Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, April 13 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
A Virtual Surprise
While most students around the country are adjusting to new methods of learning, one local high school was in for a shock when they opened their computers Friday morning.
As a part of the Seahawks' Blue Friday surprise, Quandre Diggs and Michael Dickson signed in to various virtual classes hosted by Summit Sierra High School. Dickson chatted with a class of freshmen on topics ranging from his experience in school to his current routine and keeping busy among the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, Diggs offered advice to a class of high school seniors, who are balancing the reality of a different ending to their high school careers.
Some students sported their Seahawks jerseys and proudly displayed their Seahawks-themed décor in the background as Diggs and Dickson logged into their classes. Told the day before that a Seahawk would be coming to connect and support them through their process of virtual learning, Summit Sierra students were excited as we helped spread a little Blue Friday cheer.
Rest In Peace
We were stunned and heartbroken to learn of the tragic passing of former quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who passed away Sunday night. "T-Jack" earned the respect of the organization and teammates with his competitiveness, toughness and professionalism. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.
