Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, July 13 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Chancellor: "We Want To Pay It Forward"

"We want to pay it forward and show the kids a path to get to where we are one day," Chancellor said, via WAVY.com. "And hopefully, they do the same thing."

The Seahawks strong safety was joined by San Francisco 49ers linebacker Eli Harold, Washington Redskins linebacker Lynden Trail, and Tennessee Titans wideout Justin Hunter.

"We care about our community, we care about coming back and we care about giving back," said Trail, a Norfolk State grad. "We care about spending time with [the kids], and it's not enough to just tell people you care. Actions speak louder than words."

Chancellor, who puts on various events in Virginia over Memorial Day weekend through his Kam Cares Foundation, was approached by Harold, a Virginia Beach native, with the idea of putting on a free football camp for youth because according to Harold they "didn't have the opportunity to go to anything like this growing up." On top of teaching football fundamentals, Chancellor said the goal of the camp was to spread a message of love. 

"There's too much hate in this world," Chancellor said. "With everything that's going on, just treat each other with love. That's the biggest thing that I want to get across to them."
