Legends & American Flag Football
Several Seahawks Legends will be on the football field this week with eyes on a $1 million dollar prize.
The Ultimate Final of the American Flag Football League features QB Seneca Wallace’s Godspeed team against the Fighting Cancer team on Thursday, July 19, at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas. The game begins at 5:00 pm PT on the NFL Network.
Two more Seahawks Legends join Wallace on the Godspeed team: RB Justin Forsett and DB Josh Wilson. Wallace and Wilson were Seahawks teammates in the 2007-2009 seasons, and Forsett was teammates with Wallace and Wilson in the 2008-2009 Seahawks seasons.
Godspeed advanced to the Ultimate Final with a 28 to 12 win over Chad Johnson’s Ocho squad on July 14. Wallace threw for 316 yards and four touchdowns, including three in the first half, to lead Godspeed. He connected with ex-Lions running back Jahvid Best (3 receptions for 54 yards) for two scores and closed out the first half with a completion to Jason Avant (8 receptions for 116 yards) in the back of the end zone. Wallace threw his fourth and final touchdown pass of the afternoon to former Tennessee Titans wideout Lavelle Hawkins (9 receptions for 88 yards), and he earned LG Player of the Game honors for his efforts.
Team Ocho also happened to feature three Seahawks legends: RB Fred Jackson, QB Jerrod Johnson, and DB Dion Bailey. Jackson played his final NFL season with the Seahawks in 2015; Johnson was on the Seahawks roster for less than two months in the 2013 off-season; and Bailey played two games with the Seahawks as a short-time teammate with Jackson in the 2015 Seahawks season.
