On Saturday, quarterback Robert Griffin III wrapped up his phenomenal rookie campaign winning the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year award over fellow first-year studs Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson.

The award is just icing on the cake for the quarterback. He smashed his way into the record books the moment he put on his number 10 Redskins jersey.

In his professional debut in New Orleans, he tossed a pair of  touchdown passes in a 40-32 victory over the Saints. He capped off his season leading the team to its first NFC East title in 13 years.

He amassed 20 touchdowns, 3,200 yards, and a 102.4 quarterback rating  through the air along with 815 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in 15 regular season games.

Griffin III was instrumental in revolutionizing Washington’s offense. He was the catalyst of a top five unit that led the league in rushing with 169.3 yards per game.

While Robert rightfully deserved the accolade for his accomplishments, football is the ultimate team sport. He is just one of 53 men who make up the Washington Redskins on game days.
