You can hear what you want but veteran Seattle Seahawks defensive player Richard Sherman has proven to be one of the better cornerbacks in the National Football League. Sherman is also one of the more passionate athletes in the NFL.
After his comments about San Francisco 49ers Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree, sports reporters labeled Sherman as an irresponsible thug. Others viewed him as a passionate player who is the spark the NFL needs.
Sherman went to high school at Compton Dominguez high school. He attended Stanford University in 2006 with a Communications degree. Not only was he a star athlete in both football and track & field, but he excelled academically, graduating with honors.
“It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am.” Sherman said during his post-game interview versus the 49ers. “People find it easy to take shots on Twitter and to use racial slurs and bullying language far worse than what’ll you ever see from me.”
The Seattle Seahawks ended the 2013-2014 NFL season with a well-deserved victory against the highly-favored Denver Broncos in Superbowl XLVIII, 43-8. The Seahawks were the underdogs in the championship game by a two-point spread, as Sherman received a standing ovation after facing an injury that short-lived his moment.
The Beats by Dre’s Hear What You Want campaign continues with a commercial based on the Sherman’s road to the Superbowl and the start of his legacy.
The commercial starts with a group of reporters surrounding Sherman for interviews asking him questions about his playoffs experience and how he views himself as a role model to children in his hometown of Compton, Calif.
“Is your trash-talking a distraction to your teammates?” “It doesn’t distract anyone it motivates,” Sherman calmly responds as questions began to go from humbling to personal.
“Why are you considered in this league as a thug?” a reporter asks.
Sherman stares with disgust as he answers that he does not have that reputation. Concluding his final question, he tunes out the reporters with the $379.95 Beats Wireless, the newest addition to the Beats by Dre headphones.

The ear pads on the Beats Wireless make it comfortable for listeners’ ears, providing noise-canceling quality with the headphones.
