Recently retired Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been busy in his post-football days. Just a few weeks ago he and some of his football colleagues took a trip to visit the poor country of Haiti to build a elementary school, which was a mission organized by the Seahawks defensive end player Cliff Avril. This was a great team for all the guys who went, and it has given people even more of a reason to show the former Seahawk some respect that he earned while playing in the NFL. Just before he made this journey to Haiti, Lynch also ventured out to Egypt to teach some local kids to play football.
The Oakland, California native was a four sport athletic star during his high school years as he participated in football, track and field, baseball, and wrestling. Lynch ended up attending the University of California in Berkeley where he played for the Golden Bears in football. He entered the 2007 NFL Draft where he was selected as the 12th overall pick by the Buffalo Bills and stayed with the team for three seasons before going to play for Seattle. These days Lynch is most well known for his love of skittles and “Beast Mode” on the field when he gets into his groove for the Seahawks.
Lynch and some of his former NFL pals have taken an adventure out to Haiti to help out the local kids by building a local elementary school. HIs presence there was not only meaningful to the kids and community, but it goes to show that he is still making Seattle proud in his retirement days.
