New Field Excites Park View Athletes

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on April 22, 2014 – 1:09 pm

Sam Onyeador (left) thinks a new field will help the school’s athletic programs rise

The student athletes at Park View High School said their old multi-sport field isn’t bad, but it has its blemishes.

Sophomore Joy Hogarty said the grass in Sterling, Va., gets a little “choppy” at the beginning of girls’ soccer season. Freshman linebacker Nikolai Hopkins said rain completely changes the makeup of a football game. Sophomore Connor Hotaling said snow drove the football team into the gym for practices, which affected the Patriots’ conditioning.

These issues should subside by the end of 2015, when construction of a new synthetic, multi-sport field is scheduled to complete thanks to a $1,000,000 funding partnership between the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, the NFL Grassroots Field Grant Program and the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors.

Posted by Redskins.com on March 25, 2014 – 1:48 pm

In Dan Snyder’s letter announcing the creation of the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, the owner wrote  about his commitment to “listening and learning from all voices with a perspective about our Washington Redskins name.”

To accomplish that goal, Snyder and his staff launched a fact-finding mission that led them to 26 Native American reservations across 20 states.

They sought input from 400 Tribal leaders throughout Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

General Manager Bruce Allen: ‘It Is My Job To Find The Next Head Coach’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 30, 2013 – 3:22 pm

Brucehand

Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen had a “painful” day he said was fitting for a “painful” season.

Allen met with Owner Daniel Snyder and Mike Shanahan at 9 a.m. Monday morning to relieve Shanahan of his duties to the franchise. The GM met with assistant coaches throughout the day, then addressed the media four hours after the dismissed coach made a statement.

Allen stressed that that every member of the organization had a part in a 3-13 season. He spoke to the media about how the franchise has begun its search for a new head coach, what the criteria for that position will be and what the club will learn from a regular season full of distractions.

He talked about how the world of sports lends itself to instant evaluation, how to create stability and how NFL teams can complete quick turnarounds.

The Redskins relieved Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan of his duties Monday, a day after Washington lost its eighth straight game and finished the 2013 season 3-13.

Here’s a look at Shanahan’s tenure by the numbers:

24-39 - Shanahan’s regular season record as head coach of the Washington Redskins.

0-1 - Shanahan’s playoff record with Washington.

38 % - Shanahan’s win-loss percentage with the Redskins. Compare that with a 62% mark in Denver. Read more »

Dan Snyder Gifts Jones Redskins Van

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 1, 2013 – 6:05 pm

Dan Snyder handed Charles Jones a $20,000 check, clapped him on the shoulder and gripped his hand.

When Snyder heard Jones’ story, how the 55-year old veteran escaped his life as a homeless man with help from his Redskins-themed 2001 Ford E150, the owner was moved to action.

On Friday afternoon, Snyder greeted Jones at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va., to personally deliver payment for the van that would help Jones clear his debt. Then he told Jones, “the van is yours.”

“Your story really touched my heart,” Snyder said upon meeting Jones.

Check out the full rally gallery here. Or rallerly, if you prefer.

The rally in Dallas two weeks ago was the biggest Redskins road rally ever, setting a benchmark that would not soon be equaled.

But it only took two weeks to be exceeded.

Tonight in Denver, Colo., the Washington Redskins hosted the biggest road rally ever, welcoming more than 500 fans into The Tavern Downtown, and treating fans to another visit from Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder and his wife Tanya. They were joined by general manager Bruce Allen, alum Chris Cooley, Rick ‘Doc’ Walker and Clarence Vaughn, as well as Larry Michael, voice of the Redskins.

It was a big night for Redskins Nation as the fight song was sung, stars were welcomed and solidarity was cemented with Redskins Pride. Here’s a full run down of the evening’s festivities, as seen on the Redskins’ social channels. Enjoy:

Dan Snyder Helps THINK PINK! Reach Milestone

Posted by Redskins.com on October 20, 2013 – 5:08 pm

On Sunday, Dan Snyder and the Washington Redskins hosted their annual Breast Cancer Awareness game at FedExField against the Chicago Bears.

The Redskins were one of the last teams in the National Football League to host a home game in the month of October, but were the first to bring awareness to the cause back in 1999.

Tanya Snyder, wife of owner Daniel M. Snyder, used Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October of 1999 to oscillate knowledge to the Redskins fan base in hopes that it would spread across the league.

Now, 15 years later, the NFL is a leader in bringing awareness to a cancer that affects one on every eight women. In 2013, awareness is as prominent as ever.

Throughout the month, Redskins players are wearing pink colored accessories to include gloves, cleats, compression sleeves and decals.

The focus goes well beyond the gridiron, though.

Mrs. Snyder, a breast cancer survivor herself, made a concerted effort to use the attention the NFL receives to help both those who are battling breast cancer and alert others to get checked on a regular basis.

“In 1999 Dan Snyder bought the Washington Redskins [and that] was the beginning,” Mrs. Snyder said. “We became involved with the Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) sorority. The Northern Chapter came and made a proposal to hand out pink ribbons, hence THINK-PINK!  began within the league.”

On Sunday, members of local ZTA chapters and CareFirst passed out over 51,000 pamphlets with THINK-PINK ribbons and breast health tips such as scheduling mammograms.

In 1999, the Redskins passed out 8,000 ribbons. On Sunday, they passed out their 5 millionth in front of a sellout crowd that wore the ribbons proudly over their Redskins gear.

“You take it one ribbon at a time, one ribbon at a time, one game at a time year after year and we’ve gotten there,” Mrs. Snyder said.

Before the game started on a sunny afternoon in Landover, Mrs. Snyder was joined by her husband, Dan Snyder; Sherry Tilley, Vice President of Philanthropy for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, and ZTA members in passing out ribbons to fans both entering the stadium and already inside watching warmups.

Standing out amongst the burgundy and gold scattered throughout, Tilley pointed to the amount of pink as symbolic of the growing support.
