Russell Wilson returned to the Wisconsin campus in Madison on Saturday afternoon to give the commencement speech for the Class of 2016.
Wilson overall delivered a powerful speech that is well-worth watching on the topic of "What do you do when life tells you no?". The former Badger and current Seattle Seahawks quarterback gave the graduates advice that many of us can appreciate and take for ourselves. Check it out:
It's terrific to see Wilson pass along to his fellow Badgers the lessons and stories he has learned during his lifetime. His closing remarks are sure to stay with the graduates as he told them "I would say good luck, but I don't believe in good luck. Go make it happen."
Earlier in his speech, Wilson also joked that he was waiting for the traditional "Jump Around" and afterwards, the Class of 2016 didn't want to disappoint:
