Seahawks to honor Marysville-Pilchuck High School by wearing "MP" helmet decals Sunday vs. Oakland


From the Seahawks, this is above an example of the decals their players will be wearing for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders to honor Marysville-Pilchuck High School. Coaches, staff and inactive players will wear "MP" lapel pins on the sideline.

This morning, just before the Seahawks took the field for practice here in Renton, marked one week to the hour since a freshman at Marysville-Pilchuck began shooting five classmates in the school's cafeteria, killing two of them and then himself. Three students remain hospitalized.

The Marysville-Pilchuck football team is playing the Wesco 3A championship game tonight. The team practiced on Tuesday at the Seahawks' headquarters here in Renton, as I wrote about on Wednesday.

The Seahawks have announced that fans attending Sunday's game are invited to sign oversize cards, which will be staged in Touchdown City and at the north end of CenturyLink Field's west plaza, to support Marysville-Pilchuck and the entire community north of Everett. The teams says the cards will be delivered to MPHS next week. The school has been closed this week but is scheduled to reopen for classes on Monday.

As happened last weekend before the Seahawks' game at Carolina, a moment of silence will take place before Sunday's National Anthem at CenturyLink Field.
