Keep former Washington Redskins Sean Locklear in your thoughts.

As explained on a Caring Bridge page, Locklear’s son Zane was at his grandmother’s house last week when he found access to a pool and was found later unconscious.

“A neighbor, who happened to be a nurse, responded to shouting and immediately started CPR,” the site writes. “Paramedics and police arrived and continued to administer CPR, which continued until they arrived at the hospital. After approximately an hour they got his pulse back, which was the first hurdle. They conducted two CT scans and found a small amount water on the brain and eventually transferred him to UNC Chapel Hill Hospital by helicopter. His temperature was quite low from the pool water, which is good in this bad situation as it keeps the swelling down in the brain. They kept this temperature low for the first couple days and then have progressively brought him back to a normal body temperature today. He continues to give us hope and inspiration through each foot movement or eye flicker. Thank you all for your prayers.”

Early this morning, an update was posted with MRI results:

“We got the results back from the MRI and they don’t look good. Zane is not in a coma, so there’s no “waking up” in his situation, he is simply not responsive due to his brain injury. This is not good news. Please pray for a miracle at this point. Yes, God can work miracles and we are still believing… Zane is STILL fighting. Paxton is doing well and will hopefully arrive this week.”

To get more on Zane’s status, we encourage you to check out the Caring Bridge page.

Priscilla’s Balancing Act Between Cheerleading, Working And Being A Mother

Priscilla’s life goes pretty much non-stop.

Between being a Washington Redskins Cheerleader and the DC Territory Business Manager along with serving as the mother to a young boy in the first grade, she doesn’t have many opportunities to pump the breaks and just take it easy.

But, if she’s ever in need of a quick breather, her support which she calls her “triple threat” is always there.

“My directors, Stephanie and Jamilla, have always been understanding about my multiple roles and when I’ve had to miss a practice,” she said. “I’m blessed to have bosses who are so supportive of my commitment to this team, and always wishes me a good practice or best of luck before gameday weekends, and, most importantly, I’m very lucky that I have my family, who continues to encourage my participation with the team, and are nothing but happy for me when it comes to all the amazing opportunities that come along.”

Last year, which also happened to be her first year as a Redskins Cheerleader, Priscilla began looking for different jobs, sensing it was time for a career change.

With a B.S. in marketing along with a background in sales, she eventually landed her current job as DC Territory Business Manager.

“While I didn’t have any direct experience in pharmaceuticals, or even in outside sales, I had a proven record of unwavering determination,” Priscilla admitted. “My boss was very impressed with the fact that I had never danced, cheered, or had any background that would help me in becoming a professional cheerleader, prior to the year and a half before I made the team. This prime example was what helped rest his concerns, and gave him the confidence to hire me.”

And along with balancing her duties between the Redskins and pharmaceuticals, Priscilla is raising a son who is currently in the first grade.

As he continues to get older and advances further in school, she realizes her role as his parent will continually change as well.

“My role has evolved in his life to where I not only have to ensure his safety and well-being, but now I have to teach him how to do that for himself while enabling him to learn and embrace the characteristics that will help shape him into a good person,” she said. “Every single day involves helping him develop these traits, teaching him to recognize the difference between right and wrong and requires turning almost everything into a life lesson. …It has and will continue to be a wonderful journey watching my son grow up to be the man he is supposed to be.”

Former Redskin Eddie Mason Releases New Book About Overcoming Adversity

Eddie Mason, an eight-year NFL linebacker who finished his career with the Redskins, has made a second career by serving and mentoring others.

The founder of MASE Training, a strength and fitness facility in Sterling, Va., Mason has devoted himself to helping with outreach projects for his church and currently works as the Director of On-field Operations for the NFL Legends Community.

Now, he is an author.

“Training For The Tough Game Of Life,” Mason’s new book, explores his trials as a football player and his discovery of a “playbook” for overcoming the adversity we all face in life, using spiritual and biblical values to guide his instruction.

The decision to write this book was with one thing in mind; to bring about change in the heart and mind of people, regardless of their past,” Mason writes on his website. “Every day, people deal with emotional baggage that ends up causing them to make bad choices, as a result we are all in need of guidance to learn how to make the right calls in the game of life. I wanted to give a clear view of how life itself is no different than the game I used to play as a professional athlete.” 

Mason recently promoted the book with an event at a local church in Ashburn, Va., last weekend. In an excerpt from the book, Mason writes:

“God still expects us to continue to grow and raise the standard. Much of the standard is about our own personal, mental, emotional, and spiritual development, but the greater purpose is in being an example for others. It is about taking our lives, learning from many of the bad calls we have made, and seeking out game plans to show us how to play it better.”

In his four seasons with the Redskins, Mason played mostly on special teams but compiled 33 tackles combined in his final two seasons as a linebacker.

Now he’s devoted his life to working with other players and kids in need of leadership and advice.

Today’s the day for thousands of soon to be collegiate student-athletes.

Throughout the country, big-time college football recruits will sit down in front of a bevy of cameras, perhaps have a few school hats to choose from, and pick where they want to spend the next few years.

It wasn’t too long ago that many of the current Redskins were in their shoes.

Below, with photos of the guys as — for the most part — clean-shaven teenagers, we have a look at where they received offers:

The identical colors. The good smiles. The strong handshake.

This is a solid pose with legendary quarterback Joe Theismann.

The former Redskin was recently in Arizona making his rounds throughout Radio Row the week preceding the Super Bowl and has now returned to Washington, D.C.

The lucky fan in the photo has a Twitter history that’s littered with Redskins love from this past season, too. It’s clear he’s passing on his fandom to his kids and now can share with them his special photo with one of the greats.
