Seahawks.com Writer
Good afternoon, 12s. Here’s a look at what’s out there today โ€” Wednesday, May 18 โ€” about your Seattle Seahawks.
As a new writer for the Seattle Seahawks, I wanted to take a little time to tell you about myself and why this opportunity is important to me, and what I plan to bring to the Seattle community and the 12s.
My name is Maliik Obee, and I am a graduate of Morgan State University, a historically black college in Baltimore, MD. As a multimedia journalism major with a focus in sports journalism, it’s my passion to tell stories about the game of football, especially for the National Football League. It brings me joy to find ways to bridge the old with the new; to intertwine our past and our current. That’s why it is integral for me to use this opportunity to inform and reinform the Seattle Seahawks community about the players from H.B.C.U’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) that have come from black colleges. Telling stories like those of 1988 11th-round South Carolina State Cornerback Dwayne Harper or undrafted former Seattle Seahawks All-Pro Linebacker Rufus Porter (Southern University) is integral to both honoring history as well as giving institutions pride.
Former Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson played two short spurts with the team lasting four seasons. But the former Alabama State quarterback remains the last and highest-drafted HBCU quarterback since 2006. Jackson’s last career passing touchdown came for the Seahawks in 2013. Jackson passed in 2020 at the age of 36. Jackson’s story off the field – from being benched at Arkansas to drafted from an HBCU is a story worth telling.
While the sweet science of X’s and O’s means a great deal to me, giving perspective on the road to the league for players and insight on the man under the helmet is equally important.
This is not meant to single out, but to highlight the history of HBCUs and their impact on the Seattle Seahawks franchise.
Myself and a team of graduates from several HBCU’s have created a platform titled Draft HBCU Players, formulating scouting reports and creating high-quality media content to inform the masses of the history and top current stars of historically black college sports.
My mission is to create Seahawks content that everyone can not only digest, but enjoy. I hope to bring fresh ideas for content to highlight Seahawks’ history, legacy and culture on a regular basis.
