Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, September 10 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Kennedy Catholic Victorious, 32-27
The air is still as the football awaited its kick on CenturyLink Field turf. The crowd was equally split 50/50 between Kennedy Catholic High School and Bethel High School. Awaiting the return was Kennedy Catholic receiver and Cal commit Justin Baker.
The KC student section went wild in the stands of CenturyLink Field as Baker returned the kick for a 91-yard touchdown. Aside from the cheering, the Lancers were easy to spot with “L-A-N-C-E-R-S” spelled in body paint across the front row.
Leading the victorious team (KC, 32-27) was five-star quarterback Sam Huard. Believe it or not, the UW commit actually has a relation to the Seattle Seahawks; his uncle is Seahawks Legend Brock Huard. In an article published by The Tacoma News Tribune, Sam was quoted, “This environment, this crowd, it was electric. It got really loud at times. Once you get into it, it’s just a football game.”
The first game (which was nationally televised on ESPNU) of the Seahawks Blue Friday Night Lights second season was a success as CenturyLink Field hosted the two high schools last Friday evening. This matchup was the first of four high school football games that the Seahawks will be involved in throughout the Fall.
In celebration of youth football and spreading a love for the game, the Seahawks Blue Friday Night Lights program brings Seahawks gameday entertainment elements to these games. At each of the featured games, mascot Blitz, DJ Supa Sam, Blue Thunder, and Seahawks Dancers join the fun, while a Seahawks player or Legend participates in the coin toss (Seahawks safety Tedric Thompson was there last week).
