LeGree's new home: Qwest Field.

Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree didn't live in Beaufort County long, but his family ties are still to St. Helena Island, where he was born and his grandparents live — and now he's the fifth-round pick for the Seattle Seahawks.

The Island Packet spotted this obscure connection, so I'll point you to their brief for details and direct you to Georgia's Ledger-Enquireer for details on LeGree's recruitment.
