Competition comes naturally for Seahawks OL Satao Laumea

Perhaps the defining mantra of Pete Carroll is “always compete.” It defined his Seattle Seahawks to the point it practically became ingrained in the organization’s genetic code. While Carroll may no longer be calling the shots in Seattle, it is unfathomable to think his emphasis on competition is going away any time soon.

This is a good sign for rookie offensive lineman Sataoa Laumea, who has a unique understanding of what it means to compete. For Laumea, competition practically raised him… literally.

If competition is the nature of the Seahawks organization, then Laumea was nurtured in an environment that bred it. Don’t believe me? You can read for yourself in the tweet below.

Laumea was a four-year starter at Utah, which has arguably been one of the most overlooked programs in college football for a while now. The Utes are always defined by their physicality and toughness. I have no doubt Laumea will bring this to Seattle.

To start out, Laumea saw most of his snaps at left guard during rookie minicamp.
