In the midst of college bowl season, The Redskins Blog will be highlighting the games that current Redskins players will likely be monitoring.

David Amerson will be paying attention to:

St. Petersburg Bowl — NC State vs. UCF — December 26, St. Petersburg, Fl.

Amerson played three years with the Wolfpack (2010-12) and had a breakout freshman year, acquiring 50 tackles.

It set up his standout sophomore year, where he set an ACC and NC State single-season record with 13 interceptions, second-most in FBS history.

His efforts on defense also earned him the Jack Tatum Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back.

The cornerback was part of two bowl victories in his freshman and sophomore seasons.

The Redskins drafted him in the second round during the 2013 NFL Draft. His first professional interception was returned for a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Week 4 of that season.

Steve Beauharnais will be paying attention to:

Quick Lane Bowl — Rutgers vs. North Carolina — December 26, Detroit, Mich.

As a true freshman, Beauharnais played in all 13 games for Rutgers, starting the final three games at linebacker recording 36 tackles and five sacks. He started at middle linebacker for the next three years and finished his senior season with the third-most tackles on the team.

He was named captain by his teammates in 2012 and was a semifinalist for the Butkus award, given to the nation’s best linebacker.

The Scarlet Knights went 1-1 with Beauharnais in bowl games, winning the Pinstripe Bowl against Iowa State in 2011 before losing to Virginia Tech in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

The New England Patriots drafted the linebacker in 2013 in the seventh round but was used infrequently. After a series of cuts and signings, Beauharnais has found a steady home with the Redskins.

Check back throughout the next few weeks for more bowl games and player history.
