Statement on the Passing of Seahawks Owner Paul Allen


"The NFL lost an incredible leader with the passing of Paul Allen. Under Paul's guidance, the Seahawks became an organization that others wanted to emulate. He advocated for making the game safer for players, brought new fan traditions to home games and focused on ways to strengthen this league. While Paul's contributions to professional sports were significant, they pale in comparison to his philanthropic endeavors and profound generosity. Paul was passionate about using his platform and his resources to create positive change and dedicated his life to protecting and improving the world in which we live. He leaves a lasting legacy through the countless non-profits and research projects that will continue to thrive as a result of his kindness. Our prayers are with the entire Allen family and the Seattle Seahawks organization." - Mark & Zygi Wilf
