ESPN To Air Live "SportsCenter" Special Focusing On Seahawks Training Camp

ESPN will have several personalities report from Seahawks camp

ESPN cameras will focus on the Seahawks' "hyper-competitive personalities between the lines" during the net's "SportsCenter Special: Seahawks Training Camp," which will air live for nearly two hours next Tuesday, according to Nate Davis of USA TODAY. The new show will coincide with the club's "first padded practice of the summer." ESPN "MNF" Producer Jay Rothman said, "Hopefully we can break new ground and give the fans some fresh and unique access they haven't seen before." Rothman "is planning a fast-paced, fluid program which mirrors the Seahawks' signature up-tempo practice sessions." ESPN's Jon Gruden, Darren Woodson, John Clayton and Kenny Mayne will be "deployed around the Seahawks' picturesque" Virginia Mason Athletic Center. The Seahawks have "provided a script of the nine-period practice to ESPN, allowing the network to dissect everything from individual drills to 9-on-7 periods to red-zone showdowns between offense and defense." But if the Pacific Northwest's "infamous rain intervenes, everything will be filmed on the team's indoor field." Also, there will be "no SportsCenter desk on site." Mayne and Clayton, both longtime residents of Washington state, will "float around the field and likely interact with the 3,000 '12th Man' fans expected to be in attendance." Seahawks GM John Schneider will "grant an interview" to Clayton (USA TODAY, 7/23).
