That's because Tyler Lockett — the Tulsa Washington, turned Kansas State, turned Seattle Seahawks football standout — was about as close to playing at “home” as he will this entire NFL season. So, how much family was in the crowd when the Seahawks handed the Cowboys a 13-12 defeat? “Too much,” Lockett said, then laughed. “Thank God for StubHub.” Lockett, a third-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, is off to a fast start in his first eight NFL games.
