On Saturday, quarterback Robert Griffin III wrapped up his phenomenal rookie campaign winning the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year award over fellow first-year studs Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson.

The award is just icing on the cake for the quarterback. He smashed his way into the record books the moment he put on his number 10 Redskins jersey.

In his professional debut in New Orleans, he tossed a pair of  touchdown passes in a 40-32 victory over the Saints. He capped off his season leading the team to its first NFC East title in 13 years.

He amassed 20 touchdowns, 3,200 yards, and a 102.4 quarterback rating  through the air along with 815 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in 15 regular season games.

Griffin III was instrumental in revolutionizing Washington’s offense. He was the catalyst of a top five unit that led the league in rushing with 169.3 yards per game.

While Robert rightfully deserved the accolade for his accomplishments, football is the ultimate team sport. He is just one of 53 men who make up the Washington Redskins on game days.

Find out what some of his teammates had to say to him on Twitter here:

Tight end Niles Paul:

Offensive lineman Chris Chester:

Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Kerrigan:

Tight end Deangelo Peterson:

Cornerback Richard Crawford:

Fellow rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins:

Linebacker Keenan Robinson:

Defensive lineman Chris Baker:

Wide receiver Pierre Garçon:

And finally, some words from the man himself to Redskins Nation!

Congratulations once again Robert on a tremendous season! We look forward to seeing you back on the field soon!

    Congratulations to RGIII for winning the R.O.Y. award ! Get well and be careful with the rehab. You are a very intelligent and well spoken man. I hope you will lead this team for many years to come. You are a leader in every sense of the word. Thank you for the sacrifice that you have made for this team and its fans. You are an inspiration to all and someone the young people can look up to. God speed to you in your recovery. Please don`t rush back on the fans account. Take your time for we know you will be smarter and stronger than you were before, but the main concern is your health and well being. Congrats. and get well, sir.
