Monday Round-Up: Jacob and Cody Hollister Surprise Special Needs Athletes 

Jacob and Cody Hollister partner with Portland-area training company to surprise special needs athletes.


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, June 8 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Bringing A Smile

Bringing some positive interaction with local athletes, Jacob Hollister and his twin brother, Cody, had a very special surprise for children across Portland and Central Oregon. They partnered with Specialty Athletic Training, a company that works to provide personal training services exclusively for clients with special needs. For those who may have previously had negative experiences with exercise, Specialty Athletic Training helps their clients exercise in a thoughtful and engaging way.

Hoping to turn these negative experiences into positive ones, the organization looks to set up their clients with professional athletes like Jacob and Cody Hollister.

As Oregon natives, the Hollister brothers understand the impact that one surprise call can make: "It just puts everything in perspective, where it's easy to get caught up being in this bubble and just being in the NFL and being used to it. You think back to when we were kids and just how excited we were just to be at an NFL game… That just puts it all in perspective… It makes the day, it makes the week."
