It’s not too late to get the opportunity to pay tribute to one of the greatest Redskins of all-time, while also enjoying some quality college football at an NFL facility.
The Virginia 529 College Savings Classic featuring West Virginia and James Madison at FedExField on Saturday, Sept. 15, has been declared “Sam Huff Day” in honor of former Redskin and Mountaineer legend. Kickoff has been set for 4:30 p.m., and you can still buy tickets by clicking here.
‘Sam Huff Day’ will pay tribute to Huff’s lifetime achievements in football, as well as commemorate his years of dedication and commitment to the Redskins and Mountaineers.
Huff will be the Mountaineers’ honorary captain and recognized at the end of the first quarter. He will also be honored pregame, on the video boards and at special events at FedExField throughout the day.
And, as if you needed any more incentive to attend the game and pay tribute to Huff, West Virginia’s athletic department on Tuesday wrote this great profile piece on Huff and the upcoming WVU-JMU game at FedExField.
Here’s a bonus item you’re going to enjoy: an interview with Huff done by Larry Michael, the Voice of the Redskins, in which Huff talks about his memories growing up in West Virginia and playing for the school:
