Re: Akeem Aguste
Thanks for the heads up. Found a short article about AA from early this month that complimented him
Akeem Auguste shows up to work each day to a locker that features Doug Baldwin to his right, and Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas a few steps to his left. Yet Auguste, a member of the Seahawks practice squad, would undoubtedly pass unnoticed through a crowd of even the most die-hard Seahawks fans.
As the rest of the practice squad, Auguste takes part in every workout and meeting during the week, then spends game days on the sideline out of uniform and out of sight and out of mind of the 68,000-plus spectators who cram CenturyLink Field on Sundays.
What matters to Auguste, though, is that he gains the notice of his teammates and coaches.
He has accomplished that, which became apparent during a recent interview. While Auguste talked to a reporter after a recent practice, Baldwin and quarterback Russell Wilson each interrupted to throw in a few compliments.
Thats a good football player right there, man, Wilson said. He (intercepted) me in practice the other day.
Such words, Auguste hopes, foreshadow getting what he really wants a chance to join Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks on the field someday.
