Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Tuesday, November 6 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Seahawks Honor Heroics Of Boise Black Knights Youth Football Team

This past May, while driving back from a football tournament, the Boise Black Knights encountered a vehicle that had rolled over onto the side of the road. The team, made up of 12-, 13-, and 14-year-old youth football players, sprang into action to help save the couple inside.

Regan Magill, a player on the team who took video of the rescue that ended up going viral, said, "We stopped because we care about others before ourselves. We just wanted to know if they were OK. It wasn't really something we thought about. We just instantly pulled over."

Added Rudy Jackson, the Black Knights' head coach: "I'm more than proud. I'm at a loss for words. They got out of the car like they were supposed to do that … it's a great bunch of kids."

The Seahawks honored the Black Knights' heroics this past weekend, hosting the youth football team at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Saturday's walk-thru practice before continuing the celebration at CenturyLink Field, where the team was recognized during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Black Knights also received a $5,000 grant from USA Football, which will go toward supplying the Boise team with new equipment.
