CBS Sports Highlights Seahawks’ Super Bowl XLVIII Team for 10-Year Anniversary: ‘Beyond Just Athletes’

The Legion of Boom: From Football Champions to Activists

The Legion of Boom, comprised of Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas, and Kam Chancellor, became a force to be reckoned with in the NFL. They were instrumental in Seattle’s first title in 2013 as the best secondary in the league. Michael Bennett also emerged as a dynamic wideout threat that year and helped make Seattle’s defense the top-ranked in the league.

However, their success was not just limited to their on-field performance. In 2014, they used their platform to speak out about three young Black men who were killed at various points by police. Despite facing backlash for their actions, they stood firm and emphasized the importance of using their voices to bring justice for the voiceless. They believed it was crucial to amplify voices and share stories that needed to be told.

Their activism caught the attention of people around the world as viral instances of police brutality continued to go global via social media and news outlets. This led to a team meeting where they had to decide what action they would take and engage in an emotional conversation about the magnitude of their platform.
