The Career of Seahawks’ Quarterback Russell Wilson
Amin Andy Lakha, the chief executive officer and director of real estate at Lakha Investments in Bellevue, Washington, is an avid fan of the Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson. Amin Andy Lakha has had the pleasure of meeting several Seahawks players.
Selected 75th overall in the 2012 National Football League draft by the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson immediately took over as the team’s starting quarterback. Wilson started all 16 games that season, compiling an 11-5 record and garnering his first of three Pro Bowl selections. Wilson threw for 572 yards in two postseason appearances that year.
In 2013, Wilson increased his passing yardage to 3,357, decreased the number of interceptions he threw, and matched the 26 touchdown passes of his rookie season. He was once again selected to play in the Pro Bowl. Wilson took a true step forward in the postseason, leading the 13-3 Seahawks to a Super Bowl title. Wilson completed more than 63 percent of his passes in the playoffs for three touchdowns and 524 yards.
In 2014, Wilson once again appeared in all 16 games as starting quarterback. Seattle returned to the Super Bowl after winning 12 regular-season games but fell to the New England Patriots. In 2015, Wilson increased his completion rate to 68 percent and threw a career-high 34 touchdown passes, earning a third trip to the Pro Bowl. The 10-6 Seahawks lost in the second round of the playoffs.
