Russell Wilson is by far one of the NFL’s most honorable men. With his devote and vocal opinion on his faith, and with his work on and off of the football field, Russell Wilson is a man that even the fans of opposing teams have to respect. Sergio Cortes said that last weekend, Wilson was on a plane and headed back to his home team of the Seattle Seahawks. Unlike some superstars, Russell travels modestly and was boarding a commercially plane and was headed up to first class.
Before he could make it to his seat, he was distracted by a few colors. A man in dark green, tan, and brown colors caught Russell’s eye. Russell was more caught off guard by what this man was carrying: a huge and obviously heavy duffle bag. Russell realized that he was seeing a soldier who was carrying his own gear and headed back to the Coach section of the plane. Anybody who knows or has even heard about this man, knows that no part of him would let this slide.
The NFL Super bowl star politely excused himself and carried the bag for the soldier. He then ushered him up to first coach and told him that he should make himself comfortable before the plane takes off. The lucky soldier had no idea that Russell was serious. In a matter of minutes, the player was seated in first class and was on his way home. There are a lot of superstars, sports players, and celebrities who claim to be model citizens. Russell Wilson has gone above and beyond to prove how honorable he is. This man walks the walk and talks the talk.
