The second Sunday practice at Seahawks Training Camp presented by Bing attracted a crowd of 2,850 to Virginia Mason Athletic Center – including one who was wearing a split Marshawn Lynch No. 24 jersey; another whose favorite all-time Seahawk is former linebacker Niko Koutouvides; and a next-generation fan who likes all things Russell Wilson.

Chris Brown

Age: 38

From: Lake Stevens

Fan since: Sixth grade

Favorite current Seahawk: Marshawn Lynch. “He’s just a great back,” said Brown, the one wearing the half-and-half Lynch jersey.

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Steve Largent. “Because that’s the position (wide receiver) I played.”

Favorite moment in franchise history: “I don’t really have one. I like everything about the team.”

Kelly Jardine

Age: 53

From: Gig Harbor

Fan since: 18 years

Favorite current Seahawk: Russell Wilson. “Because he’s a nice guy,” said Jardine, who attended practice with Kyle DuGaue – and both were wearing No. 3 Wilson jersey.

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Niko Koutouvides, a former backup linebacker who led the club in special teams tackles three times (2004, 2006 and 2007). “We have the same birth date (March 25) and he’s Greek. He was adorable.”

Favorite moment in franchise history: “The run,” she said, simply, of Marshawn Lynch’s electrifying 67-yard touchdown to ice the 2010 wild-card playoff win over the defending Super Bowl champion Saints.

Dylan Ing

Age: 9

From: Lacey

Fan since: “Since he can remember,” said his mom, Jennifer.

Favorite current Seahawk: Russell Wilson. “He’s a really good player,” said Ing, who was wearing a Wilson No. 3 jersey and also accompanied by his father, Pouth; and brother, R.J.

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Russell Wilson

Favorite moment in franchise history: “When Russell ran for three touchdowns,” he said of Wilson rushing for three scores in the first half of December’s win over the Bills in Toronto.
