It was a night to remember for the Seattle Seahawks at the 2014 ESPY awards hosted by ESPN. Things kicked off with Richard Sherman winning the “Breakout Athlete Of The Year” award. Later in the night, Russell Wilson was called to the stage with Jessica Alba to present an award, and soon after that the show’s host, hip hop star Drake, was seen wearing a Marshawn Lynch jersey.
It was an emotional night full of laughs, tear-jerking tales, and feel-good stories. Individuals were recognized for great achievements, Ronda Rousey was voted the most iconic female athlete of the year, and Stewart Scott and Michael Sam motivated the audience with their tales of personal struggle and perseverance.
