Eddie LeBaron’s Stories of Service

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 11, 2013 – 3:44 pm

On Veterans Day, I dug through the file cabinets at Redskins Park to research the history of one of the most accomplished military service members to play for the franchise, quarterback and Marine Corps vet Eddie LeBaron.

I found the above picture of George Preston Marshall sitting with LeBaron in uniform along with some faded press clippings.

LeBaron earned recognition for courage before he began an 11-year NFL career. At 5-foot-7, the man known as “the Little General” earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for service in Korea from 1950-1952. He signed a contract with the Redskins in 1950, but was called to active duty shortly after graduating from the University of the Pacific.

The following accounts of heroism come from a profile of LeBaron published in the Dec. 6, 1959 issue of Classmate Magazine.

Young’s Army Brother Saw First NFL TD

In honor of Veterans Day, ESPN’s NFL Sunday Countdown did a special featuring highlighting the relationship between Washington Redskins fullback Darrel Young and his older brother David, a member of the US Army.

It’s become so easy these days to associate terms such as “battles in the trenches” and “football is a war” with the sport, but as younger brother Darrel admitted, all he does at the end of the day is try to help a football team win a simple game.

What David does goes well beyond his daily duties as a fullback.

As he did last Sunday when he scampered into the end zone on three different occasions, one of Young’s biggest contributions is penetrating a defense failing to locate him on sneak attacks.

On November 15th, 2010, the undrafted linebacker turned fullback scored his first career touchdown on his first offensive play of the game.

It was literally a touchdown heard around the world.

A Look At Fletcher And Brooks

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 11, 2013 – 10:03 am

London Fletcher

Last Thursday in Minnesota, London Fletcher started his 208th consecutive regular season game, tying Tampa Bay stalwart Derrick Brooks for the most by an NFL linebacker all-time.

Brooks, who retired after the 2008 season, was one of 126 nominees for induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced in September. The linebacker is a solid bet to be a first-ballot member of the hall.

With Fletcher one game away from breaking Brooks’ record for consecutive regular season starts, let’s compare the decorated career for both players.
