Wednesday, all across America, is National Signing day, when high school senior football players must make their decisions about where to attend school.

The choice is never particularly easy, however, in the case of Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson, attending the University of Texas was the only option.

In a Longhorns video feature, highlighting former players and their memories of signing day, Robinson reflects on the recruiting process and making his final decision as a senior at Plano East High School.

“It was pretty cool. We did it at our high school. I think my whole team had seven, eight, nine guys that were all committed,” said Robinson. “We were all in the gym and once we were all signing , it kind of became surreal that we were really doing this and that we were signing a step closer to our dreams.”

Robinson admits in the interview that his head coach Mack Brown validated all of the promises he made on the recruiting trail. It made his Texas experience that much more enjoyable and affirming.

Robinson played from 2008-11 and graduated with a degree in applied learning and development. He was a two-time Butkus Award semifinalist, posting 317 tackles for his career while finishing his senior season on the second team All-Big 12 list.

Over the coming weeks, The Redskins Blog will be providing you with a different look at the franchise’s past.

Unlike Throwback Thursday where we’ve looked at important moments on the gridiron against an upcoming opponent, this series will examine some of the lighter moments as we go through all of the photos stored at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

I’m not sure if the Redskins bathroom was a good place to analyze plays and personnel, but it certainly hosted many meetings over the years (remember the coach’s meeting with Joe Gibbs?)

We’re not blessed with much context for these photos, which in many ways makes them more enjoyable.

In this photo, taken Oct. 24, 1971, head coach George Allen sits with his coaching staff and listens to linebacker Jack Pardee address a group of players (including Hall of Famer Chris Hanburger) perched around him, sitting on…whatever they can find.

A few questions.

— Why are they meeting in the shower?

— Why does Pardee get the stool while Allen and the coaches sit on buckets?

— What do you think Pardee is discussing in this shot?

Extra points if you can name all the other players…

Without any background, we’ll just have to believe meetings in the locker room shower were a tradition in the 1970s and 1980s.

Some are just simply back home spending time with their loved ones and going through their own offseason workout plans, while others are overseas spending time with our troops.

Just call Will Compton “Maverick.”

It’s been a pretty spectacular week for he and tight end Niles Paul (don’t call him Goose).

While providing a nice selfie tour of Misawa, Japan, the duo has been visiting active military at various bases as part of Pro Tour Productions.

They’ve gotten to experience the local culture –posing for funny photos as tourists– and interact with servicemen stationed there. Today included trying on some high-tech safety gear and fighter pilot helmets.

Compton even posted a video outside with some troops and gets quickly interrupted by their collective chants.

 

Between him and Niles, there’s a lot of bonding happening. As Compton admits in a post, “selfies for days.”

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Trent Murphy was honored to be alongside some of our troops Monday evening.

Murphy — who grew up in Scottsdale, Az. and attended Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix — was at Luke Air Force Base, where he swapped stories with active duty members and even got a little target practice in:

You’ll notice that these photos come from Murphy’s Instagram account, which is relatively new. Since activating, Murphy has posted a lot of family photos, and, yes, some from his first season with the Redskins:

Go ahead and give new Washington Redskins defensive line coach Robb Akey (@RobbAkey) a follower on Twitter, Redskins fans.

While not every coach in the NFL is a member of the Twitterverse, Akey appears to be a pretty active member, and after it was confirmed that he’s heading to Washington to coach the defensive lineman he tweeted the following:

Akey started his coaching career in 1984 at Weber State, coaching tight ends, defensive ends and linebackers.

From there, he’s been a defensive coordinator for several other colleges and was even head football coach at Idaho for a few seasons.

During the 2014 season, Akey was an assistant defensive line coach for the Minnesota Vikings.

Former Redskin/Idaho alum Mark Schlereth, Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph and Steve Gleason were among those who congratulated Akey on Twitter:
