“I can’t believe I’m where the Redskins works out,” remarked one athlete as he walked through the weight room at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

“I know this is awesome,” responded one of his teammates.

The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation on Saturday, celebrated local NFL Flag Football teams through special tours of the team’s facilities and more.

These teams — which represented NFL teams in Arizona at the Super Bowl from Virginia Xtreme Football, Virginia Xtreme Sports and Arlington NFL FLAG — were given certificates signed by President Bruce Allen while Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, read off the names of athletes.

As he pointed to different moments of Redskins history, Allen told the athletes that team is in their corner.

“The Washington Redskins are rooting for you, and we hope you have a great future,” he said.

Called up team by team, the players on the Washington Redskins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans took group photos together.

Then the fun of seeing where their idols spend their days began.

From the television studio to the training room and even seeing the team’s three Super Bowl trophies, the athletes got a first-hand look at Redskins Park.

Will Page of the Vikings, who won the championship for their bracket, hearkened back to the moment the team won the biggest game.

“It was big time because it was win or go home,” he said. “So everyone came together and played hard and we ended up going out on top.”
