HERE IS WHAT MUEMA POSTED ON INSTAGRAM EARLY THIS MORNING: Okay here’s is the Seahawks #8 story. I was given #8 the first time playing football started to love this number. I was wondering if I could be 8 in the NFL & he said go to the store to decorate your living space. Went to the Christian store lady says when did that get in & didn’t let her grab it & said it was for me. Later, I ditch the combine to go to the saturday service & speaker was GM for Seahawks. I was honored by the Rev for being the 1st out of 8 yrs to go to this service, I cried If I would of performed that day I would of missed that meaningful #8. Glory be to God. Keep calling them coincidences if you want to.
THURSDAY’S STORY: The unusual behavior of former Charter Oak High School running back Adam Muema, who left the NFL Scouting Combine last weekend without working out after saying he was “following God” has become rapidly more concerning to his former high school coaches and longtime friends.
Muema, who was this newspaper’s Player of the Year in 2009 after a stellar prep career, starred in college at San Diego St. before declaring for the NFL Draft last fall as a junior.
Nobody has seen Muema since last weekend when he left Indianapolis, Ind. where the NFL Scouting Combine is held. He said that by not participating in the workouts he would realize his dream of playing for the Seattle Seahawks. He also said God told him to sit down and enjoy the peace.
