Altoona native to be recognized

An Altoona native is being recognized by the Seattle Seahawks.

Dr. Eliot Fagley, an anesthesiologist who leads the Critical Care Unitás COVID-19 response at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, was selected to represent physicians, nurses, patient care techs, therapy experts, pharmacists and their collaborative effort to lead critical care for COVID-19 patients.

Fagley will raise the 12 Flag prior to kickoff on behalf of his entire team of frontline workers, at Sundayás Seahawks vs. Patriots matchup on Sunday Night Football.

Because there will be no fans in the stadium due to COVID-19 precautions, Fagley will be the only “12th man” in attendance.

Fagley, 44, graduated from Altoona Area High School in 1994.

The program honoring front-line workers is sponsored by Walmart.
