Russell Wilson starts his own passing academy

Russell Wilson has started his own passing academy, the Russell Wilson Quarterback Academy (RWQB). His former Seahawks teammate, Jake Heaps, will serve as president. Heaps was on the team’s practice squad last year.

Heaps made the announcement on his Twitter account. Wilson posted a video, directing a message at potential clients.

“Welcome to RWQB,” Wilson says on the video. “We’re going to have some fun together. I’m super excited to teach you guys the game of football and continue to grow in terms of playing the quarterback position. I’m super excited to partner up with my man, Jake Heaps, a guy who has played in the National Football League, a guy who has been in the meeting rooms, been in the fire.”

The RWQB website says the academy will provide “the highest level of instruction for quarterbacks of all ages, NFL, college, and high school.” Of course, the idea of an NFL quarterback showing up at the academy, unless it’s a Seahawks backup, probably ranks as unlikely.

    Russell Wilson is so business-savvy. He’s going to be the first NFL player billionaire, book it

    Didn’t Wislon start this academy several years ago?

    With the money he is making, does he really need this camp which will make not so much? Whatever, get it while you can, I guess.

    I follow the team pretty closely and he has been going on for 3 or 4 years already. It always looked like a family and kids event where he travels through US and a few stops in Canada.

    You can Google it and the first one shows up in 2013.

    He’s been running this camp for over 5 years. They’ve had a session at his highschool in Richmond, VA for years, as well as Seattle.

    I’m surprised this article didn’t mention anything about how he once attended the Manning passing academy. I like how he’s carrying the baton that’s awesome.

    Lesson 1. Don’t throw it from the 1

    Sounds like a scam.

    Think this was years ago, but kudos.

  14. fmaluf says: Jul 6, 2017 6:42 AM

    Lesson 1: If you r at the 1 And have a good RB, dont pass.

  15. marthisdil says: Jul 6, 2017 8:38 AM

    Lesson 1: Don’t pass when you should run. (ex: see SB loss to Pats)

    Y’all just haters

    Great. He will teach you how to throw an interception at the one yard line and also how to be a game manager. LOL He probably needs the Beast Mold to help him out. ROTFL.

  18. omeimontis says: Jul 7, 2017 10:27 AM

    Will he name it Wilson University? Hope he does not charge a lot of tuition fees because the students may sue him just like Trump University students sued Trump. LOL

    Wilson is going to have a huge year this year. League MVP. I’m calling it now.
