Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is not just a wizard on the field, he is also one off the field. Sporting a genuine Harry Potter costume complete with wand, Richard held his week 8 press conference because his son asked him too dress up. Sherman professes he is a huge Harry Potter fan and even considers himself a Gryffindor. He talked about his favorite movie and if he thought Quidditch was tougher then 5 quarters of football in the NFL.

Richard Sherman Week 8 Press Conference

It turns out that Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling keeps a close eye on everything Potter and got wind of Richards love for the world she created. Rowling quickly tweeted how she was a Seahawks fan, thanks to Richard Sherman. Let's hope the Seahawks can use some of that magic when they take on the Saints this Sunday! Happy Blue Friday, and Go Hawks!
