Sportswriter Shaun Scott talks with Seahawks legend Kam Chancellor about his life away from football.

Seattle Seahawks legend Kam Chancellor thoroughly enjoys being one of the most recognizable faces in the Pacific Northwest community.

Chancellor, who played for the Seahawks from 2010 through 2017, will be appearing at the American Express Experience prior to the start of the Seattle Seahawks/Minnesota Vikings football game on Dec. 10. Chancellor will be meeting with fans and Amex Card members where he will be posing for photos and signing autographs. Chancellor will be on site at 165 South Jackson Street from 3-4 p.m. this Monday.

“It means a lot to me and I think it means a lot to the fans as well because most importantly the fans have been so supportive of me all eight years of my career,” Chancellor said. “They have been making tons and tons of noise. They’ve also been coming to so many of my foundations events that I have been having. It is just time for me now to share that experience with them and give back and just have a fun exciting time interacting with them.”

I had the opportunity to ask Chancellor some questions about his life away from the gridiron via a phone interview on Dec. 6.

Shaun Scott: What is your dream vacation spot?

Kam Chancellor: My dream vacation would be on a secluded island, in a hut, in front of the beach chilling with my wife.

SS: What is your favorite movie of all time?

KC: I’m going to go with “The Karate Kid.”

SS: What is your biggest pet peeve?

KC: One of my biggest pet peeves is when I’m on an airplane, people will cough and sneeze and they’re not covering their mouths.

SS: What is your favorite restaurant in the Seattle area?

KC: One of them is Wild Ginger (Asian restaurant).

SS: What is the last movie you saw in the theater?

KC: I just went to see “Creed II.” It was real good.

SS: What is your favorite hobby?

KC: I like to play some basketball.

SS: What kind of music do you listen to the most in your car right now?

KC: I like Christian hip-hop.

SS: Who was the toughest quarterback you’ve ever faced in your NFL career?

KC: Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers quarterback).

SS: What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

KC: I think the best piece of advice I’ve ever received was to not let people rent space in your head.
