Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Friday, June 10 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is a vocal leader on and off the field - and a champion for his native Tulsa community. In May, Lockett received an Emmy Award for his feature on Black Wall Street. This week, Lockett flew 12 students and 12 chaperones from Tulsa to Seattle for a job shadowing program with Virginia Mason Franciscan Health.
Lockett discussed the foundation and the opportunities he is creating in 2021 following the Seahawks nominating him for the Walter Payton Man of The Year Award.
"People from my hometown, they don't really see what life is like outside of where we grow up, so unless you play sports, nobody is going out of town," Lockett said "And so once you finally get out of your own city and you're able to see what life is like outside of it, then you get a new perspective. It allows you a vision and to have an imagination."
Lockett tripled the number of participants this time, giving a mix of boys and girls a chance to experience a new opportunity.
