In a college term paper, Seau, a first-team All-American who recorded 19 sacks and 27 tackles for loss as a junior, wrote: "I have dreamed of playing in front of thousands of screaming fans since the age of 11 and having them chant my name as I made a good play. Sports have always been more than just games or entertain- ment to me. Sports have been a way of life. In this case the benefits can last a lifetime. I'm working twice as hard now so I can be twice as satisfied later in life."
