Richard Sherman has always been more than just your average football player.

But the Seattle Seahawks' cornerback took his wide-ranged skills to the next level on Wednesday when he dressed up as Harry Potter and completely embodied the wizardry role for his press conference.

"When you're a wizard, like we are out here, sometimes you have to show it to the Muggles out in the world," Sherman said. "We've got a lot of wizards. My son's a wizard. Earl Thomas does some magical things. Michael Bennett is Black Santa, but he's also a wizard."

Do yourself a favor and watch:

Richard "Harry Potter" Sherman had so much fun pretending to be a wizard on Wednesday that he plans to take his son trick-or-treating for Halloween wearing the same costume.

"He's going to have a mask going, I'm going to have this on, nobody's going to have any idea," Sherman said. "This is all you gotta do – Clark Kent did it. You just gotta put the glasses on - bam, no longer Richard Sherman."

He finished by waving his wand, saying "Wingardium Leviosa" and then he promptly left the podium.
