Quarterback Robert Griffin III is widely considered the sock “king” of, perhaps, the entire sporting university as he is known to own countless pairs of socks ranging from your typical, everyday all blacks to some unorthodox pairs that would make traditional sock connoisseurs cower.
The young signal caller might have some competition for best sock game on the team though. For anyone who’s followed Niles Paul’s career since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, you know that he has one of the more colorful personalities.
It couldn’t have been more evident than today, when he sported some patriotic red, white and blue socks with his burgundy and gold practice gear.
Paul, born in the heartland of America, said he did it in support of the country he calls home.
“It’s just a little patriotic thing for today. I’m trying to do something a little different every day with some of my apparel,” Paul said. “Just for me and just how I feel on that day. Today, it was an American day. Just proud to be an American right now.”
With 25 practices left in training camp, Paul may have just given us a daily post about his footwear and one day where we should keep close tabs on his hands (besides his pass-catching ability).
“Fan Appreciation Day, watch my gloves.”
Could there be a friendly competition brewing between Paul and Griffin III?
