Seahawk Giving Back Where It All Began

BOULDER, Colo. -- From the punting practice to the agility drills, the developmentally disabled participants at Thursday's football camp were eager to learn from NFL players.
The free clinic was held at East Boulder Park and sponsored by Denver-based group Tyler's Kids Outreach, a nonprofit organization for kids created by Tyler Polumbus, offensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks.
Polumbus, 26, played for University of Colorado and even spent two years with the Denver Broncos. He started his organization two years ago and frequently does work with kids in Colorado and Seattle.
Members of Polumbus's family are disabled, and he said he wants to help out in a community that's close to him.
"I'm in a position where I can give back," Polumbus said. "We get more out of it than they do."
