Former Lakes and UW Standout Jermaine Kearse Leaps, Grabs 37-Yard Pass In Seahawks Win

Kearse, a 6-foot-1, 209-pound receiver fighting for a spot on the roster, skied for the pass from Russell Wilson to bring Seattle inside Denver's 10-yard line.

DENVER-Lakewood's Jermaine Kearse size and jumping ability might get him a spot on the Seattle Seahawks roster this season.

The Lakes High product and unrestricted free agent from the University of Washington - who's fighting to make his way onto the Seahawks' receiver corps - hauled in a beautifully thrown, 37-yard pass down the middle of the field from Russell Wilson at the 5:38 mark in the fourth quarter Saturday in Denver.

The Seahawks beat the Broncos, 30-10, which in preseason doesn't mean all that much. More importantly for Kearse, Coach Pete Carroll is seeing how the former Lancer can be a threat this season.

In 2007-08, Jermaine Kearse wasn't considered the best athlete at Lakes High School; Kavario Middleton was considered the best athlete at Lakes. At U of W, again, Kearse was second best to Middleton. Within five years, attitude, discipline, fortitude and heart surpassed potential. In 2012, Jermaine Kearse is disciplined, focused and making plays for the Seattle Seahawks. You'll always be the best with the right attitude.

Well said, Ken. That bodes well for Jermaine, especially with a coach like Carroll, who is all about competition and not playing favorites.

If Kavario Middleton wants to play professional football, with the right attitude, he'd be an exceptional player in the CFL. After 2 or 3 seasons, in the CFL, I think you'd find Kavario competing for a NFL position 'cause his exceptional athleticism is undeniable.
