Seattle Seahawks linemen tour town in western Alaska
Two Seattle Seahawks toured a town in western Alaska to promote health and wellness and learn about Yup’ik culture.
KYUK-AM reports offensive linemen Joey Hunt and Jordan Roos were in Bethel for about nine hours Wednesday, stopping at the hospital, a youth center and the Lulu Herron Elders Home.
The NFL players autographed posters and posed in photos with Bethel’s elders. Elder Mary Nanuwak presented the linemen with a hand-knit hat and scarf and a bag of fry bread.
The Seattle players also took a boat across the water to visit families’ fish camps outside of town.
Roos says the experience was “awesome and the fish smelled amazing.”
Hunt says he was excited to see a piece of “true Alaska.”
