Griffin III: Thank You For ESPY Award

He already received the Heisman Trophy award, given annually to college football’s best overall player.

And now Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III has been awarded an ESPY Award as the “Best Male College Athlete.”

At least that’s what the rookie quarterback tweeted early Wednesday evening, prior to the 9 p.m. (EST) showing of the annual ESPN awards show.

Griffin tweeted this around 8 p.m. Wednesday:

Griffin III and fellow rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins were each nominated for ESPYs. Griffin was nominated for “Best Breakthrough Athlete” and “Best Male College Athlete,” while Cousins — the Redskins’ fourth-round pick in April’s NFL Draft — was nominated alongside former Michigan State teammate Keith Nichol for the “Best Play” category.

(Nichol was on the receiving end of Cousins’ 44-yard, game-winning, deflected Hail Mary pass that gave the Spartans a 37-31 win over Wisconsin last October.)

If it turns out Griffin III or Cousins won their respective other categories, we’ll have it here on Redskins.com.

But congratulations to Robert for this terrific accomplishment.

    RG#3 will bring 3 to 4 more wins to the table this year, than last year, we I mean the Redskins, will get a wild card spot in the Playoffs, and that means a new season, Coach Mike & Son must get on the same page, to make this thing work. Keep and eye out on Santana Moss, this year with a QB like RG#3 Moss should have a big year and Mr. Hule, is the key to the Skins, ball control offense.
