Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Thursday, November 10 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III Named Fox Sports Midseason Offensive Rookie of the Year
Another week, another award for Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker III. Scoring two touchdowns and rushing for 109 yards on 26 carries in Week 9 is what likely cemented Walker receiving the Fox Sports 2022 Midseason Offensive Rookie of the Year honor.
"The Herd" host and NFL insider Colin Cowherd named Walker his Offensive Rookie of the Year at the midway point, breaking the pick down on his live show.
"Do you know he leads all players in the NFL with six touchdowns in the fourth quarter?" said Cowherd. "For a rookie, worn down, wearing down — not a chance. The Michigan State star has been a huge part of the resurgence. Two rookie tackles. Kenneth Walker, he is fun to watch."
In just 8 games, Walker has rushed for 570 yards on 111 carries for 7 touchdowns (No. 4 in the NFL). Currently, Walker is averaging over 5 yards per carry on the ground, one of seven backs league-wide to do so with over 100 carries. Walker is currently tied for fifth in big plays (20+ yard rushes) with five.
As the Seahawks get comfortable in Munich in preparation for Week 10's matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Walker has a chance to score a touchdown in six-consecutive games. The 2021 Doak Campbell award and Walter Camp Player of the Year award winner continues to make the Seahawks front office look like geniuses.
