Hawthorne looking forward to trip home
The Corsicana High School graduate remembers trips to Texas Stadium and playing in front of crowds upward of 20,000 people.
With Hawthorne now playing for the Seattle Seahawks, his friends and family back home don't get the chance to see him play very often.
"Because we play so far away from Texas, our games don't get broadcast unless you get some special cable package that a lot of our friends and family don't got," Hawthorne said.
[...] Pete Carroll has completely overhauled the roster, leaving Hawthorne as one of just 13 members who were with the Seahawks organization at the time — and only 10 who are currently on the 53-man active roster.
Hawthorne sprained his knee during training camp and missed two preseason games and the season opener against San Francisco.
