Russell Wilson made a pretty big impression on Federal Way.

The Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback was in town Monday evening to sign autographs and pose for photos at Walt's Auto Care Center. Wilson was in town to kick off a food drive for the Federal Way Multi-Service Center. The center is currently low on food and Walt's is hosting a food drive all week long. There will be a drawing and the winner will receive a football autographed by Wilson.

On Monday evening, the line around Walt's stretched around the block, and despite having a previous charity engagement, Wilson signed an autograph for everybody who stood in line.

Walt's Auto Care Center is located at 34110 Pacific Highway S.
