  About Steve Largent
Standing near the fiction section inside the library at Putnam City High, Steve Largent swore it wasn’t a place he spent much time when he was a student. Academics weren’t his thing. Athletics were. “That’s what I majored in, in high school,” he said.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer didn’t say so in a sheepish way or a shameful manner. Rather, his words were more matter-of-fact. Playing sports is what he had to do.
Largent, now 69, played college football at Tulsa University as a wide receiver. He went on to play in the NFL with the then-expansion Seattle Seahawks in 1976. He spent his entire career with the Seahawks and is widely regarded as one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history.
Largent earned the nickname Yoda because he could catch anything thrown at him., Steve Largent concluded his 14 National Football League seasons with league career records for receptions, 819; yards, 13,089; touchdowns, 100; consecutive games with a reception, 177; 50-catch seasons, 10; and 1000-yard seasons, 8. Largent became the first Seahawks player to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on July 29, 1995, and only the 23rd player to be elected in first year of eligibility. He finished in the AFC’s (NFC in 1976) top 10 in receptions 10 times in his first 12 seasons.
Largent finished in the top 10 in receiving yards seven times, including a first-place finish in 1985, and second in 1978, missing the lead by one yard. Selected to play in the Pro Bowl seven times (1978, 1979, 1981, 1984, 1985, 1986, and 1987) and was first-team All-NFL (AP) in both 1979 and 1985. Largent led the team in both receptions and yards in each of the team’s first 12 seasons. Third in games played (200) but has more starts (197) than any other player in Sea­hawks history. After retiring from the game in 1989, Steve became the inaugural inductee into the Ring of Honor.
“My purpose in playing is to represent Christ,” Largent told Sports Spectrum. “And my motivation is to be the very best I can be. That involves preparing myself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally to be a great football player.
Largent would gain political aspirations and represented the 1st District of the State of Oklahoma for four terms. He would then serve and be re-elected for his home state in the United States House of Representatives before resigning in his first-year of his fourth term to pursue the governorship of Oklahoma.
