Wide Receiver Ricardo Lockette To Raise 12 Flag Atop The Space Needle On Seahawks Blue Friday

Less than 10 weeks after undergoing surgery to stabilize ligament damage in his neck, Ricardo Lockette will head to the top of Seattle’s most iconic landmark to support his team on its playoff run.

The wide receiver will raise the 12 Flag over the Space Needle on Jan. 15 to help kick off another Blue Friday in the Pacific Northwest, as the Seahawks ready for this weekend’s divisional round playoff game against the Panthers in Carolina.

The 12 Flag raising gets underway at 9 a.m. roughly 570 feet above ground, where former Seahawks quarterback and Ring of Honor member Jim Zorn performed the honors heading into this past weekend’s wild-card road game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lockette, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this season following a hit he took in Seattle’s Nov. 1 road win over the Dallas Cowboys, made a surprise visit to CenturyLink Field two weeks after his season-ending operation. While there, Lockette helped pump up the crowd before the Seahawks’ game against the division rival Arizona Cardinals.

The 600 square-foot 12 Flag that Lockette will raise will remain up through Sunday, Jan. 17, with the Seahawks kicking off against Carolina at 10:05 Sunday morning.
