The final day of Redskins practice has arrived for the 2011 season. It’s a routine that began in training camp at the end of July, and has lasted five months to the end of December.
There were days of 100-degree temperatures, and days when it was in the 30’s. There were many days when it rained (sometimes creating lakefront property) and other days when onlookers got sunburn. There were days when thousands of fans packed the sidelines, and many many more when they did not.
On this particular youth-infused team, there were opportunities (and potentially careers) that were launched on the back fields, both through injury and excellence. All together, there were six players that rose from the practice squad to the active roster this season, meaning that six players proved their muster exclusively in practice.
Here are a few of the Redskins players’ thoughts on the last day of school:
