Wilson Makes ESPN's World Fame 100

ESPN released its annual rankings of the biggest names in sports Tuesday morning with the 2018 World Fame 100 list. The rankings are generated by ESPN's Sports Analytics Group that factors in search score (how often their name is searched), endorsement money and social media followers.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was named on the list for the third year in row, coming in at No. 81. Below is ESPN's explanation for his ranking. You can check out the full list here.

"Year after year, Russell Wilson proves he is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the NFL. Last season, he became the fastest quarterback in the Super Bowl-era to reach 150 passing touchdowns and 3,000 rushing yards, while leading the league in TD passes and his team in rushing. If that's not enough, Wilson also added this to his growing list of titles: founder. Along with investors including Amazon's Jeff Bezos, he created TraceMe in 2017, a company that aims to connect celebrities with fans. He's an NFL star, rising entrepreneur and new dad -- he and singer Ciara welcomed their first child in February. Wilson's star is only rising."
