The Seahawks are back at it, starting training camp today, and here’s a few things to read to get you in the mood for some football.

Eric Williams, the former Sun staffer now working at the News Tribune in Tacoma, has a nice piece on head coach Jim Mora. It details his relationship with his father, the former NFL head coach with the same name, and talks about the passion he’s always had for the game.

Mora tells Williams he’s got extra motivationt to be successful in Seattle because of his connections to the city.

“To me, as an NFL football coach, you come into a situation a little bit as a mercenary,” he said. “You don’t really have an affiliation with the city or the team that has hired you. Now, it grows as you are there.

“But for me, being the Seattle Seahawks’ head coach, that isn’t the case. This is where I grew up. This was my team. This is where my best friends and family live. So I feel a real responsibility to this community to make them proud of this football team. And I intend to do that.”
