NC State's Wilson Back To Focusing On Football

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson sneaked in as much football as possible during his first two months playing professional baseball in Washington state.

Wilson missed spring football with N.C. State coach Tom O'Brien's blessing to focus on baseball with the Wolfpack. After being drafted by the Colorado Rockies, he went on to play with the Tri-City Dust Devils in Pasco, Wash. He batted .230 with 11 RBIs and two home runs in 32 games.

Wilson said Monday he didn't know for certain if he'd play football in 2010 after the Rockies picked him in the fourth round of the draft in June. He was a first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference performer as a freshman passer two seasons ago.
