Von Reichbauer joins champion Seahawks at White House ceremony
For the Reporter
Players from the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and invited guests celebrated their Super Bowl XLVIII victory over the Denver Broncos today with President Barack Obama at the White House.
"I am honored to join the world champions at the White House today to celebrate their achievement on the field," said King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer, who used private funds to travel to the ceremony.
"This is the culmination of a great achievement. I am proud of the team John Schneider and Pete Carroll assembled that brought such pride to King County and the greater Pacific Northwest," von Reichbauer said. "I've never seen a region so unified under the banner of the 12th Man — blue collar, white collar or no collar, they're all in."
