Bobby Wagner launches #TackleEverything initiative, will bring 9 students to Silicon Valley

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

Every Wednesday, Seattle Seahawks linebacker and future Hall of Famer Bobby Wagner begins his press conference by talking about a charity or company he wishes to promote.

This season, he has tackled everything from Baby Keem’s album The Melodic Blue, to women’s charities, to business advice, and even his distaste for mayonnaise. This week, Wagner announced his next venture, the #TackleEverything initiative.

Wagner has long been interested in business, and seems destined to continue a career in the space once his playing days are over. He said his idea for this trip was inspired by a trip he took to the area a few years back, where he had the opportunity to meet with business and venture capital leaders.

Wagner is gearing the trip towards high school and college-aged students, although he did note that middle school “geniuses” would be eligible as well. As Michael-Shawn Dugar explained in the tweet above, all you or a loved one needs to do to apply is figure out how to explain your interest in the trip in 280 characters and tag Bobby using #TackleEverything.
