The Washington Redskins on Thursday afternoon hosted 200 members of the military, all five branches, in cooperation with the USO at Redskins Park. They were treated to lunch and the final OTA practice of the week, followed by autographs, pictures and just general conversation.
Robert Griffin III was the final player through the line of excited soldiers but signing that final football and posing for a final picture was not the last good deed of the day by the team’s starting quarterback.
Thursday night Griffin assisted Morgan Assel, a student from Centreville High School, in asking a classmate to prom during a playoff lacrosse game.
Check out this photo gallery for the wonderful reactions from the special moment as Juwaan Espinal, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, accepts Assel’s invitation and enjoys the moment with Griffin.
