Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Wednesday, November 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks Rookies Surprise Shoppers At Local Safeway

It's holiday season, as Thanksgiving is upon us tomorrow. The 6-4 Seahawks continue to give more than wins to the Pacific Northwest area, surprising Kent residents with groceries at Safeway.

Seattle's rookie class is a major factor in the team's ascension to first place in the NFC West; they were beneficiaries to the community on Tuesday evening at Safeway in Kent. KING 5 was on-hand to capture rookie tackle Charles Cross, running back Kenneth Walker III, linebacker Boye Mafe and others surprising the community grocer patrons with food and plenty of selfies.

A day after quarterback Geno Smith gave out plenty of holiday eats to Seattle residents in a collaborative effort with Seattle's Jerk Shack, the rooks hit the aisles with shocked fans in Kent.

A week after Seattle's international Week 10 journey to Munich, fans like Scott Larson and family were caught off-guard by their favorite players.

"He shook my hand and asked if I was a Seahawks fan," said Larson to KING 5."And I said yes and he said he'd like to pay for my groceries. My whole wall is Seahawks, so it's awesome."

The Michigan State alum and Seattle's leading rusher took some time to talk to KING 5 after paying-it-forward. "It's cool to get off the field and to be able to give back to the community," said Walker. "A lot of times you are really busy and it's a good time to kick back and see people who you love."

Once 12s in the Pacific-Northwest and beyond are full on Thanksgiving, they'll shift focus to Week 12's home matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders - as will the Seahawks.

The Seahawks rookie class surprised shoppers at Safeway in Kent, WA on November 22, 2022, buying their groceries or handing out gift cards for patrons gathering last-minute items in preparation for Thanksgiving.
