REPUBLIC, Wash. - In 2013, the seniors at Republic High School were able to get Sarah Palin to come speak at their graduation ceremony, and this year they are setting their sights on Washington's favorite quarterback: Russell Wilson. The Class of 2015 invited the Seahawks' quarterback to speak at their graduation ceremony on June 6, 2015 in the small town of Republic, Washington. 

A post on KHQ's Facebook wall on Wednesday showed a picture of the class in their "12th man best" asking Wilson to come speak during their graduation and "be their 24th man." 

The class has a backup plan thought, should Wilson not be able to attend. They also are inviting Richard Sherman to come too. And if Richard can't make it, they are extending the invitation to any Seahawks player that can attend. Students are sharing the photo all over social media, hoping Wilson, Sherman, or any other player will see it.

Good luck Seniors! Let us know if you get Wilson, Sherman or any other Seahawks to come!
