Russell Wilson #3?
Thu May 23, 2013 2:54 pm
  • I have watched video of Russell from Highschool, NC State and Wisconson and he has never worn the number 3 jersey.
    Does anyone know why he chose #3 for Seattle. I have always wondered why #3?

  • Got any evidence for that, BFS? I can't seem to find any confirmation of any reasons on El Goog. I assumed it was because he was drafted in the 3rd round.

  • He isn't far off. Wilson stated he chose #3 because he wore 16 in college, and John 3:16 is his favorite bible passage. I am paraphrasing, but that was the gist of it.

  • He also liked the fact that his new and old number combined to make 3:16. I believe there was a thread about this pretty recently.

    Found this by searching "Russell Wilson" and "3:16" on Twitter (give me a social media-ing medal):

    Russell Wilson‏@DangeRussWilson 27 May
    @Tobybear my old number was 16... So now John 3:16 is fitting. Also 3= the Trinity. Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 3 is Godly #

  • So what's wrong with football players using their freedom of religion?

    I apologize for turning this into a religion war but seriously, what's wrong with that? If you don't like it don't read about it.

  • I would like to encourage more speculation on why he chose the #3.

    I'll start.

    In his last year at North Carolina State he averaged 3.0 yards per carry... hence the number 3.

  • #3 because after he throws his 3rd TD in every game and our defense is pitching a shutout that's when he'll be pulled and the backup will go in.

    He choose #3 because his favorite bible passage is John 3 16
