Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Aug. 13 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Brock Coyle's Montana Roots
Seahawks linebacker Brock Coyle today announced that over the next few weeks he'll be taking time to blog about his journey to the NFL.
Coyle came to the Seahawks last year as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Montana and impressed enough in preseason to make the team's 53-man roster. He played in 15 games his rookie year and saw most of his action on special teams, but he also started a pair of games at middle linebacker in place of an injured Bobby Wagner.
In his first post, Coyle, a Bozeman native, tells fans how his Montana roots have helped shape him into the person he is today. His first entry can be found right here and a short excerpt is laid out for you below.
I wouldn't be who I am today without the faith, family and focus on sports that my small town Montana upbringing gave me. Being brought up with these virtues built my character and gave me the courage to go after my dreams! Having respect for others, enjoying the outdoors, working from dawn til dusk and not giving up are all attributes I have gained over the years. I've been able to take the same attitude and Montana culture and use it on the football field. It's safe to say that I have a relentless love for the State of Montana and for the game of football.
The only way I know is 100%, giving my full effort and staying passionate. I am never satisfied and am almost obsessed with getting better and improving myself on a daily basis. I love the physical nature of the game of football and while I know it's not full on "war", having the attitude of going to battle with your brother and leaving everything on the field is a feeling that can't be match anywhere else.
