Good afternoon, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, July 16 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Sharing Their Story
In their continued efforts to promote their book titled Inseparable: How Family and Sacrifice Forged a Path to the NFL, Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin and linebacker Shaquem Griffin were guests on a Hallmark morning talk show Monday morning. The twins sat down with the two hosts and were interviewed to talk about their story from young Florida natives to NFL teammates.
Shaquem and Shaquill also touched on the fact that they’ve made history of being the first twins in the National Football League to play football for the same team. They both smiled when adding to their response that they made a tackle together during the game.
Shaquem was later asked how much he advocates and inspires for young boys and girls out there that live with limb differences. He responded, “I mean it’s amazing. I think for me, it’s like refreshing, it’s humbling, and being able to see the kids with limb differences. It’s not about what they just lost, it’s about all the things that they gained. And it’s so crazy to me because when I was young, I didn’t really have somebody to look up to like that and somebody that I can meet and say, ‘You know what? I want to do this; I want to do that.’ And for me to go see those kids and see that I’m making a difference for them and that these kids are not worrying about the amputation they just had, they’re just worried about playing football, they’re worried about running track, they’re worried about playing basketball, going swimming. Their energy is just so courageous, they just want to do everything. It just makes you want to do more, it’s like you all are inspiring me, I need to go back and work out, I need to get my stuff together.”
The Griffin brothers’ book, Inseparable: How Family and Sacrifice Forged a Path to the NFL is available for purchase on Amazon.com.
