NEW PODCAST: Kevin Mawae, 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee

THIS IS EPISODE 285 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Kevin Mawae joined the Seattle Seahawks in 1994 as the team’s second-round draft pick (36th overall). Over the next 16 seasons, he evolved into one of the greatest centers in the league. Mawae spent his first four seasons with Seattle before signing with the Jets in 1998. He would go on to play eight seasons in New York and then his final four seasons with the Tennessee Titans.

In his career, Mawae was named to eight Pro Bowls, six of which came after the age of 30, and he was a first-team All-Pro six times. He was a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade team, and also the NFL Players Association president from 2008-12. He played his final NFL game at the Pro Bowl in February 2010.

He is currently a football analyst coach at Arizona State under his former Jets head coach, Herman Edwards. In February, Mawae was selected for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Mawae about being inducted into the Hall of Fame, how his faith became real to him after the death of his brother, his favorite Herm Edwards story, and why mentorship was so important in his development as a man and a follower of Jesus.
