The nickname 'Legion of Boom' was given to the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. Powell Panther's scout team defense has taken the moniker and made it their own.

The 'Legion of Boom' consists of Jackson Witt, Carson Whitehead, Brian Morales and Owen Peterson.

Powell High School assistant coach Jason West gave the four players the nickname.

"Those four guys run the scout team for us, and go against some of the best receivers in the area," West said. "One of the kids, Owen Peterson, is a big Seattle Seahawks fan. So kind of tongue and cheek, I started tweeting out 'Legion of Boom' had this many interceptions. So it's caught on and a lot of the kids have had fun with it."
