Russell Wilson: NFL Quarterback With a Mission

NFL championship-winning Russell Wilson, quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks, is a man with a mission!

It's not just about football. It’s about the “Why Not You Foundation” that he started in 2014 to motivate youth, one child at a time, to be tomorrow’s leaders and to make a “positive impact throughout their lives."

In a 2016 interview with Maria Shriver she asked him about how to bridge the divisions in today’s world. He said: “My faith is very, very strong as you know.

"For me, it always comes back to that biblical aspect that 1 Corinthians 13:13 talks about—faith, hope and love. And the greatest of all is love. If we don’t have love, we have nothing.

"You know God put us all on this earth to serve, give back and to love one another. We live in this world where it’s easy for me to focus on me!”
