  • Ronda Rousey Says She'd be Willing to Have Wounded Indiana Teacher Jason Seaman Walk Her to the Ring

IN middle school teacher Jason Seaman has been released from a hospital after suffering gunshot wounds as he tackled a shooter on Friday, according to Rep. Susan Brooks, R-Ind.

"I can't say enough how proud of Ella I am and how we all should be", said Seaman.

A science teacher who was shot while tackling an armed student at a suburban Indianapolis middle school spoke about the incident for the first time. While Seaman was shot three times, he managed to tackle and disarm the shooter to save his students from further harm. The 29-year-old former college football player was released from a hospital Saturday.

The 25-year old finished the campaign with 4 goals and 7 assists in 37 appearances across all competitions. If he were to arrive at Manchester United he would add to manager Jose Mourinho's options.

Science teacher Jason Seaman tackled the armed student and is being credited with stopping the shooting. "Jason Seaman selflessly put himself in harm's way to protect his students and it is because of his heroic actions more students were not hurt", she said, according to a release. He didn't disclose any details and declined to take questions from reporters.

"On Friday, we endured a horrific and senseless tragedy that had a significant impact on this community", said Dr. Beth Niedermeyer, Superintendent Noblesville Schools. Before becoming a high school teacher and coach, Seaman played for the Southern Illinois football team.

The attack came a week after a shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers, and months after the high school attack that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida.

Fortunately, Twitter users are keeping Jason Seaman in mind-as an example of the kind of courage, honor, and action in an era of inaction that we should all collectively strive toward.

On Friday, a male student reportedly brought two handguns into Noblesville West Middle School and started firing. I deeply care for my students and their well-being.
