Russell Wilson Wins Training Camp HR Derby

Following Monday's practice, the Seahawks had their annual home run derby outside at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

Each position group had a representative in the derby along with the coaches and training staff. The reps for each one were as follows:

OL: Jordan Roos
TEs: Will Dissly
LBs: Austin Calitro
RBs: Tre Madden
DBs: Justin Coleman
WRs: Tanner McEvoy
Special Teams: Tyler Ott
QBs: Austin Davis
Coaches: Brian Schottenheimer
Trainers: Russell Wilson

The top-3 players from the first round advanced. Due to a tie, four moved on with those being Wilson (10), Davis (9), McEvoy (8) and Dissly (8). McEvoy would be the odd man out in the second round, leaving Wilson, Davis and Dissly in the championship. Wilson just edged out his fellow quarterback Davis 7 to 5 to win the derby. Even though he represented the trainers, Wilson shared the title with his offensive line group.

The Seahawks held their annual home run derby at the tail end of this year's training camp, with Russell Wilson taking home the title while representing both the club's training staff and offensive line group in the competition. The Seattle quarterback beat out fellow signal caller Austin Davis and rookie tight end Will Dissly in the championship round.
