NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY)- Kam Chancellor held his annual Memorial Day cookout in Norfolk on Saturday. This is the first time, though, that he’s done it as a Super Bowl champion.
“It feels good to be a Super Bowl champ now, but coming back here and seeing all my supporters and all my family, that’s the biggest thing to me,” said Chancellor, who’s career started at Maury High School in Norfolk, “Sharing this victory with them, their smiles, this joy with them, with all the people that raised me and that love me.”
Chancellor lead a Seattle Seahawks defense that all but stifled a Peyton Manning-lead Denver Broncos offense in Super Bowl XLVIII, and he wasn’t the only Seahawk on hand. His teammate and now famed cornerback Richard Sherman also joined in the festivities, which included some dancing, autograph sessions and even juding a BBQ contest.
“He’s a great person, (has a) great heart, does a great job in this community, and we have no problem supporting him,” said Sherman.
Other guests included Seahawks defensive back Earl Thomas and Baltiomore Ravens quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
