In a scene reminiscent of Super Bowl XLVIII, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll completed the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) "ice bucket challenge" on Tuesday at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center.directed at Carroll by USC head coach Steve Sarkisian and followed up by a test from NFL Commmissioner Roger Goodell, asks participants to film themselves getting doused in ice water and share that video on social media to help raise awareness for ALS, also commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. If the task isn't competed within 24 hours, those challenged are asked to donate to ALS research.
Russell Wilson and Zach Miller, who showered Carroll with Gatorade this past February near the end of the team's 43-8 Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos, were the ones manning either side of the ice bucket intended for their head coach.
"I appreciate that," Carroll said to his quarterback and tight end after the pair poured a bucket of ice over his head during a press conference that followed today's training camp practice. "Thanks guys."
But before reaching for a towel to dry off, Carroll was quick to call out a few of his closest rivals.
"I want to keep it in close to the NFC West coaches - Bruce Arians, Jeff Fisher, and Jim Harbaugh," said Carroll. "I challenge you to go through the ice bucket challenge yourselves.”
