Marshawn Lynch, the often written and talked-about NFL player who graduated from Oakland Tech High School, made his hometown pro football debut during a trip to Oakland this weekend as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.

He was fresh off a trade that sent him from the Buffalo Bills to the Seahawks. But the visit home didn’t go quite as he had expected.

He had planned to unleash his Beast Mode and let it loose on the Silver and Black. Beast Mode is what Lynch calls his on-field persona—a running force that won’t be denied, that demands at least two tacklers. It’s something he says he learned from growing up in Oakland.
