Seahawks Kids Club members were treated to an autograph session with Seahawks center Justin Britt on Saturday, March 25 at The Landing in Renton.
Jackson Mortaloni is pretty vocal for a six-year old, but was at a loss for words last weekend.
As the Seattle Seahawks' Kids Club Member of the Year, Jackson was given the opportunity to tour team headquarters and meet a Seahawks player in-person.
An All-Pro member of Kids Club, which helps gives kids a connection with the Seahawks, Jackson was randomly selected as the winner through a generator of members. He was welcomed to the facility by Seahawks mascot, Boom, with a bookbag filled with team goods.
"It was probably more awesome for my wife and I than Jackson just because he's six years old, so he doesn't know how special of an occasion it is," Jackson's father, Jeff, said.
Bringing along his mother, father and two friends, Jackson viewed the facility alongside Seahawks center Justin Britt and had a unique and one of a kind experience.
"I thought it was great that Justin came down and took time out of his day with his family and just talked with us," said Jeff. "He answered questions, showed us around, showed us what his day is kind of like and he just shared time with us."
Britt not only crouched down to talk face-to-face with Jackson whenever he communicated with him, but autographed items and presented him with a few more gifts on the tour. That left a strong impression on Jackson he'll remember for a long time.
"He was pretty impressed by all the stuff that was given to him and he wasn't expecting that," his father said. "He's been pretty jazzed playing with all of the stuff since then."
