The Seattle Seahawks were selected BEST Sports Team by the voters of Western Washington in 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016's Best of Western Washington contest.

A fan favorite here in the northwest, the Seattle Seahawks have won nine division titles and three conference championships. They have appeared in three Superbowl championships, and defeated the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII to win their first ever championship.

But the wins don't just stop there for the Seahawks: quarterback Russell Wilson was the winner of Best Pro Athlete and Man of the Year for Best of Western Washington 2016.

With his incredible football talent--being deemed one of the highest rated passers in the NFL of all time--and his huge heart to visit the Seattle Children's hospital every week, there is no doubt that Russell Wilson truly deserves these accolades!
