Robert Griffin III says he won’t reflect on his record-setting rookie campaign until after the season, but when his awards directly benefit the community, you can bet the Redskins quarterback will appreciate that fact immediately.
That was the case today, when Griffin III was named the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week, an award that comes with a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players’ names to their local offices of Junior Achievement.
It’s the second time Griffin III has won FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week award, so that means he’s sent $4,000 to the Washington, D.C., Junior Achievement office just based on his top-notch performances.
The FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week distinction was the third award Griffin III has won this week alone.
We’re not sure if Griffin III actually gets anything — a certificate, plaque, trophy, etc. — for all these awards, but if he does, his NFL trophy case is already filling up fast.
And his career has just started.
Stay tuned for what will assuredly be many more awards for Griffin III.
