The Seahawks announced today that quarterback Matt Hasselbeck won the Steve Largent award. It’s the first time Hasselbeck has earned the honor, which was opened up to the coaching staff as well last season and is voted on by the players.
The award is given to the player best exemplifying the spirit, dedication, and integrity of former Seahawk wide receiver Steve Largent.
“I thought there were more deserving this year,” Hasselbeck said. “But it’s a very cool trophy and I’ll find a place for it.
“It’s a special honor. And they opened it up to coaches as well, so it’s more competition. And it’s voted on by your teammates, so that’s very important.”
Mike Holmgren won it last year.
