Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, May 21 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
NFL 360: I Am Shaquem Griffin
It may come as no surprise to hear that NFL Network’s feature story on Shaquem Griffin took the cake on Monday evening at the 2019 Sports Emmy Awards. This now marks another win for NFL 360: I Am Shaquem Griffin, winning the award for Outstanding Short Feature.
The 40th annual award show is presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, more commonly known as NATAS. The purpose of the show is to recognize excellence in American sports television programming, including sports-related series, the best sports announcers, and live coverage of sports events.
NFL Network’s coverage of NFL 360: I Am Shaquem Griffin taking home the Outstanding Short Feature award adds to the list of 20 awards nominations overall for 2019, four of which were for NFL 360 pieces.
A prior award to note that was given to the same feature piece was a 2019 Webby Award given in the sports social video category, in addition to the People’s Voice award.

Social Post Of The Day
Today’s ‘Social Post of the Day’ comes from Seahawks wide receiver Gary Jennings, as he shares a photo taken over the weekend at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere.
The Seahawks started Organized Team Activities this week, marking the first time in the team's 2019 voluntary offseason workout program that on-field work can include offense vs. defense drills, though contact is still prohibited. The first of 10 OTAs was held on Monday, May 20 at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
