Redskins Kids Club Tackles Mini-Combine

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 22, 2014 – 2:28 pm

While NFL prospects underwent a gauntlet of drills at the NFL Scouting Combine Saturday in Indianapolis, more than 100 members of the Washington Redskins Kids Club ran through a mini-combine at the team’s indoor practice facility in Loudoun County, Va.

Tight end Niles Paul waited at the 7-yard line with football in each hand and told his receiver to score. A girl in neon rainbow-colored leopard socks reached for Paul’s pass as she dove onto the cushy red mat in the end zone and completed the final stage of an obstacle course.

 

 

On the oppose end of the Redskins Indoor Training Facility, long snapper Nick Sundberg crouched to the turf and demonstrated the three-point stance he wanted to see before telling two boys to put their hands behind the 40-yard line.

“I’m just going to give you a ‘Set, go.’ SET. GO!” The boys began their 40-yard dash.

On the sideline to Sundberg’s right, Joshua Morgan smiled through abdominal planks, bridges and crunches with a group of kids. On the other sideline, a boy in a gray T-shirt readied for the vertical leap.

“Are you going to jump over the whole thing?” a volunteer asked.

The boy laughed, lept and nudged a marker 93 inches high.

Before cycling through the mini-combine, the Kids Club members began with a period of stretching and warm-ups directed by voulnteers from Commonwealth Orthopaedics, the official Orthopaedic and Physical Therapy Partner of the Washington Redskins.

At the begining of the event, orthopaedic physician and hand specialist Frederick Scott spoke to Kids Club members about the importance of exercise and a healthy diet. Surgeon Eddie Lane preached the necessity of thorough stretching and immediate treatment for injuries.

Scott’s daughter turned 4 years old Saturday. Before she was treated to a clown, cake and balloons, she got to play with professional athletes.

“This is something that’s very important both short term and long term,” Scott said. “The Redskins are the role models.”

“It’s very exciting to get  a chance to interact with them and spend time with them to promote healthy habbits… and instill a positive attitude about fitness.”
