Final Movember Matchup: Joe Jacoby Vs. Terry Allen

Niles Paul’s roots run deep in the soil of the Cornhusker State.

Before being selected by the Washington Redskins in the 2011 NFL Draft, and before he starred in front of 80,000-plus routinely on Saturdays at Nebraska, Paul attended North High School in Omaha, Neb.

Paul torched the competition, most notably during a senior season in which he caught 46 passes for 814 yards and 13 touchdowns, while also averaging more than 18 yards per punt return.

He was named first-team All-Nebraska while also being selected first-team All-Metro by the “Omaha World-Herald” and first-team Super-State by the “Lincoln Journal Star.”

But, while he was garnishing national attention for his play on the field, few understood what he was dealing with off of it.

Paul’s mother, Majorie, passed away when he was 12. His father struggled with the loss. And being one of 13 kids in the household, they didn’t have much money.

So Paul decided that if he were ever in a spot to give back he would.

Last season, the tight end gave his high school their first set of new jerseys. This season, he gave them a second uniform combo while also giving them new cleats and accessories.

“I knew that once I left that school and I was able to give back, I was going to give back,” he told The Redskins Blog. “I owe so much to that program, Coach Larry Martin and Principal Gene Haynes.

“To show my gratitude, the least I could do was give them new uniforms and have those guys out there have something new. They work hard.”

Another reason he provided new cleats was because he couldn’t afford new cleats of his own during his upbringing, and wanted to make sure others didn’t have to experience the same issues he faced.

“There are a lot of kids in that school who don’t have a lot,” he said. “We all come from less fortunate backgrounds. I played my whole high school career with one pair of shoes and one pair of cleats the whole time, so I just wanted to make sure that everybody didn’t have to deal with the same problem.”

Earlier this week, while wearing the uniforms donated to them by Paul, North won its second-consecutive state title with a 41-0 victory over Creighton Prep.

While Paul didn’t get to see them in action, he hopes to hear of their triumph in-person when he returns to Nebraska.

“I haven’t been back to see them in a game, but the offseason I get to see them and I get to talk to some of the young guys who are still there,” Paul said as he grabbed his Nebraska hat and headed out to watch the conclusion of the Cornhuskers’ overtime victory over Iowa.

The Washington Redskins and Bon Secours Richmond Health System on Friday hosted the first Community Health Harvest for the under-served at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center.

Attendees were provided access to a hot shower, a warm meal, vaccinations and laundry services.

Former Redskins running backs Tim Hightower and Ricky Ervins greeted those in attendance and said the team’s efforts in the community are definitely noticed.

“I’m just thankful to be a part of this event and be able to give back to the community,” Hightower, a Richmond resident, said. “This is the same community that when I came here to the University of Richmond, they embraced me, taught me a lot of things and supported me throughout my collegiate career. Now being back here and living here, its great to be a part of it.”

Dust off your old cassette player to set the mood for this Movember matchup, because it pits Washington Redskins who left their marks during the 1980’s and 1990’s — Joe Jacoby and Terry Allen.

As part of the Washington Redskins’ efforts to raise awareness for men’s health issues during Movember, there will be a running social media contest until the end of the month pitting current and former players who rocked the upper-lip coat against one another.

The Redskins Blog during this month of mustache growth has touched on the importance of several former Redskins who just happened to feel that upper-lip hair was the only facial hair needed.

Of course you can’t talk about the Redskins without mentioning “The Hogs” — a group of now famous offensive lineman including Jacoby.

And during the 1996 season, the last at RFK Stadium, Allen would leave fans with everlasting memories.

Redskins Talk Thanksgiving Traditions, Plans

According to Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the pressure is on quarterback Kirk Cousins to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. According to Cousins, the pressure will mostly be on his wife who is in charge of cooking the turkey.

“I just got married this summer so I guess this will be the first time we’re starting our own tradition together as a married couple,” said Cousins. “Knowing my wife, in only the four or five months that we’ve been married, she’s lived up to the hype. She’s done a really good job cooking. So no doubt, Thanksgiving for her is game day.”

Along with Kerrigan, Cousins will host several other teammates and their wives as well as his own family members.

He’ll try to find some time to peek in on some games, too.

“It should be fun hosting a few of the other guys on the team, have some fun and fellowship and watch some football,” said Cousins. “It’s the 5 “F’s” in Thanksgiving that I love: football, family/friends, fun, good food, and a four-day weekend so I’m looking forward to that.”

Running back Roy Helu Jr. will also be with his wife Thursday after the team finishes practice. He’ll go to his sister’s house and eventually celebrate the holiday at his friend’s while unable to be home in California where he grew up.

“You kind of just adapt and make a lot of food,” said Helu, who promises to watch a lot of football as well. “We haven’t really started a tradition or anything.”

“I like the leg of the turkey, the dark meat,” he added.  “I want to try a deep-fried turkey because I haven’t tried one before. My pet peeve is cold Thanksgiving food. My favorite dessert is pumpkin pie or pecan pie– I switch in between– and cheesecake.”

Tight end Jordan Reed doesn’t plan to have the television on when he makes the trip to his brother’s home in Baltimore. He’ll be happy to lie around, talk to family and enjoy the macaroni and cheese his mother, the specialty cook, will pass around the table.

Kerrigan meanwhile is looking forward to his aunt’s sweet potato casserole and linebacker Trent Murphy expressed his excitement to try the fried turkey long snapper Nick Sundberg is preparing.

Wide receiver Santana Moss will also be with family Thursday, including his kids, whom he hasn’t seen for a while.

“I’m always thinking about the life that we get to live, that we don’t appreciate much,” he said. “I know some of us do. A lot of us don’t. We all complain, but at the end of the day it could be worse. So you’ve got to appreciate and love up your family.”
