Look who’s coming to camp

The last of the 13 practices at Bing training camp that were open to the public attracted a crowd of 1,325 for this morning’s session – pushing the total for camp to 20,841. Here are three of the faces that were in today’s crowd:

Jordan Papatu

Favorite current player: Marshawn Lynch

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Lofa Tatupu (He was wearing a Tatupu No. 51 jersey)

Favorite Seahawks moment: “Spending time with ‘Deuce’ (Pro Bowl free safety Earl Thomas) the last time I came to practice. He gave me this hat.”

Debbie Hindman

Favorite current player: K.J. Wright (she was holding a sign that praised Wright)

Favorite all-time Seahawk: “It could be Rian Lindell (she was wearing a No. 9 Lindell jersey). But I think it might be Dan Doornink. Dr. Dan, I think so.”

Favorite Seahawks moment: “The NFC Championship game, 2005. I actually watch that game once a year, because I don’t remember it. Because I was getting Super Bowl tickets, and I had somebody doing tickets, somebody was doing airfare, somebody was doing hotels. While the game was going on, and I’m making phone calls. They’re like, ‘Can we go ahead and do this?’ I’m like, ‘Let’s just wait until the third quarter, until it’s a guarantee; let’s just wait until the fourth quarter, so I’m not like cocky.’ So I only remember parts of the game because of that.”

Frances Monahan

Age: 12

From: Edmonds

Fan since: “They went to the Super Bowl in 2005.”

Favorite current player: Marshawn Lynch

Favorite all-time Seahawk:  Marshawn Lynch

Favorite Seahawks moment: “When Lynch broke his long run (67 yards) in the playoff game against the Saints.”
