Rookie Garner Enjoys D.C. Area History

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 13, 2012 – 5:04 pm

The Washington D.C. area can be a lot to take in for a wide-eyed rookie, but Redskins’ rookie center Grant Garner is happy to eat it all up.

A self-described “history buff,” Garner said he has enjoyed spending his weekends getting away from Redskins Park and into the several historical sites the area has to offer.

“It’s been really great,” said Garner, a business management major at Oklahoma State. “It’ll probably keep me busy for a really long time.”

Garner — an undrafted free agent — said he’s spent time throughout the actual D.C. area, as well as at Gettysburg and at Mount Vernon. He said he enjoys the Civil War era the most.

“Gettysburg was really neat,” Garner said Wednesday after the team’s second mini-camp practice.

As for the football side of things, Garner is not the only rookie offensive lineman from Oklahoma State participating in mini-camp activities for the Redskins.

Guard Nick Martinez is also a former Cowboy, and Garner said it’s been great having a college teammate to rely on while learning the pro game.

“It’s awesome,” Garner said. “It’s such a huge blessing. I’m very thankful that he’s here.”

Garner said getting a grip on a pro offense has been “really hard” and “competitive.”

“It’s a big adjustment,” he said. “I’m just getting used to it more every day.”
