A Visit with Efren Herrera
A popular personality during his four seasons (1978-1981) as a kicker with the Seahawks, Herrera is probably best remembered for teaming up with QB/placeholder Jim Zorn on a number of memorable fake field goals.

Legends Check in on “96 CHECK”
Seahawks Legend Walter Jones introduces the "96 CHECK" initiative for all his fellow NFL Legends. The idea is to have NFL players and families check on one player that they have not talked to in a while on September 6 (9/6) each year, "to make sure all is good." "96 CHECK" is Walter's way of paying homage to his late friend and teammate, Cortez Kennedy, who wore #96, while helping NFL players everywhere who may have gotten lost in the cracks. Cortez would always call Walter for no other reason than to "check on him." The initiative starts today, August 23, which is Kennedy's birthday; and it's a good time of the year right now - just before ...

And what was in store for the kids on Day 1 was amazing: nine Wish kids and their family members arrived at the stadium on a Seahawks bus. The kids and their families were escorted to their “locker room” and were greeted by stadium staff holding signs, waving pom poms and cheering for them; and each Wish kid had their own locker full of Seahawks memorabilia, including their ...
