NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Legendary Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch joined the latest episode of the Field Gulls podcast. The discussion kicks off with a look back at this highlight moment from one of his Fam1st Family Foundation events:

Marshawn joined the show as part of his current effort with Subway as he looks to help out high school athletes who are impacted by the pandemic. He talks about how the opportunity helps kids with a chance to win a scholarship and maybe even get their highlights noticed by area scouts.

It’s been just over a year now since Lynch last suited up in a Seahawks uniform. After Seattle lost to the Packers and his former teammate at Cal, he explains why he told Aaron Rodgers that, “when I catch him back in the Bay, I’m gonna beat his ass,” and talks about why he gives credit to Rodgers for giving him a chance to “pick up the game of football the way that I have.”

High school football players can submit a video of their best pro moves, craziest catches, hardest tackles and longest throws or kicks at for a chance to be one of 20 winning players. Winners will receive a personalized video from Lynch, an invitation to attend a virtual awards event with Keenan Allen, and a $1,500 scholarship from Subway.
