Seahawks to collaborate with 17-year-old to make documentary series

Canada’s Alphonso Davies, the 17-year-old who attracted widespread acclaim for his performances for the West German national team, has made his own way in the football world. And now, to honour his importance to the game in Canada, that country’s National Football League team, the Seattle Seahawks, have agreed to collaborate with him on a new documentary series.

Although just two months old, Davies has already amassed a huge number of followers and broken into the NFL via the draft, according to the Bleacher Report, with his undrafted potential also proving attractive to the franchises looking to add to their rosters. The streaming service NFT (North American Premiere) is to show all 11 episodes in future with Davies narrating them and playacting, of course, having the whole film take place at one of his home games. To accompany the series, Davies is to join the Seahawks in training.

His representatives have launched a campaign on the PayPal site crowdfunding platform, from where much of the series’ funds will be sourced, to raise $50,000 before the start of the season.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told Bleacher Report: “Every year when you look at the league, we look at people from all over the world. We just kind of narrow it down to those whose names we know. He got into our meeting and went, ‘We’ve got to do this’ and I said, ‘Absolutely. We’ve got to give him a chance.’”
