Russell Wilson made history becoming just the second African-American quarterback to win a Super Bowl as he led the Seattle Seahawks to a dominating 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Wilson—whose grandfather, Harry B. Wilson, Jr. is a former president of the historically Black university Norfolk State University—now joins Doug Williams formerly of the Washington NFL franchise as the only Black men to win a Super Bowl as starting quarterback. The Richmond, Va. native is, at 25, also the third youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl.
