Pete Carroll was bowled over by Russell Okung when the Seahawks’ coach made a visit to Stillwater for the Pro Day workout by the Oklahoma State tackle.
But it had nothing to do with Okung’s prowess on the lanes after they decided to go bowling.
“There was some extra time and we said, ‘Hey, let’s go bowling,’ ” Okung said after the Seahawks made him the sixth pick in the first round of the NFL draft. “It didn’t go too well on my end, but it was a great game.”
Asked what his score was, Okung laughed and said, “Like a 50.”
The Seahawks are counting on their being more Pro Bowls than gutter balls in Okung’s future.
