Steven Michael “Steve” Largent (September 28, 1954-) spent his entire career -- 13 seasons – as a sure-handed receiver for the Seattle Seahawks (1976-1989). An All-American at the University of Tulsa, the Houston Oilers chose Largent in the 4th round of the 1976 National Football League draft. After four pre-season games, the Oilers traded him to the expansion Seahawks for an eight-round pick in the 1977 draft. Largent was selected to the NFL Pro Bowl seven times -- the first Seahawk to earn that honor – and was an eight-time All-Pro. When he retired, Largent held all major NFL receiving records, including most receptions in a career (819), most receiving yards in a career (13,089), and most touchdown receptions (100), although 15 of the catches, 261 of the yards, and 3 of the touchdowns came against replacement players. He was also in possession of a then-record streak of 177 consecutive regular-season games with a reception. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995. Following his playing career, Largent served in the U.S. House of Representatives from Oklahoma from 1994 until 2002. He was defeated in Oklahoma’s 2002 gubernatorial election, despite having been considered the frontrunner during the campaign.
