High School Football America Teams-up with Seattle Seahawks Rookie Golden Tate

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

As I expand the amount of original content for my readers, I've partnered with Seattle Seahawks rookie receiver Golden Tate to help him write his bi-weekly blog that you can check-out at Golden's website

Our first collaboration is entitled How Do I Engage Seattle's 12th Man?

Tate, who left Notre Dame after his junior year, was taken by the Seahawks in the 2nd round (60th overall) of the NFL Draft.

In the coming weeks, I'll be writing about Tate's high school memories.  Born in Hendersonville, Tennessee, he played his high school football at Pope John Paul II High School.

Tate will wear #81 in the NFL, not his familiar #23 that he wore in high school and college.  Speaking of #23 check-out this video I found of Golden from a high school game in 2006.

In the 2007 YouTube video Tate's team was down by 14 points with 7.5 second left in regulation.  What you don't see is Tate scoring a touchdown to cut the lead to 49-42.  What you do see is #23 recovering the ensuing on-side kick and then catching a TD pass with no time left in regulation.  The game went to overtime with Tate helping Pope John Paul II get the victory.
