Ashley Caldwell: Olympian and Redskins Fan

Posted by Ross Hollebon on January 24, 2014 – 6:02 pm

Ashley CaldwellLoudoun County, Va. native Ashley Caldwell is now a two-time Olympian after being named to the U.S. Skiing squad for the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Now 20 years old, Caldwell participated in the aerials event during 2010 in Vancouver as the youngest member of the entire U.S. team (16 years old), realizing an Olympic dream after combining a childhood of gymnastics and skiing.

She also happens to be a lifelong Washington Redskins fan.

Caldwell has competed in the NFL’s Punt, Pass, and Kick competition multiple times at FedExField and often displays her fandom when she is flying through the sky as a skiing aerialist.

Her skis are decorated with the Redskins logotype and colors as she shoots into the air, twirling, flipping and spinning before making her way back to the ground to stick her landing.

It isn’t often we get the opportunity to sit back as an organization and just be fans, but thanks to Caldwell we will get that opportunity next month.

We look forward to cheering as she competes for gold, and allows us to flip the script for our social media “Fan Fridays” as we cover her journey, provide additional background and exclusive footage from the Games and the moments surrounding them.

Congrats, Ashley! We’re excited to cheer you on and follow you on Twitter @AshleySkis.

The Redskins Ultimate Pro Bowler Frankenstein Sketch

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 4:11 pm

Over the course of a week, we asked you  to stop your typical Facebook piddling and play Dr. Frankenstein (it’s pronounced Franken-steen) to create the ultimate Redskins Pro Bowler.

Your picks are in. Here’s the superhuman you created accompanied by some of the worst blogger-created art you will ever see.

 

PART 1: STRENGTH AND PERSERVERANCE (TORSO)

You chose John Riggins‘ toughness over Sonny Jurgensen’s arm strength, Joe Jacoby’s upper body strength and Russ Grimm’s grit. Riggins went to the 1975 Pro Bowl. Read more »

Maigan Will Cheer For Alfred Morris, Trent Williams And Brian Orakpo From The Opposing Sideline

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 1:21 pm

Although the unconferenced Pro Bowl presented a chance for Brian Orakpo to tackle Alfred Morris – or Trent Williams to block Orakpo – each of the Redskins three Pro Bowlers landed on the same team.

Maigan was not so lucky.

Washington’s 2014 Pro Bowl Cheerleader will have to cheer on the Redskins from the far sideline. In her report from Hawaii, Maigan wrote she was drafted by Team Rice. It was a busy day for Maigan, who snapped a photo with the other cheerleaders from the NFC East, rehearsed a half-time performance and posed for a photo shoot at Diamond Head.

Through it all she’s representing for the First ladies of Football. Read Maigan’s dispatch and check out more photos below. Read more »

A Chaplain Brought Mark Brunell To Washington, And The QB Saved Joe Gibbs’ Life

The first man to recruit quarterback Mark Brunell to Washington was not Joe Gibbs or a front office executive.

During an interview with “The Sports Fix” on ESPN980, Thom Loverro asked Brunell the full story of how he was traded from the Jaguars to the Redskins before the 2004 season. Brunell told the host he knew was on the outs in Jacksonville when the Jaguars spent a first-round draft pick on Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich. His first indication the Redskins were interested came from an unlikely source.

“Actually (I) got word through a friend of mine, who was at that time the chaplain of the Washington Redskins, Brett Fuller,” Brunell said. “And he had mentioned that Joe Gibbs was interested. Immediately, I got excited… I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Just the opportunity to play for him was  a dream come true for me.”
