Hail To The Redskins Walk: Part 1

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 30, 2011 – 5:21 pm

The Redskins have unveiled two wall murals dedicated to the rich history of the football team, entitled the “Hail to the Redskins Walk.”

One mural is adjacent to the locker room on the first floor of the facilities at Redskins Park.  Players cannot enter or exit the locker room without seeing life-sized pictures of Slingin’ Sammy Baugh or “The Diesel,” John Riggins, immortalized on the wall.

“It displays the storied history of this proud franchise,” said Redskins Senior Vice President, Tony Wyllie.  “Anyone that walks downstairs and takes a look at it will instantly understand what this organization is all about.”

The mural magically appeared on Monday morning, and curious players have been seen pausing on their way to and from meetings, taking a closer look.  Wyllie said, “Everyone from veterans to rookies have read it and studied it, and walked away proud to be a Redskin.”

An identical wall has been constructed at FedExField, and will have television screens embedded in the wall for a delightfully multimedia experience.  It’s located on the club level of the stadium.

This is Part One of an eight-part series, looking at each decade of the Redskins history, as depicted on the walls.

The Redskins were born in the 1930′s, in Boston, Mass.  Originally known as the Braves, the team moved to greener pastures in Washington, D.C., and became the Redskins that we all know and love.

Here are shots of the 1930′s panel on the Hail to the Redskins Walk:

    Buckwheat – I thought I’d read this somewhere, but also according to the following note in WIkipedia (see section regarding Boston Bulldogs), the 1929 team was separate of the 1932 Boston team: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pottsville_Maroons

    This is really cool. The Redskins sent out a mailer version of this a while back. It’s hanging in my office at work.
