Shawn Springs – Making a Windpact
Shawn Springs delivered his share of hits over 7 seasons as a Seahawks cornerback, and he took a few hits as well.

He was knocked cold for 10 minutes, and when he regained consciousness he had no memory of the hit. His mind was foggy for two weeks, and he sat out the following game.
Seven years after that hit, Springs founded Windpact, a company solely focused on helmet impact protection. The company’s aim is to mitigate linear ...

The Hall of Fame for Dave Dickenson
Although he never took a regular season snap while spending time with four NFL teams, including the Seahawks, Dave Dickenson had certainly racked up the accolades for his earlier achievements in the college ranks.
