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.

I think it's because after him and Ashton have a baby then there will be 3 people in their family.

I read the manufacturers label and it said the #3 represents the amount of toes on each foot for this model.

Russell chose #3 because that's how many days it took Him to create the Universe, he's just too humble to deliberately throw it in God's face.

#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.

It's because of his 'third eye', in the spiritual sense. He's a big hindu/bhuddist/taoist/shinto kinda guy, truth be known.

Russell is number 3 because that's how many touchdowns he was going to score in the first half of the first football game he played outside the USA.

Wilson wears #3 because he knew no matter what he did, that is where he would finish for OROY to the more hyped rookie QBs.

Russell Wilson wore 16 in college

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

John 3. 16 says "For God so loved the world that he gave his onlySon, so that everybody who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life"
