Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith is one of eight Mountaineers to be inducted into West Virginia University's Sports Hall of Fame Saturday.
Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there for today – Thursday, September 15 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Geno Smith Enters WVU Hall of Fame
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith is riding high after a spectacular performance in Week1’s 17-16 win over the Denver Broncos. Smith was surgical Monday, going 23-28 for 195 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Following Monday's win, Smith was interviewed post-game where he echoed the quote heard around the football world.
"They wrote me off, I ain't write back though" said Smith.
Now, Smith will join former Mountaineers teammates and star wideouts Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey as the 2022 football inductees to the hall.
"It means a lot," Smith said Thursday of the honor. "I know it means a lot to my family. Just going to college was a big thing for me. Obviously, I had a lot of great memories there. Just to be honored in this way is extremely special to me."
The 32nd Annual WVU Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place Saturday at the Calperton Indoor Practice Facility at 10am. The event is open to the public, allowing Mountaineers fans to support Smith and others before the team faces the Towson Tigers that afternoon.
