The Warner Boys

Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curt’s retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys. Now, after years of silence, the Warners share ...

Seahawks Legends on Your Bookshelf

Books by former pro athletes certainly make for interesting reading, featuring behind the scenes stories from the lockerroom, motivational forces while growing up, life in the spotlight, and so on. The category of Seahawks Legends in print features quite a few offerings from over the years, including players, coaches, and even a couple of team owners. Some of these books are out of print, so your best bet to track down a copy would be online sources like Amazon and ebay. And a visit to a used bookstore or two could also yield some of these titles.

A Different Kind of Miracle

Curt Warner dodged the questions for years. How come we never see you? Is something wrong? People want answers when someone such as Warner, a famed and beloved Seattle Seahawks star, withdraws from the public eye for more than 20 years. Warner and his wife, Ana, never knew what to tell people. If they detailed the around-the-clock challenges of raising their twin autistic sons, people might think they were complaining, or were ungrateful for lives that included so many gifts. They certainly didn’t want to give that impression. “People would asked me why I didn’t do things in public or make appearance...

Curt Warner: From Penn St. to the College Football Hall of Fame

Fran Ganter wasn’t sure what to make of the running back from little Pineville High School in West Virginia. Sure, the film clips were impressive and the statistics were eye-popping. But was Curt Warner all that? Or was the competition just weak? “We didn’t have him for three days and we knew he was special,” Ganter said. Three decades later, Warner’s stellar run for Penn State — a school-record 3,398 yards over four seasons — is again receiving special recognition. Warner, who lives in Camas, WA, and owns Curt Warner Chevrolet in Vancouver, is a member of the 2009 class of inductees into the College Football Hall of Fame. He ...
