All throughout yesterday the Washington Redskins packed their bags and left the comfy confines of Redskins Park en route to the Bon Secours Training Center just a few miles south in Richmond.
The players tweeted out their excitement on the eve of another season, but what you didn’t hear about was the equipment’s trek down.
Well obviously you didn’t because equipment can’t talk nor do they use the luxury of Twitter.
Anyway, Washington Redskins equipment manager Brad Berlin willing made himself the spokesman for all the pads, helmets and bags and gave an inside peak at how everything got down here.
Berlin chatted with Larry Michael deep in the pits of the Bon Secours Training Center to help explain the process it took to get everything down to Virginia’s Capital thanks to Eureka Van Storage Co., INC.
Despite thousands of pounds equipment hauled by 10 trucks, Berlin said the move was “relatively simple”.
Now before I continue, when you’re down in Richmond over the coming weeks and spot him, make sure to get him a Redskins t-shirt.
It’s really pretty cool to see how everything works behind the scenes. While guys like Robert Griffin III and London Fletcher carry this team on the field, its guys like Brad Berlin who help make everything run smoothly.
The typical schedule they encounter during the regular season is already an excruciating grind, but with two practices a day during training camp, there is an added layer of work to do.
Just like the players, training camp is a great way for them to get back in the grove of things and learn new [folding] techniques.
Let’s hope they also remember to pack Perry Riley a pair of shorts this year.
