Friday declared ‘Russell Wilson Day’ at Collegiate School

Collegiate School will celebrate alum Russell Wilson’s NFL playoff win this Friday, Jan. 11, by hosting Russell Wilson Day and inviting students to wear Seattle Seahawks or Collegiate spirit wear to school. Students and staff members also will enjoy a cake decorated with a congratulatory message to Wilson, who quarterbacked the Seattle Seahawks to a 24-14 win against the Washington Redskins in the NFL divisional playoffs Sunday at FedEx Field in Maryland.

Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods is donating 50 cakes to Collegiate to celebrate the accomplishments of Wilson and his team.

Wilson is a 2007 graduate of Collegiate who starred at North Carolina State and Wisconsin collegiately before winning Seattle's starting job as a rookie this year.
