The Women of Washington Redskins on Tuesday hosted their third Ladies Night Out of the season. The event gave attendees a chance to gear up and play football with some Redskins. Those who came also brought presents to donate for “Toys For Tots” and wrote holiday cards to active duty serving overseas.
After rotating through stations inside the Indoor Practice Facility — including flag football, passing drills and field goal kicks– the ladies ended with an equipment demonstration and Q and A session with punter Tress Way wide receiver Andre Roberts and tight end Niles Paul.
Pat Coleman, one of the team’s equipment managers, talked about his maintenance responsibilities taking inventory for the team as three models tried on this season’s uniforms with help from the players.
“We have to stay on top of our game,” Coleman said to the crowd. “If we slip up then everything is messed up.”
Coleman, who prepares six footballs before each game, also mentioned how much he enjoyed the job because it allows him to travel all over the country with the team and see big cities he would never have the opportunity to experience.
Then the questions were directed towards the players.
Paul said his pregame superstition is always getting his neck and back cracked while Roberts admitted he gets his ankles taped with three strips of black tape instead of his regular two at practice. As for postgame meals, Way wasn’t shy to admit that he and his wife often drive to Taco Bell.
“We just crush it,” Way said jokingly.
Way also had some fun with a football.
