Alexander-Fletcher Community


Washington Redskins linebackers Lorenzo Alexander and London Fletcher today were announced as the NFL Players Association’s annual PULSE Award winners for outstanding work in the community.

Alexander and Fletcher were voted by their teammates during annual NFLPA locker room meetings and received monetary donations for their foundations or a charity of their choice, according to the NFLPA.

Alexander and Fletcher will also be eligible to submit applications for the Byron “Whizzer” White Award, the highest honor the NFLPA can bestow on a player. The award was established by the professional football players of America to “acknowledge a debt of gratitude to one of their own, Supreme Court Justice Byron Raymond “Whizzer” White—scholar, athlete, patriot, humanitarian and public servant.” The NFLPA presents this prestigious annual award “to the player that is just as dedicated off the field as he is on the field.”

Both Alexander and Fletcher are very deserving recipients of this year’s NFLPA Pulse Awards.

VIDEO: Redskins ‘Sword Fight’ At Event

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 11, 2012 – 5:03 pm

When you’ve got balloons, a couple dozen kids and a few really big football players who still want to be kids, havoc is sure to set in.

That’s what happened today at the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation’s “Covered for the Holidays” coat giveaway at the Macy’s Metro Center in downtown Washington, D.C.

Several Redskins players — including Fred Davis, Doug Worthington, Joshua Morgan, Alfred Morris, Logan Paulsen and Sav Rocca — came to the event on their day off to help the area school children get their coats.

But some of them just couldn’t help it when they saw balloon animals being made at the event, and before you knew it, chaos broke out.

It started as just a couple of kids battling it out with Worthington and Morgan before Davis got involved. And then Morris jumped in and was absolutely mauled.

It was terrific to see all the smiles on the kids’ faces, which is, I’m sure, what makes it worth it for these players to do things like this on their day off. Kudos to all involved for such a great event.

Robert Griffin III says he won’t reflect on his record-setting rookie campaign until after the season, but when his awards directly benefit the community, you can bet the Redskins quarterback will appreciate that fact immediately.

That was the case today, when Griffin III was named the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week, an award that comes with a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players’ names to their local offices of Junior Achievement.

It’s the second time Griffin III has won FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week award, so that means he’s sent $4,000 to the Washington, D.C., Junior Achievement office just based on his top-notch performances.

The FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week distinction was the third award Griffin III has won this week alone. Read more »
