1. The Seahawks have an award named for Steve Largent, and he was the first-ever recipient of said award! The Steve Largent Award goes to players, coaches or contributors who have the great spirit, dedication, and integrity that Steve Largent always exemplified. Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman have all been recipients of this award in recent years!
