Safety Kam Chancellor Named Steve Largent Award Winner

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor was name the 2016 Steve Largent Award winner prior to Thursday night's game, his second time earning the award in three years.

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor was named the 2016 Steve Largent Award winner, his second time earning the honor in three years.

The Steve Largent award, named for the Hall of Fame Seahawks receiver who first earned the award in 1989, is voted on annually by Seahawks players and given to the player who best exemplifies the spirit, dedication and integrity of the Seahawks.

"Kam exemplifies true leadership on the field and in the locker room," said Largent. "His passion and on-field play reinforce the definition of the Seahawks."

Chancellor was honored in an on-field presentation prior to Thursday's night's game against the Los Angeles Rams where he was presented the Steve Largent Award trophy by Largent.

Chancellor, who was voted the team's defensive captain by his teammates prior to the season, is a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time second-team All Pro, and has been a big part of a Seahawks defense that has led the NFL in scoring defense for four straight seasons, appearing in two Super Bowls along the way, including a 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

In partnership with Kam Cares Foundation, Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and Seattle's Union Gospel Mission will hosted its fifth annual holiday toy drive to serve nearly 1,000 children in need.

Off the field, Chancellor launched the Kam Cares Foundation in 2013, a non-profit that seeks to equip children from underserved communities in his hometown of Hampton Roads, Virginia and the Seattle area with education, health and wellness tools and resources to position students for greater academic success. Among the events put on by the Kam Cares Foundation is an annual holiday toy drive in partnership with Seattle's Union Gospel Mission.
