Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, September 8 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Connect With The Seahawks' Quarterback
Russell Wilson launched his very own mobile app Friday morning, introducing TraceMe to fans who wish to follow the Seahawks quarterback on a more personal level in his day-to-day life.
"It's been really important for me to include my fans," Wilson said in a video on Twitter announcing the app's release. "For you guys to get to know me on a personal level and kind of see the behind the scenes and all the hard work you put into something to try to be great. I'm super excited to be able to share this with you all. I want you guys to be able to have that panoramic view. The reality is, we also trace you. We will be studying what you guys want to know, develop our relationship all throughout my career. It really means a lot."
While Wilson will be the first individual featured on the app, TraceMe has plans to offer an inside look at the lives of other celebrities, with more athletes said to be in line, according to ESPN.
"I want to connect directly with my most passionate fans -- my superfans," Wilson told ESPN.com. "I want to provide them a front-row seat, right by my side, as I go on this journey -- no matter where they may be. And I'm not the only one. Many of my friends, from athletes to entertainers, say they'd love this too."
According to ESPN, content during the app's beta test will include a weekly podcast from Wilson, his interviews with other athletes, and access to his personal team, including his trainer, mental coach, and cook.
