Bryce Fisher & the Golden Football
Former Seahawks DE Bryce Fisher presented a golden football on Wednesday, January 27, to his high school, Seattle Prep, as part of the NFL’s Super Bowl Honor Roll campaign. The initiative recognizes schools that contributed to the Super Bowl’s 50-year history with the presentation of a commemorative golden football.
The golden footballs are being presented to high schools across the country for every player or head coach “who graduated from their school and was on an active Super Bowl roster.” Bryce was a member of the Seahawks’ Super Bowl XL team.
“The thing about playing in the Super Bowl is that, for one moment in time, you’ve got a chance for 70 million people around the world focused on whether you can win for that three hours,” said Fisher during his presentation. “Most of the lessons I learned around pursuing excellence, around perseverance, were learned as an athlete. Seattle Prep was foundational in terms of my experience and my learning growing up.”
Fisher was a was a three-year letterman in football at Seattle Prep, and as a senior he was an All-League selection and was named the League’s Lineman of the Year.
