Perry Riley Jr. Talks Father, Future

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 11, 2013 – 11:30 am



Linebacker Perry Riley Jr. opened up to ESPN’s John Keim about a number of issues including changing the nameplate on his jersey, his basketball potential and his future position in a Friday Conversation segment.

An ascendant player, Riley Jr. started all 16 games for the first time in his career last season, ranking second on the team with 129 tackles in 2012. He’s on a pace to surpass that mark with a team-high 38 stops through four games.

With Keim, Riley Jr. talked about honoring his father by affixing the extra “Jr.” to his jersey. The linebacker had discussed the thought with his father before, but he didn’t tell his dad his plans. Instead, Riley Jr. waited for his father to see the change on TV against the Eagles.

“My mom said he cried… It caught him by surprise and my mom said he got emotional. That made me happy,” Riley said to Keim.

The 2011 award could have gone to a number of players that make up the core leadership of the Redskins, but the recipient was the most-deserving of them all.  Presenting the award on behalf of the media, was long-time beat reporter John Keim of the Washington Examiner: Read more »

Niles Paul Has A Believer In Former College Coach

Posted by Ryan Gracia on June 13, 2011 – 12:05 pm

Intern Ryan Gracia checks in with some highlights from one of several quality Niles Paul interviews with the Examiner’s John Keim.

From the looks of it, Niles Paul seems destined to quickly win the respect of his teammates, fans and coaches once training camp finally comes around.

Ted Gilmore, who coached the receivers at Nebraska during Paul’s four-year college career, has a good feeling Paul could be “an absolute steal” for the Redskins come the start of the season. There are things that fans know about Paul from what they see him do on the field and what they hear about him in the media.

But what some may not realize is that the wideout has all the characteristics to be a great player, besides the obvious on-field capabilities. He’s got great work ethic, competitiveness and confidence to name a few. Simply put, he loves the game — and it’s all put into perspective by Gilmore in an excellent recent interview with John Keim of the Washington Examiner. Here are some of Paul’s lesser-known qualities, highly praised by his former college coach:
