He may have knackered himself out during the Seattle Seahawks' excruciating 6-6 tie with the Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix over the weekend, but Richard Sherman wasn't going to let the disappointment of Sunday's game prevent him from keeping a promise to his son.

Three days on from the Seahawks' first ever tie in their history, the SuperBowl winning cornerback appeared at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center sporting an outfit that puts any of Cam Newton's efforts to shame.

In an effort to fully prepare for a night of Trick or Treating with his son Rayden, next Monday night, Sherman arrived for his press conference yesterday looking more like a Gryffindor than a Seahawk, adorned in full Harry Potter robes and with a replica of Albus Dumbledore's wand grasped in his hand.

Accompanied by the film franchise's theme tune playing on his phone, Sherman fielded questions on the JK Rowling series, declaring that he is "definitely a wizard" and, when asked what's harder, five quarters of football or a game of quidditch, the three time Pro Bowler declared, "Five quarters of football is pretty tough, but Quidditch - the beaters, the chasers, trying to find the golden snitch, things like that - that's tough. Five quarters of football, though, in the elements, I'd say that'd take the cake."

The full, magical interview can be seen below:

Got to be honest, surprised with the 'Legion Of Boom' member's favourite book in the series being The Order Of The Phoenix. Always had him down as a Half Blood Prince sort of bloke.
