State Elks Convention Welcomes Redskins

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 18, 2012 – 11:10 am

The Washington Redskins 80th Anniversary Thank You Tour continued Saturday with a lively stop at the Virginia State Elks Convention in Falls Church, Va.

Several former and current Redskins players — as well as the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders — made an appearance Saturday, to the delight of the crowd.

Among the Redskins’ alumni making the trip were defensive end Dexter Manley — who has become a staple on the 80th Anniversary Tour — as well as former wide receivers Virgil Seay and Roy Jefferson.

Current players — free safety DeJon Gomes and tight end Niles Paul, both Nebraska products — also tagged along and entertained the crowd.

Here’s a short video from the event, featuring speeches from Manley, Seay and Jefferson. Below that is a photo gallery from Saturday’s stop:
