Round-Up 052424

Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's going on out there and any news you might have missed, about your Seattle Seahawks this week.

Seattle Seahawks named 2024 Puget Sound Business Journal diversity champion

Every year, the Puget Sound Business Journal "recognizes companies that give back to their communities and inspire change."

The award highlights different areas like arts, education, public housing and food security. The Seattle Seahawks received the award for their efforts as an organization for their commitment to furthering diversity, equity and inclusion within the organization and community.

Seahawks award additional grants to high school girls flag football programs

Continuing the support for girls flag football, the Seahawks most recently donated $43,000 in grants to local high schools for their girls flag programs. Since 2021, that brings the total number of grants to $367,900. Any high school program looking for funding for girls flag football can apply here.

Seahawks marketing design manager recognized in the NFL's 'Next Woman Up'

A little over a week after the 2024 NFL schedule release, Donny Brock, marketing design manager for the Seahawks talked with NFL's Brooke Cersosimo, to talk all things schedule release. Cersosimo speaks with women working in the NFL who are "rising up the ranks throughout professional football, earning positions of power in a space that for too long was ruled almost exclusively by men."

Brock came up with the theme of 'Scheduleverse' and the direction of the schedule release.

"After we narrowed down the "Scheduleverse," it was a collaborative effort," Brock told the NFL. "We collaborated with some local artists for our comic book covers, finding different ways to give platforms to smaller creatives in the community. It was really diverse as we featured a Play-Doh artist, AI artist, traditional comic book artist and others."

The start of OTA's

The Seahawks began organized team activities on Monday and the veterans along with rookies and new players to the team have been getting in reps on the field and learning from head coach Mike Macdonald and the rest of the coaching staff. Some of the bigger takeaways from OTAs have been Macdonald's philosophy on practicing in a game-like atmosphere and the patience and deliberation installing the defense.

"We're still installing," Macdonald said Wednesday after practice. "We're going to installing defensively throughout. Install two was today, and we'll evaluate it as we go. If the guys are slow to make some checks, anticipating things, we'll make some decisions so it doesn't pile on, so we don't get too far behind. I'm not really worried about the pace of how fast we get everything in. We want a really good foundation for when we get into camp. So we have a schedule, but we'll adjust as we go."
