Dexter Manley, Gary Clark, Ken Harvey and Ricky Ervins certainly gave it their all each and every time they took the field for the Washington Redskins, so they were more than happy to spend some time on Saturday with hundreds of locals willing to give something, themselves.
The four Redskins alums were special guests at Saturday’s Inova Blood Donor Service’s blood drive at the team’s indoor practice facility in Loudoun County, Va.
Those who came out to give blood on Saturday were treated to photos, autographs and smiling faces from the former players, who talked about the importance of such an event.
“Donating blood is something that you don’t think about until you need it and sometimes you don’t realize how valuable it is until you need it,” Harvey told Redskins.com. “Hopefully no one does, but if you do, these people are real heroes because they’re taking the time to donate blood.”
