Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, September 21 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks and Falcons Players Visit Joint Base-Lewis-McChord.
With back-to-back games on the West Coast, the Falcons are staying in Seattle this week ahead of their Week 3 matchup with the Seahawks, and on Tuesday the two teamed up to show support for the armed forces, taking joint trip to Joint Base Lewis-McChord - and were joined by some special guests.
Seahawks players like wideout Cody Thompson and offensive tackle Stone Forsythe joined Falcons players in getting a tour of the base and participating in a fun day with our beloved troops.
Super Bowl XLVIII Champion and Lakewood native Jermaine Kearse joined the two teams, taking pictures and signing autographs on his childhood base.
Kearse was born and raised on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the son of David, a sergeant first class in the Army. Throughout Kearse's career and travels, the base has always been a place of refuge - and a vessel for him to give back to military youth like himself.
As the two teams now prepare for their Sunday matchup, the Seahawks will look to give the troops a win.
Hispanic Heritage Month Highlight: Angelina Villalobos
Seattle-born artist Angelina Villalobos is our Hispanic Heritage Month Honoree of the Week. Villalobos is one of the Pacific-Northwest's most-profound artists, with a large variety of her works on display across the country and internet. The 2021 game five Seahawks Game Day Poster designer made her way from Seattle Central Community College to working with everyone from the Seattle Public Library to The Seattle Opera.
Villalobos' vibrant artworks range from murals to illustrations, creating artworks seen across the city and nation. Villalobos worked with the Microsoft Store to tell her story in 2018 on video - while creating murals for the various microsoft store locations.

Villalobos is an anchor in the art industry, and a shining example for young Hispanic women as she continues to break down doors and redefine art.
