Endearing himself to Redskins Nation through his versatility and commitment to Redskins success, James Thrash was a fan favorite during his nine seasons in Washington.
In total, he accumulated over 1,500 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while also being a stalwart on the special teams unit.
While he put in the time to make sure he performed on Sundays, his work didn’t stop once the final whistle blew on his career.
On Wednesday, the Redskins alum was recognized for his public service by the Jefferson Awards Foundation.
The longest standing and most respected organization that dedicates its work to community empowerment, the Jefferson Awards Foundation honored Thrash and four others for their “selfless, noble and compassionate work” to improving the lives of those in need and contributing to the “larger good.”
Here’s more from the Jefferson Awards Foundation’s press release on Thrash:
After 12 successful seasons as a wide receiver with the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles,
James Thrash became head of player development for the Redskins. This role ignited a passion for
him to serve the current, as well as, former players. This passion led him to his current role, working
for the NFL in player engagement.
Thrash currently spends his time motivating and inspiring people. He speaks to school groups on the
importance of leadership and character and teaches life skills to youth and adults. Thrash also sits on
the board of the Good Shepherd Alliance and the Salvation Army. He is a supporter of the “Love
Project”, a project that actively seeks out to meet the immediate needs of those in Loudoun County, Va.
