Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Tuesday, January 14 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Good Morning Blitz
"Blitz, the mascot, come on out!" Exclaims Good Morning America host Michael Strahan sitting aside Seattle native Quentin Corr, who is this year's NFL Kid Correspondent.
Cue the music, drop Seahawks-themed balloons from the ceiling, and out comes Blitz with a signed Seahawks helmet and custom-made No. 12 jersey in hand. You should watch the video below to check out the look on Quentin's face—he's so surprised that he won the NFL's contest after thinking he was invited on the morning show as one of the finalists.
Every year the National Football League selects a 'kid correspondent' to cover the Super Bowl as a part of NFL Play 60, an initiative that encourages youth to get at least 60 minutes per day of physical activity. This year's winner is Quentin Corr, a 13-year-old from Seattle, die-hard Seahawks fan, and Russell Wilson's biggest supporter.
Right before Blitz came out and the balloons dropped, Corr was surprised on set of GMA with a special video messaged delivered by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson thanked the Washington native for his continuous support and informed him that he was the League's Kid Correspondent.
Corr was essentially speechless once Blitz came out and the word 'Elated' might as well have been written on his forehead.
Quentin will be headed down to Miami for a 7-day trip where he'll serve as a media correspondent with hits on multiple outlets including Good Morning America and Good Morning Football. He'll be responsible for interviewing players, asking questions at press conferences, and much more. It'll be a busy week for the Seahawks super fan!
"If you live a healthy lifestyle, you could extend your lifetime," noted Quentin in his original submission video. "And all we have is today, shouldn't we make the best of it? GO HAWKS!"
