Seattle Seahawks starter visits Meridian elementary school

NFL Fuel Up to Play 60 assembly: Justin Britt of the Seattle Seahawks visited Ponderosa Elementary School in Meridian on Friday.

More than 600 students, several dairy farmers, and staff from United Dairymen of Idaho and the Idaho Dairy Council attended the assembly, which promoted healthy nutrition and physical activity. Ponderosa was awarded the assembly after participating in a #LoveOfPlay Sweepstakes video contest.

Britt, a rookie right tackle and second-round draft pick out of Missouri, started all 16 regular season games for the Seahawks last season after winning the job in training camp.
