Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s “out there” for today – Tuesday, July 3 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Griffin Twins Reach Out To Twins In North Carolina
Royce and Kiyan Moore, 6-year-old twins from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, are fans of twin Seahawks Shaquill and Shaquem Griffin. The young Moore twins look up to the Griffins not just because they are twins who made it to the NFL, but also because they have a similar story.
As detailed in this wltx.com piece, Royce was born with Fibular Hemimelia, leading to the amputation of his right leg below the knee. And just as Shaquem Griffin hasn’t let the amputation of his left hand limit him in sports or in life, Royce is thriving with a prosthetic lower leg.
"I always say anything your brother can do, you can do. And possibly, you can do it better. Nothing hinders him," said Royce and Kiyan’s mother, RaShanda Penn.
When word of the Moores got to the Griffins, they recorded a video to surprise their young fans.
“We're here to talk to y'all about the dream,” Shaquem Griffin said in the video, which is embedded in the story linked above. “Stay focused...stay focused in school, stay focused on everything – stick with each other. Sometimes you’ve got to make sacrifices for your brother, but as long as you stick by each other, he's always going to be there. Hopefully, one day we can be big fans of you guys, man. So it's nice talking to you guys."
