Wednesday Round-Up: Tre Flowers Visits York Elementary For Fuel Up To Play 60 Assembly

Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers partners with Washington Dairy Council for a Fuel Up to Play 60 Assembly at York Elementary School in Vancouver, Washington.


Good morning, 12s.

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

Flowers Promotes Healthy Living

This headline may look somewhat familiar to you as Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers has visited a handful of schools across the Pacific Northwest region, partnering with Washington Dairy Council. The latest stop on their tour, York Elementary School in Vancouver, Washington.

Flowers spent the afternoon at York Elementary, accompanied by Seahawks Dancer Kylie, Blue Thunder, Seahawks staff, and members of the Washington Dairy Council. The school was awarded the visit as a result of their outstanding participation in the national Fuel Up to Play 60 program. The program was founded by the National Dairy Council and the National Football League in collaboration with the USDA.

Seahawks Dancer Kylie stood on stage hosting a Q&A with Flowers, as he shared stories of his journey to the NFL and talked about how eating a healthy breakfast is important and can fuel you as you grow up. The duo then helped lead a touchdown dance contest with music, and as you can imagine, the kids had a great time with that. To cap it off, Flowers and Kylie presented a large 12 Flag to the school that was signed by both of them.

Flowers continues to be the 'go-to-guy' for Fuel Up to Play 60 visits, as he visited a local high school in Seatac, Washington back in February, and two elementary schools in May. He mentioned at the Idaho elementary school that he never had anything like this growing up and he wants to give to the people who support him.
