The Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch will be featured on ESPN’s weekly “E:60″ program on Tuesday night at 4 p.m. PDT.
The news-magazine program analyzes the stories behind various sports and the athletes who play them.
Lynch’s “E:60″ will focus on his life — from his difficult childhood in Oakland, Calif., to mistakes he made early in his NFL career, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
While his life was never an easy one, he has risen to stardom in the NFL as a vital piece on one of the best football teams in the NFL.
This season, he has rushed for 538 yards and six touchdowns, a big reason why the Seahawks have the second-most rushing yards per game in the league.
In his eight-year career, Lynch has compiled over 6,700 yards and 52 touchdowns.
But his success in the NFL did not come without a complicated past, which Lynch will discuss in the “E:60″.
In a preview of the episode, Lynch spoke a little of his difficult upbringing.
When asked if he had anything to say to critics who call him a “thug”, Lynch responded:
“I would like to see them…being racially profiled growing up and sometimes not even having nothing to eat.”
