Redskins Charitable Foundation Awards Scholarship To Future Bilingual Pediatrician

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2010 – 4:56 pm

You would think Kiana Hardy would’ve been excited to tell her mother the news: she had been named the recipient of a $25,000 scholarship from the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, $5,000 per year for up to five years of school. After all, her mother had taken out an enormous loan to help realize Hardy’s collegiate dreams, and the scholarship would go a long way toward ameliorating that expense.

Someone Else Says Nice Things About Lorenzo Alexander

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2010 – 2:36 pm

I think it’s beyond a doubt at this point: through the first half of OTAs, Lorenzo Alexander’s transition to the outside linebacker spot has been one of the unquestioned positives. Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was effusive on this subject last week, and plenty of people took notice.

Today, ESPN980’s Al Galdi asked head coach Mike Shanahan to follow up on Haslett’s comments. “Jim Haslett had a lot of nice things to say about Lorenzo Alexander last Wednesday,” Galdi boomed. “Is he a guy that stood out to you as well?
