Seattle Seahawks players are visiting elementary schools in Shoreline this fall as part of the National Football League's "Play 60" youth health and fitness campaign. The program is focused on making the next generation of kids more active and healthy by encouraging them to engage in physical activity for at least 60 minutes a day.

Offensive lineman Breno Giacomini and Tyler Polumbus visited Echo Lake Elementary on Tuesday, October 25 and encouraged the students at an assembly to work hard in school, respect their teachers and each other, and to eat healthy and get plenty of exercise. Giacomini grew up in the Boston area and attended the University of Louisville. Polumbus grew up in the Denver area and played college football at Colorado.

After the assembly, the players joined fifth and sixth graders for games on the playground and the school's playfield.

Seahawks players are also visiting Ridgecrest and Syre Elementary Schools this fall.

Participating students at the schools received Seahawks "Play 60" t-shirts and autographed posters for their classrooms.
