Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is one of the most promising young stars in the NFL, and he's only in year two. The former third-round pick dishes on how he carved his path after graduating high school in the latest issue of Men's Fitness, of which he is featured on the cover:

“I was offered a million dollars [by the Baltimore Orioles out of high school]. I turned it down, and I went to North Carolina State to play football and baseball, and I promised my dad I would graduate in three years, so I took 18 credits each semester.”
