After Brandon Banks revealed to the world that he was a lefty with a gadget touchdown pass against the New England Patriots, it piqued my interest in the left-handers on the team.
It turns out that lefties comprise 15 percent of the population, but are a brilliant class of people. There are many famous lefties, including four of the last six presidents, Joan of Arc, Alexander the Great, and Bart Simpson.
With the help of Redskins.com’s Jessica Monaldo and receiver Anthony Armstrong, I identified the southpaws on the team, and sought to find out what makes them so brilliant.
I began my search with Banks, the man who inspired my mission.
Banks’s world-class speed is well documented, and vision allows him to find creases in the coverage, and accelerate upfield. Although rarely used, he also has the type of game-changing speed on offense that forces defenses to respect all that he can do.
