The great week for Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett continues. Just days after learning his feature on Black Wall Street had won an Emmy Award, Lockett was honored again on Thursday night as the 2022 Seattle Male Sports Star of The Year.
The live awards show has been a tradition in Emerald City dating back to 1936. Created by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and renowned sports editor Royal Brougham, the show has honored some of the biggest names to play professional sports in the city.
Since arriving in Seattle from Kansas State in 2015, Lockett has developed into a reliable and incredibly productive receiver in the Seahawks offense, and 2021 was arguably his best season yet, setting a career high with 1,175 receiving yards, his third-consecutive 1,000-yard season.
The successes have continued off the field. Lockett received the 2021 Steve Largent Award, given annually to the team contributor who best exemplifies the spirit, dedication, and integrity of the Seahawks. He was also the Seahawks nominee for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, recognizing a player for their excellence on and off the field. And if that wasn't enough, Lockett passed his real estate licensing exam earlier this offseason, selling his first home in April.
