Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Wednesday, October 16 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Reflecting On Reflection
While scrolling through Facebook back in 2010, Seahawks veteran wide receiver Tyler Lockett found his passion for poetry when he least expected it. The then-high-school senior began writing poetry in his final year at Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The passion turned into a routine method of self-expression as we fast forward nine years to October of 2019 when the All-Pro receiver released his original poetry book, Reflection.
On October 15, Lockett’s book hit the shelves (both figurative and literal) after years in the making. The five-year Seahawk has been promoting his book via Twitter over the past couple of months, and now that it’s finally open to the public eye, Twitter’s got a response—and let me tell you, it’s extremely positive.
It’s evident how well the poetry is being received based on the replies to Lockett’s ‘official’ release on Twitter. Between screenshots of Amazon.com shopping carts to photos of the physical book, 12s were expressing their excitement to grab their copy and give it a read.
Lockett himself has been retweeting a few tweets to show gratitude for his support.
Lockett also spent a portion of his off day during Week 7 to travel around Seattle and promote his book in person. Amazon News live-streamed a Q&A session with Tyler that was hosted on Tuesday at the Amazon campus. You can watch the full broadcast below.
Now it’s your turn to check out the book for yourself and support one of Seattle’s very own. The Seattle receiver mentioned in a Tweet reply that the book is available in Amazon stores, Barnes & Noble, and Fred Meyer. Buy your copy today.
