Terrence Austin Also Has A T-Shirt And A Football Camp

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 11, 2011 – 1:46 pm

When Redskins offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger held a football camp, I was most impressed by the custom-logo T-shirt he was pictured wearing — but was very disappointed that I couldn’t clearly make out the entire logo. Well, I owe a big thanks to CSNWashington, because they open their profile of second-year wide receiver Terrence Austin‘s camp with this excellent lingering shot:

I really admire whomever at CSNWashington thought to themselves, ‘Hey, let’s make Matt Terl’s strange obsession with individualized logos a little bit easier.’ Impressive work.

Also impressive? Austin himself, talking about his camp. “I didn’t have camps when I was coming up,” he tells the camera. “I never was involved with a camp where a pro football player came back and actually gave back to the community, and that’s really what inspired me to do it.”

The kids in the piece look to be having a great time, and Austin’s dispensing actual advice rather than just rah-rah-ing at them. It looks to be be an excellent inaugural teaching experience for one of the Redskins’ promising young wideouts.

Watch the entire CSNWashington video after the jump.

Doc Walker Remembers The Influence Of John Mackey

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 11, 2011 – 12:17 pm

Intern Brian Tinsman checks in with another story from the Bobby Mitchell Hall Of Fame Golf Classic.

The NFL community lost a great leader last week with the passing of former Baltimore Colt John Mackey. A superstar at the tight end position, his playing style inspired young athletes like Rick “Doc” Walker in the 1960s and 70’s. But it was his influential leadership off the field that helped guide the current state of the NFL.

Mackey was a long-time supporter and attendee of Bobby Mitchell’s Annual Hall of Fame Golf Classic, and was remembered by Walker at the event this past weekend.

Redskins Players React To The U.S. Women’s Soccer Game: A Twitter Story

Posted by Matt Terl on July 11, 2011 – 9:41 am

Back in 1999, I found myself completely engrossed in the U.S. Women’s Soccer squad’s run through the World Cup. I’m not claiming to be any kind of huge fan — I probably watched a grand total of forty minutes of women’s soccer in then decade following — but I really got caught up in those games. It felt like an oddly solitary pursuit, though — I would watch the games in a College Park bar with a co-worker from the record store … and that felt like it for companionship. In those bleak, pre-Twitter days, it was still possible to wonder if anyone else was enjoying a Random Sporting Event alongside you.

Twelve years later, things are a little bit different. By the time yesterday’s amazing U.S./Brazil contest wrapped up in penalty kicks, it seemed like every single person on my Twitter timeline was watching, including a whole bunch of your Washington Redskins.

Linebacker Perry Riley was onboard and tweeting from the very beginning:

Most Redskins players, though, were either late to join the viewing party or just kept their thoughts mostly to themselves — at least until a controversial sequence involving a questionable foul call followed by an even-more-questionable retake on the ensuing penalty kick.

At that point, first-round draft choice Ryan Kerrigan chimed in:

There was little Redskins chatter as the game went into extra time tied, and no reaction I can find as Brazil took the lead. And then, as extra time turned into injury time and the clock seemed to be running out on the U.S. Women, this happened:
