A trio of Seahawks personnel past and present were inducted to the Pacific Northwest Football Hall of Fame on Thursday, July 26, when Legend Shaun Alexander, former head coach Chuck Knox, and current vice president of community outreach Mike Flood were honored during a special lunch and ceremony at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.
Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, July 26 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
2019 Pacific Northwest Hall of Fame
The moment we’ve all been waiting for, more Seahawks were inducted to the 2019 Pacific Northwest Football Hall of Fame on Thursday. This year, three key members of the organization were recognized for their impact on the Seattle football community.
The annual luncheon, hosted by the Seattle Sports Commission, took place at our very own CenturyLink Field.
The list of Seahawks inductees starts with late head coach and Ring of Honor member Chuck Knox, who was recognized for his dedication and devotion to the team. Knox led the team to the franchise’s first-ever postseason appearance, totaling four playoff berths in his nine seasons at the helm.
Number two on the inductee list was none other than Legend Shaun Alexander, who was inducted for his accomplishments on the field and setting a multitude of franchise records.
Last, but certainly not least, Vice President of Community Outreach Mike Flood was inducted for his service to the organization and community at large over the past 22 years. Flood has led a plethora of community initiatives to make an impact in Seattle and beyond.
Seahawks president Chuck Arnold, who was in attendance, tweeted out a photo of Alexander, Flood, and Chuck Knox Jr. (who was accepting the induction on his father’s behalf) recognizing the trio’s amazing accomplishment.
Let us congratulate these three esteemed members of the organization, as they join other Pacific Northwest leaders such as Steve Largent, Paul Allen, Drew Bledsoe, and Don James. “This event has honored 216 Pacific Northwest leaders who left an impact on the game of football forever," notes visitSeattle.com.
