Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Friday, June 11 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Former Seahawks Marshawn Lynch And Justin Forsett Inducted Into Cal Athletic Hall Of Fame
A pair of former Seahawks running backs joined an elite group of athletes this week as Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett were chosen to be inducted into the University of California-Berkeley's Athletic Hall of Fame.
Forsett and Lynch were an electrifying duo during their years together at Cal, combining for 2,245 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2005, and 1,982 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2006. Forsett was a First Team All Pac-10 selection in 2007, rushing for more than 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns while Lynch earned All-Rookie Team honors that year as a member of the Buffalo Bills.
The two became teammates once again when Lynch was traded to Seattle during the 2010 season, when the Seahawks went on to defeat the then-defending champion New Orleans Saints in a truly wild Wild Card Weekend game. You may remember a certain 67-yard run by Lynch that caused the 12s to register seismic activity.
Also being inducted is Forsett's wife, Angie Pressey Forsett, a two-time All-American volleyball player at Cal from 2004 to 2007. She led the team to its first-ever NCAA semifinal berth in 2007. Lynch and the Forsetts are set to be formally inducted during a ceremony on October 29 in Berkeley.
Seahawks Summer Reading Program
All summer long, the Seahawks are inviting all elementary-aged kids to grab a book and participate in the Seahawks Summer Reading Program for a chance to win some awesome prizes! Kids are encouraged to read at least 20 minutes a day if possible, as literacy skills are recognized as one of the strongest predictors of academic success.
Throughout June, July, and August, log your child's reading minutes — for each milestone that readers collectively reach, they will all be eligible to win designated prizes. All prize winners will be selected at random and notified in early September. Together we can encourage our future leaders to find joy in reading and learning!
