More than 120 students from nearby Sterling Middle School got a chance hang out with their favorite Washington Redskins players and get in a good workout Tuesday.
The Redskins played host to an NFL Play 60 Mini-Combine at their Ashburn, Va., facility, and took advantage of their new indoor training facility by taking things inside as rains and heavy winds moved over the area.
The event was a team effort between the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, Commonwealth Orthopaedics, DePuy Mitek, Inc. and Safe Kids Worldwide.
The students were being trained with the help of nine Redskins players who were happy to participate on their day off Tuesday, including:
- Defensive lineman Chris Baker
- Wide receiver/returner Brandon Banks
- Offensive lineman Adam Gettis
- Safety DeJon Gomes
- Offensive lineman Maurice Hurt
- Running back Alfred Morris
- Offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus
- Running back Evan Royster
- Fullback Darrel Young
Here’s a video from Tuesday’s Play 60 event, which educated the students on injury prevention, physical fitness and concussion safety:
