Chris Samuels Goes To High School, And Other Links

Posted by Matt Terl on February 9, 2011 – 3:54 pm

Former Redskins coaching intern (oh, and offensive tackle) Chris Samuels has been named the new offensive coordinator at Blount High School in Mobile, Alabama. And, according to an article on AL.com, he’ll also be working as a substitute teacher while he’s there.

Samuels does not hold a teaching certificate and will be officially designated as a volunteer coach. To satisfy requirements as a volunteer coach, [Blount head coach Kevin] Sigler said, Samuels will work as a substitute teacher.”He’s not doing it for the money,” Sigler said. “He basically wants to give to the kids.”

Congratulations to Chris, who had mentioned the possibility of coaching high school more than once and talked often about paying his coaching dues. This seems like a terrific move for him.

The Pregame Video From FedExField

Posted by Matt Terl on February 9, 2011 – 10:00 am

Since it feels like the only videos I’ve posted so far this offseason have been grainy footage of Sam Huff, Sonny Jurgensen, and Chris Hanburger, here’s something a bit more vibrant, loud, and contemporary: the pregame video from this past season.

Yes, it has footage of Redskins greats, and yes, some of that footage is grainy (and even black and white), but the package as a whole is undeniably of the 21st century. Also, since the contemporary highlights were updated throughout the season, you get to see Ryan Torain, Anthony Armstrong, Brian Orakpo, DeAngelo Hall, and the current gold pants, among other signs of modernity. And, of course, the whole thing was created to look spectacular on the new HD videoboards; those of you who went to games at FedExField know that it did. And now those of you who weren’t able to go to any games can enjoy it as well.
