The busiest sector of the Seahawks minicamp machine wasn’t in the coaches’ offices, on the practice fields or in the locker room.
It was in the laundry room.
The equipment staffers were washing and drying practice gear for the players and coaches more than 12 hours per day during the three-day minicamp, with the five commercial-sized washers and dryers almost on continual cycles throughout the day. All told, the staffers would do an estimated 35 loads of laundry per day, with each load weighing about 125 pounds, according to assistant equipment manager Kyle Stillwell.
Add it up, and that’s 4,375 pounds of laundry a day and 13,125 pounds of laundry — nearly seven tons of dirty clothes — over the three-day minicamp.
