The video highlights Kenny Easley, member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Virginia Sports Hall of Fame was the Seattle Seahawks first round pick in the 1981 NFL draft. A good choice as Easley was named an NFL All-Rookie selection and as the AFL “Defensive Rookie of the Year.” Easley followed up his first year in grand fashion starting a four-year string of being named All-Pro, All-AFC, and All-NFL. Twice during his five-year career, Easley was named the Seahawks’ “Most Valuable Player,” and in 1983-84, was selected as the AFC & NFL’s “Defensive Player of the Year.”
Easley briefly covers negative numbers and how they related to him intercepting a ball and running it back.
