On this date: Happy birthday, Steve Largent

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Sept. 28:

1954: Steve Largent is born in Tulsa, Okla. Largent would join the expansion Seahawks in a 1976 trade with the Houston Oilers and by the time he retired after the 1989 season, he was the NFL’s all-time leader in receptions (819), receiving yards (13,089) and touchdown catches (100). He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility (1995) and had his number 80 retired that same year.

1980 – The Seahawks post the second shutout in club history, 14-0 over the Redskins at RFK Stadium. Jim Zorn and Dan Doornink run for touchdowns in the game, while the defense intercepts Joe Theisman four times – including two by Dave Brown.
