If you think Lorenzo Alexander is a fierce competitor on the football field, then you should see him at the bowling alley.
Alexander — the Redskins’ middle linebacker and special teams standout — will be hosting his fourth annual Lorenzo Alexander ACES Foundation Celebrity Bowling event at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, at 300 Shady Grove in Gaithersburg, Md.
The event will feature your favorite Redskins players bowling with raffle prizes, a silent auction, food and non-alcoholic beverages.
This year, the event is being co-hosted by former Redskins wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, as the funds collected will help both Alexander’s ACES Foundation and Randle El’s El Foundation scholarship funds for Washington, D.C., metro-area students.
Both foundations “strive to provide life-changing opportunities for youth” by inspiring students to obtain higher education, maintain a strong family unit and give back to their communities, according to Alexander’s website.

The Falcons’ offensive attack that includes quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Michael Turner, tight end Tony Gonzalez and wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White will perhaps be the Washington defense’s toughest test yet in 2012.
Washington’s offense isn’t too shabby itself, though. Several NFL experts and analysts are predicting a shootout tomorrow at FedExField:

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III this week was encouraged via Twitter to come to a D.C.-area high school’s football game to support the school’s Friday-night breast cancer awareness endeavors.
And that’s exactly what Griffin III did.
Griffin III made a surprise visit to Broad Run High School in Ashburn, Va., and watched the host Spartans defeat Patriot High School, 34-20.
According to writer Sean Ferrell with Ashburn Patch, Broad Run students began sending tweets to the Redskins rookie quarterback this week inviting him to their “Pink’d”-themed game in support of the Loudoun Breast Health Network.
Griffin III then made his Friday-night plans known when he tweeted this:
