SEATTLE —

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson stopped by a Seattle high school Friday to praise students for taking a lifesaving pledge.

Roosevelt High School was named the winner of the “Save It Seattle” contest, in which more than 800 students had to take a pledge not to text and drive.

“I think that it’s an important thing, and I’m proud of Roosevelt High School for stepping up, and taking on that challenge,” Wilson said.

The effort also extends to getting people in the community to pledge not to text and drive.
