It’s safe to say that Seahawks offensive guard John Moffitt already embraced all of these qualities prior to throwing on a kilt to benefit Ronald McDonald House, but the new garb surely enhances those attributes for the third-year pro.
Moffitt is one of 18 individuals to don the duds for the “Men In Kilts” campaign aimed at raising money for Ronald McDonald House charities of Western Washington and Alaska, who support seriously ill children and their families. For just $25, individuals can cast a vote for their favorite kilt-wearer, with the proceeds from the vote sponsoring one night of housing for a family at the Ronald McDonald House.
Some of the Seattle sports names Moffitt is up against include the pairing of former Seattle Sounders FC forward Roger Levesque and current Sounders FC midfielder Brad Evans, the 950 KJR AM trio of Jerry Brewer, Ian Furness and Jason Puckett, and former player turned broadcaster Dave Henderson of the Seattle Mariners.
Voting opens today and runs through April 12, when the top vote-getter will be crowned “King of the Kilt”.
