Before you settle in for Super Bowl XLVIII, the United Way and Seahawks defensive end
Avril is the Seahawks representative in the TEAM NFL Playoff Challenge - a competition between a member of each club to recruit the most volunteers to help better their respective communities.
Avril currently trails Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats for the campaign lead, having recruited 5,810 volunteers to Moats' 5,910. The challenge ends this Sunday, Feb. 2, after which a $10,000 grant for community work will be awarded to the winner.
"I feel like education is key, especially in our community," said Avril. "We just need more people to go out there and volunteer."
