“Why not you?”—The Immeasurable Heart of Russell Wilson

Written by Don Yaeger on . Posted in Chasing Greatness Blog

Russell Wilson

“Why not you?”

These simple words were spoken to Russell Wilson by his father, Harrison, and they would change his life.

Years before his Super Bowl championship with the Seattle Seahawks, Wilson was a high-school senior and multi-sport athlete, torn between a baseball career and football dreams. The Baltimore Orioles had drafted him straight out of high school with a guarantee of a million dollar contract. Deep down, however, Wilson desired to play professional football one day, but there was one issue that every coach and scout had raised: At a little under six feet, he was undersized. It was the same old song he had heard since playing youth football.

Congratulations Coach K!

Congratulations Coach K on 1,000 Wins!

Congratulations to one of my favorite people in sports, Mike Krzyzewski, head basketball coach of Duke University!

Coach K is, in many ways, a modern day John Wooden, and he has achieved something that has never before been done in Division I men’s collegiate basketball: 1,000 wins. In celebration, I would love to share with you some of the lessons I have learned from him that have made his teams so consistently successful.
