Russell Wilson is a role model.  A GREAT role model.

Today the NFC Champion and America’s Favorite Team, Seattle Seahawks begin OTAs (organized team activities) and every day, every meeting, every chance to compete is ‘super’ important to Wilson and this team.  Despite this being an important start to an important run towards the 2015 NFL season, Russell Wilson chose to fly to Miami with new teammate (and future favorite target) Jimmy Graham to support him at services for Tamara Myerson who was Graham’s longtime mentor and manager, as well as an important mother figure in his life.

Condolences to Graham and the Myerson family.

Kudos to Russell Wilson for knowing what is most important in life – people.

Unfortunately, the kids at Children’s Hospital in Seattle may have to wait until next Tuesday for Wilson to return to his regular visitation schedule.
