After leading the Seattle Seahawks to their crushing Super Bowl XLVIII defeat of the Denver Broncos—and their veteran quarterback Peyton Manning—during his second NFL season, Russell Wilson proved himself to be a powerhouse on the football field. Attaching himself to a host of causes, including bullying and domestic violence, the upstart quarterback has also become a formidable force for good off the field. This exciting volume chronicles how Wilson worked hard to defy expectations and rise to stardom. Wilson’s many accomplishments will inspire readers and teach them that it is never too early to make a difference.
