Legends & Seahawks Make A Wish Day
Seahawks Legends were front and center for Seahawks Make-A-Wish Day (actually Days) held on August 16-18. On hand for Day 1 activities at CenturyLink Field were: Nesby Glasgow, Ronnie Harris, Paul Johns, Norm Johnson, David Kirtman, Dave Krieg, Paul Moyer and Jim Zorn. 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 ...
Kenny Easley’s Enshrinement Speech
Well, good evening! To all the family and friends and lovers of football all across America, and the world, thank you for being here today. I'd like to start by sharing a passage from the Bible that I've leaned on and counted on, and trusted with all certainty through the years. And that would be Philippians 4 and 6, and it says: be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication. With thanks giving, let your request be known to God. I was first nominated for the Hall in 1997; twenty years later, be anxious for nothing. The Hall of Fame was dropped on the shoulders of Kenny Easley like a pair of shoulder pads. Some folks ...

Dave Krieg: The Man from Milton
By Scott M. Johnson With appropriate timing, the first chapter of one of the most legendary stories in NFL history was being written a few months after a similar tale had come to an end. In the fall of 1999, unknown quarterback and one-time grocery bagger Kurt Warner overcame stops at Division I-AA Northern Iowa University, the Arena League and NFL Europe to become the starting quarterback of the St. Louis Rams. Over the ensuing months, he would become as unlikely a Most Valuable Player as the NFL would ever anoint. Warner was the stuff of Disney movies, the kind of character F. Scott Fitzgerald might create on the pages of a book. His was the most ...
Dave Krieg Enshrined into the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame
Former Seahawks quarterback Dave Krieg had Milton College back in the spotlight when he was recently enshrined into the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame. The enshrinement ceremony was held on March 26 in Madison, Wisconsin. At Milton, an obscure and now-defunct small private college in Milton, Wisconsin, Krieg began as the 7th-string quarterback for his school's NAIA team. He had played high school at D.C. Everest where there was a power-I offense, which meant there were three running backs in the backfield, leaving room for only one wide receiver. Which also meant he didn’t have an opportunity to ...
