Bill Russell, one of the greatest athletes of all time, died at 88 on Sunday morning.

Legendary Boston Celtics player who won 11 NBA championships and five league titles.

He was an MVP during his playing career and died peacefully with his wife.

Russell was a great player but wasn't a sure thing in high school.

Russell was offered admission to San Francisco High School by only one school.

It is crazy to believe that one of the greatest players in basketball history could be considered insane.

Only one scholarship offer was made to him as a recruit.

Russell was the USF's champion in 1955 and 1956.

He was the No. He was the No. 2 overall pick in the 1956 NBA Draft.
