Golden Tate is expected to soar as a Seahawk.

Raving about the young wide receiver, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is determined to call more plays designed for Golden Tate in 2013.

Taken out of Notre Dame
with the 60th pick in the 2010 draft, the 24-year-old Tate has caught 101 balls for 1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns in 42 games as a Seahawk.

“Golden is really ready to be a terrific football player,” said Carroll, 61, who earned the 2003 Home Depot National Coach of the Year award at USC and is 58-54 leading three NFL organizations. “We love what he does, and we just have to get him the ball more and spread it around to him. It took him a couple years to get going and now he’s legit for us and we love what he brings.”

Powered by standout quarterback Russell Wilson and a stifling defense, Seattle went 11-5 and defeated the host Washington Redskins 24-14 in a January playoff showdown.

Blessed with dynamic playmakers Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and Marshawn Lynch, it may be difficult for the 24-year-old Wilson to specifically target Tate.

Still, the 5-foot-10, 202 pound Tate is “legit” and he should shine in the “Rain City” this autumn.

“A terrific football player,” the NFC West had better prepare for Golden Tate.
