It’s Time For You To Taste The Rak-Attack

Who is hungry for a delicious, mouthwatering sandwich that will surely kick away the daily two o’clock feeling over the next month?

Washington Redskins linebacker/sandwich connoisseur Brian Orakpo constructed his very own tasty treat, the Rak-Attack, which is at the various Harris Teeter locations across the Northern Virginia area and Washington, D.C. now!

Harris Teeter, Official Grocery Store of the Washington Redskins, had Orakpo in for a visit this afternoon at the Reston store to meet and greet with fans and prove once and for all that he knows more than just sacking scarred quarterbacks—he makes a great sandwich with a little bit of hard-hitting Texas flair that he’s known for.

“It’s one of my favorite combinations to eat,” Orakpo said of his namesake sandwich. “I love making sandwiches. Obviously everyone knows that I love to eat…so it’s always good. Harris Teeter did a phenomenal job putting it together with my favorite ingredients and it tastes good.”

The combination No. 98 is referring to is roasted turkey with Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, pickles, onions, spicy mustard and the afternoon keep me up—jalapeños.

“I like spice,” Orakpo said with a smile in reference to the jalapeños. “Anyway possible I can put any kind of spice in my food; jalapeños always give it sort of a different kick. I have it topped off with a little bit of spicy mustard. It’s a great combination.”

Normally in the NFL Tuesday is a day for players to unwind and give their body much-needed rest between rigorous weeks of training, but for Orakpo, he wanted to give the DMV a little sampling of what his taste buds prefer away from the gridiron.

Hundreds of fans lined up to meet the two-time Pro Bowler, getting an autographed portrait and unforgettable picture with the man himself in the process.

In between chats with Redskins fans, he found himself sneaking in a quick bit—giving in to the craving of another spicy bite.

“This is the best sandwich,” he said after one mouthful in particular where he gave two thumbs up in approval.

Orakpo won’t be the only Redskin, however, to get his own Harris Teeter sandwich over the coming months. Before season’s end, wide receivers Joshua Morgan and Pierre Garcon will have finally finished tasting their numerous created sandwiches before ultimately settling on the best combination.

What will it be? Well you’ll just have to find out for yourself. In the meantime, make sure to stop by Harris Teeter now to try out the Rak-Attack!
