Russell Wilson has gotten fully settled into Denver and seems like he’s ready to get things rolling with his new coaches and teammates.
Before that though, the Wilsons visited the White House for an Easter event and had a little football fun.
They broke out the football and had cones set up and Russ and Ciara did a few drills. On one particular one, Russ gives his wife a pass and she goes through the drills flawlessly and then hit the griddy after scoring.
If you don’t know what the griddy is.
The Griddy dance was originally invented by Louisiana’s Allen Davis, a friend of former LSU wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who wanted to create his own rhythmic dance after he was inspired by the Nae Nae craze in the mid 2010s.
Davis created the dance and friend of his posted it on Snapchat, and the following morning, he was inundated by videos of people copying his dance.
Once Chase found himself at LSU, he introduced the dance to teammate Justin Jefferson, and the pair introduced the dance to the rest of LSU’s locker room. Jefferson brought the dance to a national stage during his sophomore season in 2019 in a matchup vs. Texas, when he exploded for 163 yards and three touchdowns: After his first TD, Jefferson broke out the griddy for the world to see.
For your entertainment, here is a step-by-step breakdown to how to do the Griddy:
Score a touchdown;
Tap your heels, alternating between left and right foot forward;
Make an “OK” symbol with your hands, (throw your Bs!), and, while in rhythm (this is likely difficult for some of you), bring them up to your eyes like imaginary goggles;
Swing your arms back and forth and across;
Russ has a nice receiving core in Denver but he could always use one more.
