Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, August 2 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Kick It With Cliff
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to hang out with a player in the National Football League? How about a Seahawks Legend, former Pro Bowl defensive end, and Super Bowl XLVIII champion?
Now is your chance, 12s, to enter a contest to win an ‘NFL 100 Experience of a Lifetime.’ The winner of the competition will get the opportunity to spend an entire day with Legend Cliff Avril.
The rules are simple really, just create an account on Twitter and/or Instagram (or if you already have one, make sure to set it to public), and post a photo and written description of what your perfect day with Cliff would look like. The important step here is to use the following hashtags: #Seahawks_fancontest, #nfl100contest, and #contest. All three hashtags must be used to be eligible for the contest.
One lucky 12 will be selected on August 19, 2019, based on the creativity of submission and passion for the team that we all know and love. If you are looking for some inspiration, below is an example of what a fellow 12 shared:
"Cliff Avril has a special place in my heart as his jersey was my first ever Seahawks jersey and he signed it before my first game at CenturyLink Field! I woke up extra early and made sure I was the first person outside the tunnel to wait for my signature and I will never forget that day! My perfect day with Cliff Avril would start by me and best friend being picked up at my house in a stretch limo and dropped off at the front entrance of CenturyLink Field for gameday. Cliff would meet us there and give us a VIP tour of the stadium including the locker room! We would get a private shopping spree at The Pro Shop to buy all the latest gear to wear on gameday. Then, we'd hangout with Cliff on the field before the game and sit in a private suite and watch the Hawks win together! #Seahawks_fancontest #nfl100contest #contest"
Submissions close at 11:59 p.m. PT on August 15. For more information and official contest rules, please visit the contest page on Seahawks.com.
