Friday Round-Up: Kam Chancellor on Legion of Boom - "That bond just got real strong and real tight"
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, July 18 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Kam Chancellor Talks L.O.B.
Strong safety Kam Chancellor recently sat down for an exclusive one-on-one interview with Q13 FOX Sports Director Aaron Levine. In part one, which aired on the station last night, Chancellor talks about his No. 65 ranking on NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2014, how he'll stay motivated coming off a Super Bowl win, and reminisces about the start of the "Legion of Boom."
"We all started out here as rookies and didn't know what we were doing, little snotty-nosed rookies coming out here not knowing what we were doing," Chancellor said of he and his L.O.B. teammates. "But we knew that we had a passion for football and we had a passion for camaraderie. That bond just got real strong and real tight. That's what allows us to be like that on the field, just because of the time we spend off the field."
