The Russell Wilson family tree Russell Wilson consists of his father Harrison Wilson III and mother Tammy Wilson and brother Harrison Wilson IV and sister Anna Wilson. The 2012 NFL draft introduced the league to many new franchise quarterbacks from Andrew Luck to Robert Griffin III, but Russell Wilson is outshining them all playing his heart out for the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs after winning his Wild Card slot.

The Wilson family is full of winners in education and sports. Russell Wilsonís father left this world in 2010, but not before building a legacy for his son to obtain his dream in the NFL. The Wilson brothers practiced with their father in the early morning hours developing a work ethic for champions. His parents and other relatives also served as examples of success through education and religion too. The combination of faith, education, and a strong work ethic boosted Russell Wilson to momentous heights and maybe even a Super Bowl Victory in 2013!
Who are the Russell Wilson Ancestors? Wilsonís grandfather, Benjamin Wilson III tells the family history from his platform as the President of Norfolk University in Virginia. His fatherís family began their American history as slaves on a plantation in Big Island Virginia, but his grandfather was freed after serving a Confederate colonel in the Civil War. His grandmotherís family settled in Ohio and was not restrained by the shackles of slavery; therefore she was free as a black woman to be a degree from Wilburforce University and used her education to teach in a one room school house in Kentucky. While the Wilson family advanced their societal positions in education, the Wilson family members excelled in many sports including football, basketball, baseball, and track.
