Members of the Seattle Seahawks were running, jumping, throwing, and catching with Spokane-area kids Friday as part of the NFL's Play-60 Initiative, a program which encourages children to exercise for at least an hour a day.
Participants were able to play in their own mini-combine, meet blitz, the Seattle Seahawks mascot, meet players and coaches, learn to cheer at the Junior Sea Gals Clinic, and even see the Lombardi trophy! As much fun as the kids were having, hopefully they didn't play too rough with the players.
"I'm excited man, I just hope the kids understand that I gotta save my legs, because I start camp in a week," said Seahawk running back Robert Turbin. "Make sure I save my legs today so I don't spend too much energy, cause I gotta start training camp next week, okay? alright."
Play-60 said their mission is to make the next generation of youth as active and healthy as possible. With that in mind, this event may have inspired a few kids to want to be Seahawks themselves someday.
