Doc Walker Casts The Evil Out Of Hatcher

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 15, 2014 – 9:00 am

DSC_1522

Rick “Doc” Walker put on his shaman hat, which in this case was a burgundy and gold ballcap.

Jason Hatcher was feeling the love in his first trip to Redskins Park, but Walker could sense the blue corruption inside of him. Hatcher’s avatar was a Redskin, but his flesh and blood held onto the evil. A baptism was in order.

Rick ‘Doc’ Walker On Jay Gruden: ‘We’re Talking About A Football Junkie’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 14, 2014 – 12:53 pm

doc

In 1993 and 1995, Redskins Radio Network broadcaster and former Redskins tight end Rick “Doc” Walker covered Tampa Bay Storm quarterback Jay Gruden in the ArenaBowl. Last week, Walker sat down with me at Redskins Park to talk about Gruden’s career hours before he would be introduced as Washington’s head coach. He commented on the coach as only he could. (The following interview has been edited and condensed).

Gabe Hiatt: What do you remember about calling Jay Gruden’s games in the AFL?

Doc Walker: He was a quarterback for Tampa Bay and also ultimately a head coach. They had an excellent team. He was highly competitive, smart and a good player, so it was fun. I’ve watched him go from player to coach to assistant coach to coordinator. I’ve watched his entire career, and it is interesting when I heard he was named here. That’s full circle for me.

Fans Rally Around Redskins In Dallas!

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 13, 2013 – 12:58 am

DSC_0009

Outside of the greater DMV area, one of the strongest hotbeds of Washington Redskins support has always come from deep in the heart of Texas.

That may come as a surprise to fans outside of the Lonestar State–what with the Dallas Cowboys and all–but the Burgundy and Gold Fan Club of Dallas, Texas has a great following and throws some of the best Redskins rallies worth looking forward to every year.

This year’s event was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., but the Redskins setup team (including your’s truly) was greeted at the door by dozens of fans when they arrived at quarter to 5. By 5:15 there was a steady stream of fans through the free T-shirt line, and by 5:30 it was downright crowded in the bar area.

By the time the Redskins celebrities arrived at 6 p.m., the fans had already maxed out capacity of the restaurant and the 400 free “Live It” T-shirts at the door were long-gone. Gazing outside, there was a line of Redskins fans waiting patiently on the sidewalk to get into the bar.

That’s when the real fun began, as Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, accompanied by his wife Tanya Snyder, came to the party, joined by general manager Bruce Allen, former players Chris Cooley and Rick ‘Doc’ Walker, and voice of the Redskins, Larry Michael.

A good time was had by all, and here’s a social recap of the night’s festivities:

PHOTOS: Redskins Rally In Pittsburgh

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 27, 2012 – 8:10 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It sure was nice to see some burgundy and gold tonight in a city dominated by yellow and black.

The Washington Redskins got into Pittsburgh this afternoon for their matchup tomorrow against the Steelers at Heinz Field, and a crew made its way to the Buffalo Blues restaurant and bar in nearby Shadyside tonight for a Redskins Rally.

We had an awesome crowd full of Redskins fans, and joining them were Redskins general manager Bruce Allen and former tight end and ESPN 980 personality Rick “Doc” Walker. The fans also received free Redskins towels and took part in a raffle that gave away tons of signed items and tickets to tomorrow’s game.

As usual, we’re always amazed by the amount of Redskins fans in each city we’re able to travel to throughout the season. Thanks so much for the support, Pittsburgh!

Wilson Describes Character, Football Style

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 9, 2012 – 5:00 pm

Redskins cornerback and DMV native Josh Wilson appeared at his second community function of the season, today’s “4th And Life” high school football forum at FedExField (alliteration intended).

Wilson had the opportunity to share his unique perspective on high school football, considering he came from the same playgrounds and weight rooms as many of these student athletes.  The former DeMatha product remembered the glory days of his team’s state championships, but also shared some far more humbling stories as well.

Wilson said he wasn’t always the polished professional that takes the field on Sundays.  Back when he played under Friday night lights, he learned how to be a respectful gentleman.

“Character is ‘the type of person that everyone sees you as.’ It’s not just who you believe you are, or who you want everybody to think you are,” he explained.  “You can sit here and say that you’re this type of player or that type of guy, but if nobody takes you seriously, then you aren’t who you say you are.  And if you’re the most talented person on the team, but I don’t trust you on the field, then that’s because you aren’t who you think you are.

“You’re not accountable, you don’t take care of the details.”

Wilson recalled two times in high school that he was benched for a lack of respect to the team, his peers and himself. Read more »

Annual Mickey Steele Outing A Success

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 18, 2012 – 1:30 pm

Redskins’ alumni, current players and executive vice president/general manager Bruce Allen were present Friday for the eighth annual Mickey Steele Celebrity Golf Tournament.

The tournament is named in honor of Mickey Steele, a Maryland native, sports enthusiast and business owner, who in 2004 lost his battle to Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).

Former Redskins Present For First Practice

Posted by Brian Tinsman on May 4, 2012 – 4:22 pm

Even though today’s rookie mini-camp was technically closed to the traditional media, staff members from ESPN 980 and the NFL Network were present on the sidelines, hobnobbing with the coaches and training staff.

Those are the spoils of being a former Redskins player-turned-media personality.

Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Theismann and Hog tight end Rick ‘Doc’ Walker were the face of the glory years in Washington, and have a personal interest in seeing it return to form.  That’s why both made an effort to be out on the field for the first practice of Robert Griffin III, and they shared a lot of their thoughts with Redskins Nation’s Larry Michael: Read more »

Doc’s Orders: Scouting The Senior Bowl

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 24, 2012 – 7:26 pm

via NFL Network

In 2011, the Redskins joined most coaching staffs in Mobile, Ala. to scout the nation’s best four-year collegiate stars.  From there, they used six-of-12 draft picks on Senior Bowl participants, including the first three in a row.  This was more than any other team in the NFL.

Here’s the graphic on the six, as seen this afternoon on the NFL Network’s coverage of the Senior Bowl:

Girl Scouts Get Zumbatomic With Redskins

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 17, 2012 – 2:25 pm

This past weekend’s NBC4 “Health and Wellness Expo” was an opportunity for people in the greater metropolitan area to come out and celebrate the fairly self-explanatory topic of health and wellness.

One of the more entertaining events of the weekend was the Zumba presentation “Zumbratomic,” coordinated by the Redskins, Sport&Health and The National Kidney Foundation (NKF).  Redskins players Lorenzo Alexander and Reed Doughty were  at the expo as spokesmen for the NKF, and joined Redskins cheerleaders, emcee Rick ‘Doc’ Walker, and area Girl Scouts for some Zumba.

Redskins Rally Kicks Off In Dallas

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 25, 2011 – 7:57 pm

The Burgundy and Gold Fan Club of Dallas has officially kicked off their Redskins Rally at Champps Americana in Irving, Texas.  If you’re in the area, there’s plenty of time to come out here and see Doc Walker, Larry Michael, (me, of course), and a whole host of other familiar names in Redskins Nation.

I have never seen this many Redskins-clad, burgundy-blooded fans outside of the DMV.  What a great crowd!

The emcee began the festivities by saying, “I understand that there are still some Dallas fans here as we begin tonight, so for them, I’ll talk really slow.”

A roar of delight went up from the Redskins faithful, and people got in line for a free “Beat Dallas” T-shirt.  If you’re in the area, come get your shirt before the run out!

See you out here:
