Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Friday, July 16 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks 12 Tour To Hit The Streets Friday
The Seahawks 12 Tour returns today, as our mascot Blitz, the Seahawks Dancers, Blue Thunder, and other familiar Seahawks faces rally the 12s at pit stops throughout the Seattle area.
The day kicks off with a meeting at the Seahawks Pro Shop at The Landing in Renton from 10:00 a.m. to noon, where fans can gear up with everything they'll need for the season. Next, things will move to Lake Union Park for a group photo op at 1:00 p.m. featuring our one-of-a-kind art piece displaying the 2021 schedule.
At 3:00 p.m., we'll hold our first official Blue Friday rally of the 2021 season at Gas Works Park. With performances by the Seahawks Dancers and Blue Thunder, and appearances from Blitz and other surprise Seahawks guests, this will be a party with the 12s that you won't want to miss. After the rally, we'll have a Blue Friday Happy Hour at Elysian Capitol Hill Brewery, starting at 5:00 p.m. (must be 21+ to attend).
So put on your Blue Friday gear and show your support for the Seahawks as we inch closer to the start of the 2021 season, and be sure to stay tuned to Seahawks social media channels as we celebrate in other ways throughout the day!
For the first day of the 2020 12 Tour, we made a stop at a Seattle Safeway to thank all employees for their hard work and dedication during this time. Joining in on the fun to interact with customers and employees were Blitz, Seahawks Legend Lawyer Milloy, and a virtual visit from Tyler Lockett and David Moore.
Secure Your Spot At Seahawks Training Camp
For the first time since 2019, 12s will be back at the VMAC this year to watch the Seahawks participate in training camp workouts. And there's a lot to watch for this year, including where the pass rush picks up this season after a strong finish to 2020, how Shane Waldron's offense changes the passing game, the all-important battle for starting cornerback, and much, much more.

Bobby Wagner Partners With HBCU Legacy Bowl
The HBCU Legacy Bowl announced a partnership with Bobby Wagner on Thursday morning, the latest action representing the All-Pro linebacker's years-long support of America's Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
The HBCU Legacy Bowl is a postseason all-star game featuring the top 100 draft-eligible players from HBCUs. The inaugural game is set to be played on February 19, 2022 at Tulane University's Yulman Stadium.
"It's an honor to support the Black College Football Hall of Fame and HBCU Legacy Bowl in their efforts to provide more opportunities for students attending historically black colleges and universities," Wagner said via a press release.
Wagner has spoken in the past about his interest in HBCUs, which was sparked when a friend from home went to Howard University in Washington, D.C. After the 2018 season, he began researching ways to get involved with HBCUs himself. "If I had the knowledge that I have now, I would have [gone to an HBCU]" Wagner said to The Athletic in 2019. "That's not a shot at Utah State. Obviously, I'm grateful for the experience. But I think there's something to be said for being in (the HBCU) environment."
