MADISON -

After a year of leading the Seattle Seahawks to the playoffs, playing in the Pro Bowl, and proving the doubters wrong, Russell Wilson returned to Madison Saturday to host a football camp with his Russell Wilson Passing Academy.

The camp is being held at Camp Randall Saturday and Sunday. 

Wilson brought back some friends as well.

Former teammate Montee Ball was on hand to help with coaching, while former Badger and current Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler was there, too. 

While Wilson only played one year as a Badger, he speaks highly of the experience coming back as a former player. 

"To have a family like this at Wisconsin is special and something to be cherished," said Wilson.

Wilson led the Badgers to a Big Ten Championship in 2011. That season, he set Badgers single-season records for passing yards, completions, touchdowns, and efficiency.
