Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Wednesday, June 19 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
George Fant’s Dream Big Camp
‘Tis the season (or should I say, “the offseason?”) for player-hosted football camps and Seahawks offensive tackle George Fant made his way back to Kentucky to host his. The multi-sport athlete hosted a free youth football and basketball camp, George Fant’s Dream Big Camp, in his hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky on Sunday.
The four-year Seahawk is a legend in Kentucky as he attended Warren Central High School, a local area high school, as well as Western Kentucky University. Fant wanted to give kids the opportunity in his hometown that he never had.
From all sorts of drills on the court and on the field, the youth camp included plenty of activities to keep the kids busy and active. Fant was quoted in an article published by a local ABC affiliate, saying, “I wanted to do something for kids that I didn’t get to do when I was younger. I grew up in this community, I love this community, and I just wanted to make sure that everybody has a good time.”
In addition to giving his time and sharing his knowledge of the game, Fant spent time delivering some motivational and insightful words to the group. “I think goals are something that you set and make sure you achieve them. So, my biggest goal right now is to win a Super Bowl this year, and that’s my goal. After you get that, you go set another goal higher,” said the offensive tackle.
Fant says he plans on heading back to Bowling Green next year for an even bigger and better two-day camp. Looks like we’ll be dreaming bigger and bigger!
