Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse received a celebration honoring his Super achievements with the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday.
Lakewood, Wash. declared April 12 "Jermaine Kearse Day" for their hometown hero and Super Bowl XLVIII champion Kearse, who grew up in Lakewood and played football at Lakes High School before going on to four standout years at the University of Washington. Saturday's festivities were held at Harry E. Lang Stadium, the same field Kearse played on as a Lakes Lancer.
Kearse, who signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Seahawks after the 2012 NFL Draft, recorded 22 catches for 346 yards and four touchdowns last season. He added seven more catches for 134 yards and two touchdowns during Seattle's Super Bowl run, including the go-ahead 35-yard touchdown on a 4th-and-7 play in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship game against the division rival San Francisco 49ers and a pinballing catch-and-run for a score against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
