Never realized how much this kid went through to get where he is. Liked him from the first time he stepped onto the field for the Skins, and happy to have him back.

Every year in the NFL there is a story of an athlete who overcomes great odds to make his dream come true and be invited into the coolest club on earth: the National Football League. None of these guys’ stories are any less important or compelling than the others and any man who makes it to the NFL should be commended for his sacrifice and hard work.

One such man that must be mentioned within this context is Washington Redskins’ linebacker, Chris Wilson, who after not playing the 2011 season, burst (back) onto the professional football scene this off-season with speed and energy that cannot be ignored. Anyone who didn’t know much about Wilson before is certainly noticing him now and for good reason. Since returning to the team, he has displayed a fire that was not there before. It showed up in the preseason for all to see.

Here’s an example: in the third game against the Indianapolis Colts, Wilson was rotated in and out with the first team and landed hits on Colts’ rookie starting quarterback Andrew Luck three times. He also recorded a safety when he sacked Indy’s backup quarterback Chandler Harnish.

Wilson’s journey to the 2012 season is one that is a study in spirit and perseverance. The former Northwood Timberwolf has always had a strong faith but he has been through trials that would leave lesser men thinking, 'why bother?’ An inner-city kid from Flint, Michigan, Wilson was tested first by his surroundings.

Yep, good read, these stories always amaze me and lend a personal touch to these guys that are too often treated like junk yard auto parts by the local shade tree mechanics.

Looks like it could be time for Chris to shine. While I think Jackson may get the start in place of Rak, I expect to see Chris on the field a lot. While most look at his size as a negative, I think it make him a bit harder to contain. He got a good burst of speed working for him, and has a nose for finding the QB.
