SEATTLE – Priorities, right?

A 19-year-old Seahawks fan in Virginia saved her dad, who was pinned under a truck in a burning garage – then ran back in to save her Russell Wilson Fathead.

The Seahawks’ quarterback found out about it and posted a video messaged to Charlotte Heffelmire on Twitter on Wednesday after seeing the girl’s story on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I saw that you went in in a burning fire, saved the Russell Wilson Fathead – and not to mention your dad,” Wilson said. “You’re a legend. A hero. Go Hawks.”

The Seahawks sent Heffelmire a gift basket of gear and four tickets to a home game next season.

Heffelmire is a student at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
