The 2014 ESPYs have come to an end and the final award of the night was the Best Team Award. The award went to the Seattle Seahawks who went to the Super Bowl for the second time in their franchise’s history and earned their first Vince Lombardi Trophy.
A large collection of players got up on stage to accept the award and quarterback Russell Westbrook spoke on the team’s behalf. He thanked head coach Pete Carroll and noted his consistency coming into work and leading by example. Westbrook also thanked general manager John Schneider for believing in the players and drafting them when other teams decided to steer away.
Earlier in the show, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman won the award for Best Breakthrough Athlete.
The other nominees in the category were the following: Boston Red Sox, MLB; Connecticut Women’s Basketball; Florida State Football; Los Angeles Kings, NHL; San Antonio Spurs, NBA.
