Hankerson Wants ‘Hope Is Alive’ To Stick

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 3, 2012 – 2:26 pm


Four little words have inspired Washington Redskins’ wide receiver Leonard Hankerson and his friends to spread a positive message to the masses.

“Hope is Alive Today” is that message, and it’s something Hankerson often wears on a T-shirt around Redskins Park.

The message can be an inspiration to a variety of people, Hankerson said Friday afternoon.

“It could be for the football season around here, or it could be for little kids in the hospital,” the second-year wide receiver out of Miami said. “Anybody that’s going through a tough time or is down, we want them to know there’s always hope.”

Hankerson said the “Hope is Alive Today” message started off as a simple quote that a friend would include at the end of their emails.

“And then everybody kept saying, ‘That’s a great little line there,'” Hankerson said. “So we thought about putting it out there, putting it on shirts, and seeing where it goes.”

Hankerson has had recent personal experience to put the “Hope is Alive Today” message into play after he suffered a torn labrum last season during a breakout performance against the Miami Dolphins. At the time of his injury, the then-rookie had shredded the Dolphins’ secondary for eight catches for 106 yards.

Since that time, Hankerson has recovered to the point of being considered one of the team’s breakout players to watch in 2012.

“There’s always hope to come back from something like that,” he said.
