Seattle Seahawks rookie Aaron Curry will have his jersey retired at E.E. Smith High School in Fayetteville, NC, where he played outside linebacker. The ceremony will take place on Friday.
Curry earned the conference defensive player of the year his senior year, and also was named to the All-Conference and All-Region team after finishing with 123 tackles in his final season at E. E. Smith.
Curry also was selected to play in the North Carolina-South Carolina Shrine Bowl as a tight end.
“I am honored to have my jersey retired,” said Curry in a prepared statement. “It serves as proof that hard work pays off. More importantly, this gives me an opportunity to get the community involved in helping E.E. Smith find success both academically and athletically.”
