Rainn Wilson to raise the 12th Man Flag

One of the most time honored traditions for the Seattle Seahawks has been the ceremonial raising of the 12th Man Flag in the south endzone. An honor usually given to former players, veterans, prominent Seattle athletes or pop culture figures.

On Sunday afternoon against the Jets, the latter will be doing so when Seattle’s own Rainn Wilson will be doing the honors. An actor, producer, writer and comedian, Rainn Wilson is a born and raised Seattle local, and a known Seattle sports super fan.

Wilson is easily best known for his role as Dwight K. Schrute in the popular comedy series “The Office” but has been active in a number of projects in both film, television, and his own media company.

Rainn Wilson is a beloved figure in the Seattle community, and will surely receive a warm response from the 12th Man as he is truly one of their own.
