Members of the Seattle Seahawks and a reality TV star scored a touchdown on Haida Gwaii over the weekend.
Seahawks tight end Luke Willson hosted a free youth football camp in Skidegate along with teammate Jimmy Graham and Captain Keith Colburn of Deadliest Catch.
Willson, on his third trip to Haida Gwaii, says it’s the kids that keep him coming back.
For the Seahawks’ Jimmy Graham, it was his first time visiting Haida Gwaii, but probably not his last.
The football camp was sponsored in part by Haico. Marketing coordinator Samantha Rullin says the visit by the athletes is a big deal because kids on Haida Gwaii wouldn’t normally get to attend similar events on the islands.
