Seahawks' Blowout Win Against Arizona Featured Co-Captain From University Place

Jay Roberts, an eighth-grader at Curtis Junior High, received the honor after participating in an NFL-sponsored health and wellness program, his father tells Patch.

The Seattle Seahawks' record-breaking trouncing of the Arizona Cardinals last week allowed fans to kick back, relax and watch the points pile up.

But for one University Place student, last Sunday's game was exciting for reasons that had nothing to do with the 58-0 outcome. Well, mostly.

Jay Roberts, an eighth-grader at Curtis Junior High, served as the honorary co-captain of the game. He got the honor, dad Greg Roberts tells Patch, after he participated in an NFL-sponosored health and wellness program offered by Virginia Mason Hospital.

"Jay participated in the opening coin toss and received club-level setting to view the game," Greg Roberts wrote.

He added that in addition to following the Hawks, Jay plays for the Curtis Junior High eighth-grade football team, and he is serving as Senior Patrol Leader for BSA Troop 438.

How great is that? Congratulations, Jay. You deserved every bit of that experience.
