Super Bowl 2015: Meet Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson

His athletic drive comes from his late father and his faith.

"Too blessed to be stressed" reads the 26-year old's Twitter tagline along with the Bible verse John 3:30: "He must become greater; I must become less."

He said he became a Christian when Jesus visited him in a dream when he was a teen.

"He was a god in Madison, but he didn't handle it like a college kid,” said former Wisconsin teammate Aaron Henry. “Once he started having a little bit of success you found out if God was real or not for him. Girls coming at him at 100 mph. I was with him one night and I watched him pushing girls away. Any other person would’ve taken that and ran with it.”

Life moves quickly for Wilson. He married in January 2012, and three months later he was selected in the third round of the NFL draft.

Last year, months after winning the Super Bowl, he quietly filed for divorce from his wife of two years, saying, "I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce."

These days, Wilson talks and Tweet about his Christian faith, pretty much any opportunity he has.
