1976: The Seahawks open their inaugural training camp at Eastern Washington University in Cheney. The team would summer in Cheney until 1985 and then again from 1997-2006. “We were quite a group,” said Jim Zorn, the left-handed quarterback for the Left Coast expansion team. “Some of the guys on that team didn’t want to be here. Some of them probably didn’t belong here. But that was our team.”
