While the 12th man will be firmly focused on what is happening on the gridiron of MetLife Stadium this Sunday, many young Seahawk fans in Mountlake Terrace will be hoping that the television broadcast of Super Bowl XLVIII include many looks at the action on the sidelines.
Students of Mountlake Terrace Elementary will be looking for the school’s physical education teacher, Carli Brockman, who is a member of the Sea Gals, the Seahawk cheer squad.
“We have Super Bowl fever at Mountlake Terrace Elementary,” exclaimed the school’s office manager Cathy Fiorillo. “We are proud of you, Mrs. Brockman.”
Brockman and the rest of the 33-member Sea Gals cheer team were scheduled to leave Seattle Thursday morning for the New York/New Jersey area, where the squad will make a number of appearances prior to the game on Sunday.
The excitement of having one of their own at the Super Bowl only adds to the celebratory mood at MLT Elementary this week. “Friday, students and staff are welcome to wear their favorite Seahawk gear if they have it, or blue and/or green,” Fiorillo said.
