Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Wednesday, December 11 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

2019 College Football Hall Of Fame Class

History was made on Tuesday evening as the 62nd NFF Annual Awards Dinner took place in Midtown New York. The 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Class was honored throughout the evening and inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Two of its members, 12s would recognize—Seahawks Legend Jacob Green and former head coach Dennis Erickson.

Having played 11 of his 12 NFL season in Seattle, Green had a notable career with the Seahawks after making a pair of Pro Bowls and becoming a member of the Seahawks Ring of Honor. However, on Tuesday evening, Green was more so recognized for his time as a First Team All-American Aggie, spending his college football career on the defensive line at Texas A&M from 1977 to 1979.

"This is a universal award for my family, coaches and Texas A&M," Green said of making the Hall. "I could have never done it without them. Aggies all over the country are excited for me—at least the ones I've talked to—which is pretty good."

Setting records in both Texas and Seattle, Green was rightfully honored into the College Football Hall of Fame as the 11th Aggie player to be inducted.

Former head coach Dennis Erickson was also honored at the event and inducted into the 2019 class with Green. Erickson was at the helm in Seattle from 1995 to 1998, but his recognition in the NYC ballroom was for his college coaching career spent between Idaho, Wyoming, Washington State, Miami, Oregon State, and Arizona State.
