According to a January 30 article in NESN; Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch broke his silence with the media. Tuesday during Super Bowl week is typically known as media day; a day when players are required to talk to the media. Lynch’s media day lasted only 6 minutes.
During his second day of interviews, Lynch opened up and shared with reporters the reasons for his love of skittles. Lynch’s foundation; Fam First, will receive money from Skittles ($10,000) for every touchdown that he scores in the Super bowl.
Lynch’s story is one that should be shared. According to Wikipedia; Lynch grew up in one of the toughest parts of California. He and his siblings rarely saw their father in his formative years. Even a $50,000 fine (for not speaking to the media) and an arrest (for DUI) could not prevent Lynch from becoming a popular and successful NFL player.
One Christian called Lynch’s story an example of what God can do.
“I’m not celebrating his run-ins with the law. Lynch doesn’t talk to the media because he is humble. He survived a tough upbringing, and has become living proof that with God; all things are possible. There are so many young men and women who need to hear his story.”
This is Lynch’s first Super Bowl.
