Russell Wilson and the Seahawks players continuing what has now become an offseason tradition with a player-organized optional "camp". Sunday morning many players met at VMAC before heading off to Hawaii.
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, April 17 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
From The Hawaiian Islands
We recapped a good amount of Seahawks players' social media posts from this week's Hawaii-based player-driven workouts in Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday's Round-Ups, but as expected, fresh social scenes continue to pour in.
Here's a look at some more on-the-field and off-the-field updates from the Hawaiian Islands, where quarterback Russell Wilson, tight ends Jimmy Graham, Luke Willson, Cooper Helfet, and RaShaun Allen, wide receivers Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Kevin Norwood, Chris Matthews, and Ricardo Lockette, running back Demitrius Bronson, fullback Derrick Coleman, cornerbacks Richard Sherman, Cary Williams, Eric Pinkins, and Will Blackmon, linebackers Bruce Irvin, Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, and Mike Morgan, and safeties Kam Chancellor and Dion Bailey, and more have gathered for an unofficial offseason program, and a little fun in the sun.
Paul Allen Up For "Geek of the Year"
Seattle-rooted website GeekWire.com is introducing a new category for voting at this year's GeekWire Awards - "Geek of the Year" - and Seahawks owner Paul Allen is one of five candidates.
Todd Bishop at GeekWire.com explains why Allen is up for the inaugural honor:
Paul Allen, the Microsoft co-founder, may be best-known as a technology mogul and owner of the Seattle Seahawks, but he was also a leader in the battle against Ebola over the past year, pledging $100 million to help fight the deadly disease in West Africa. His company, Vulcan Inc., also organized Ebola-related initiatives including an effort to send 8,000 smartphones to community leaders and aid workers.
Meanwhile, Allen funded a new Allen Institute for Cell Science, his latest research effort, expanding beyond the Allen Institutes for Brain Science and Artificial Intelligence.
The seventh annual GeekWire awards will be held May 7 at the Allen-owned EMP museum. Tickets are available right here.
