Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, September 17 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Wilson For Air Player Of The Week
Totaling an impressive 300 passing yards and three touchdown passes, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made his way on the list of nominees for the NFL's Air & Ground Players of the Week.
The widely-known and commonly-used delivery company has recognized both quarterbacks and running backs from the League for 17 years. They highlight the players who deliver the best performances for their respective fans and teammates each week. From Week 2, Wilson is a nominee amongst Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
“Each week, FedEx will donate $2,000 to the USO on behalf of the NFL award winners through FedEx Cares. The $4,000 donation will support the USO Pathfinder program, which provides resources and personalized services to assist service members and military spouses in their transition back to civilian life,” according to NFL.com.
“FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year winners—announced each year during the Super Bowl Week at NFL Honors—will receive a $20,000 donation in their name to the USO.”
