Former Jenks football star Tyler Ott now finds himself in the NFL playing for the Seattle Seahawks, but the road to where he is wasn't always easy.

Ott was born premature and was held in the NICU for 10 days. He went on to recover and have a successful career at both Jenks and Harvard, leading to multiple chances in the NFL. The Seahawks longsnapper partners with March of Dimes, an organization that supports mothers and newborn babies. During COVID-19, the organization has started a "Step-Up" campaign, where you create teams, go on walks, count your steps and turn those steps into donations.

Tyler's team is 'NICU2NFL' and you can find more information on how to join and donate at
