Walter Jones Follows Through On Promise To Middle School Student

Seahawks Legend Walter Jones followed through this week on a friendly bet he made with a Sammamish middle school student.

Last year, Jones made a bet with Pine Lake student Kate Colbourne after she told the former Seahawks offensive lineman she could out-cycle him at a fundraiser. The loser had to take the other person out to lunch. Jones lost, and instead of taking Kate out to lunch, she asked the Pro Football Hall of Famer to come to a school assembly, instead. The assembly was a food drive that benefited Pine Lake's sister school in Tukwila, where 90 percent of students qualify for free or reduced meals.

"I came out and it was something that really touched me," Jones said.
