Catching up with: Paul Skansi

Posted Dec 4, 2011

Paul Skansi, a five-sport letterman at Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor and former all-time leading receiver at the University of Washington, played in 100 games for the Seahawks from 1984-91.

What he did: Skansi, a five-sport letterman at Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor and former all-time leading receiver at the University of Washington, played in 100 games for the Seahawks from 1984-91. He caught 166 passes for 1,950 yards and 10 touchdowns – none bigger than his leaping grab of a 25-yard TD pass from Dave Krieg as time expired to tie the score in a 17-16 victory against the Chiefs in Kansas City in 1990.

Quick hits

If I could have dinner with anyone – living or dead – it would be: “Jesus Christ.”

Must-see TV: “I don’t watch a lot of TV. Mainly sports. But if I were to watch one show, ‘Deadliest Catch.’ ”

The best book I’ve ever read: “There are a lot. But I just finished one the other day that was pretty good – ‘Unbroken,’ the POW story.

You don’t say

My best memory as a Seahawks is: “As a game, probably the Kansas City game. And there were some playoff games in there that were very memorable. But the thing I remember most is the guys, the players. You now, the locker room camaraderie and that type of stuff.”

Something most people don’t know about me: “I guess what you see is what you get. I don’t know. Maybe that I have a sense of rumor, in a quiet way.”

If I could relive one day in my life: “You know, I don’t know. I don’t think I would really relive anything. Everything happens for a reason, and it guides you for the next part of your destination. You learn from the bad, you enjoy the good and everything shapes you accordingly.”
