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.

Days like this put everything the Redskins—players, coaches staff and myself included–do in perspective. Without the continued service of David and the rest of our servicemen and servicewomen around the clock at home and abroad, we wouldn’t be able to do the things we do.

While today will always be about thanking them for their service and sacrifices, every day we should continue to thank them for all that they do.

    Darrel,

    Thanks for all your support of the military. Love your brother and all the times we shared in Kandahar, both good and bad. Hope to see both of you real soon. Thanks again and God bless.
