It was a challenging football season for the Seahawks. One freshman, however, came to the team unusually well prepared to face life's hurdles. In a sequence of events that bears striking similarities to the story of Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher, portrayed in the book and feature film The Blind Side, Josh Talbott (an African American) was adopted as an older teenager by a white family. Josh and his brother, Austin, played football together at Jupiter Christian High School in Jupiter, Florida.
