This past week Jermaine Kearse made an appearance at the Capitol Campus Tour in Olympia, Washington. The event was dedicated to gold star families, which are families who have lost family members to service. With Kearse in attendance, it allowed him to sign autographs for gold star kids in a place he calls home himself. With Kearse being the son of a military family, the event hit home particular with Kearse and stated “I want them to know they’re not alone, I have their back.” The sponsors of this event hope that Washington’s gold star event will get on par with some of the others around the country.
Jermaine Kearse is a Lakewood, Washington native and played his college football at the University of Washington. During Kearse’s time with the Washington Huskies, Kearse had 180 catches, 2500 yards receiving, and 27 touchdowns. After having a stellar career with the Huskies, Kearse was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2012. While with the Seattle Seahawks, Kearse has already had a particularly strong career with over 1500 yards and 10 touchdowns. Although not eye popping numbers, where Kearse stands out is in the biggest games as he did in both Super Bowls the Seahawks have been in, winning the big game in 2013 and losing in the Super Bowl in 2014. In the postseason alone, Kearse has over 450 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging a whopping 18 yards a catch. This last season, Kearse really emerged as a threat for opposing defenses and is looking poised to breakout next season as one of the better receivers in the NFL.
