Donny Harrel enters his sixth season at Seattle
University. He has overseen the program’s transition into
Division I. The Redhawks competed in the WAC for the first time
this past year, posting 10 conference wins and 21 total
victories. Harrel has registered multiple wins over Pac-12
opponents over the past three seasons.
Harrel also spent time as
an assistant at Washington and Oregon State.
In anticipation of Sunday’s Super Bowl between
the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, Harrel will share
his thoughts and insight on the NFC Champion Seahawks.
First Inning – How long have you been a
Seahawks fan? Who has been your favorite player to watch?
Since moving to Seattle in 2007. The "Beast"
Second Inning – Did you feel going into
the season that Seattle had a chance to reach the Super Bowl?
A chance - but I thought the offense was a little
too young yet with Wilson in his second year.
Third Inning – In your opinion, what
makes Pete Carroll such a successful head coach?
ENERGY! Great positive influencer with true
Fourth Inning – Which Seattle player
most impresses you?
Russell Okung - tough position, protects your
team's most important asset.
Fifth Inning – Who on your team would
make the best Seahawk and what position would he play?
Andrew Olson (Redshirt Senior LHP) His intensity
would put him at outside linebacker
Sixth Inning – Who is the biggest
Seattle fan on your team/staff?
Andrew Olson (yells as loud at his TV as the 12th
man does down at the games!)
Seventh Inning – Besides Peyton
Manning, which player from the Denver Broncos most concerns you?
Wes Welker, because he seems to make the plays
that are most needed in crucial situations
Eighth Inning – Why will the Seahawks
Defense and I believe NY will experience the 12th
man. Seahawk fans travel like no other!
Ninth Inning – What is your prediction
on the final score?
Extra Innings – What should we expect
from the Redhawks this season?
A stronger finish in the WAC Conference and an
opportunity to play in the WAC Tourney
