Wounded Warriors Take Down NFL Alumni

For Tim Lang, just tossing the pigskin meant so much more than it used to.

Lang planted on his prosthetic right leg and hurled a few passes into a secondary of former professional football players Saturday as his Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team beat a squad made up of Redskins and NFL alumni in a flag football game at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va.

“This is such a huge, significant step for so many of us guys,” said Lang, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps 124 Charlie Co. in Fallujah, Iraq.

“It’s a declaration that we’re okay. We’re all better. We’re not broke. We’re no longer even challenged. We’ve accepted our new life and we’re doing the things we used to do now. We’re loving life now.”

Those are three names that are currently linked to the Washington Redskins across the league as key cogs to the Burgundy and Gold claiming their first division title in 13 years.

While the trio looks to join Redskins greats Sam Huff and Chris Hanburger in the halls of Canton someday, one current Redskin will be joining them on a slightly different list. (Hint—he hasn’t even played a game yet.)

Hall Of Famers Reflect On Time Together

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 7, 2013 – 2:47 pm

Over the last several seasons, Redskins fans have been treated to some splendid play by one of, if not the, best linebacking core in the league.

With perennial Pro Bowler and NFL iron man London Fletcher, 2013 Pro Bowlers Ryan Kerrigan and Lorenzo Alexander, former Pro Bowler Brian Orakpo, Perry Riley, and Rob Jackson, I think its safe to say that the Redskins depth at the linebacker position is simply unheard of.

However, while those six men have been instrumental in limiting opposing defenses for years, they have competition at staking claim as the best linebacking core in franchise history.

Hall of Famers Sam Huff and Chris Hanburger are arguably two of the great linebackers in NFL history and for a four-year stretch in the late 1960’s, they terrorized opponents week in and week out lining up in burgundy and gold together.

Find out what these two former teammates had to say about their reign of destruction together here:

While all of us would much rather be covering practice this week as players prepare for the NFC Championship game, the offseason does offer time for reflection and review.

One of the best parts of working out of Redskins Park is digging through the filing cabinets full of miscellaneous photos, and digging back through the online archives looking for photos with a story.

Not every search yields exciting results, but every now and then a gem turns up of a memory lost in time. Don’t ask me why some of these photos were taken in the first place, but a tip of the cap to whoever decided they were worth saving in public record.

Sam Huff Named ‘Hometown Hall Of Famer’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 13, 2012 – 12:05 pm

via WOWK News 13

Former Redskins great Sam Huff was recently recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance Company as a “Hometown Hall of Famer” in his native Farmington, W. Va.

The program is designed to honor the hometown roots and contributions of football’s greatest players with ceremonies and plaque dedication events in their local communities.

Huff, a five-time Pro Bowl selection as linebacker for the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, was a high school standout in Farmington. The presentation was made on Monday afternoon by Mike Arcure, former manager of Huff’s high school football team.

The ceremony was attended by Huff and his family, along with close friends and teammates from his alma mater’s 1954 Mountaineer Sugar Bowl team.

The ceremony was heavily attended by members of the Farmington community, and deeply touched the football giant (via The Times West Virginian)

Pregame Images And Saluting Sam Huff

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 18, 2011 – 1:09 pm

For as beloved a figure as linebacker Sam Huff was and is in Redskins Nation, it cannot be forgotten that he got his start in the Big Apple, playing for the G-Men.  Walking down the hall of the press box, I had to do a double take on the name and photo, which depicts the type of gritty player that he was, in his day.

Here are the additional pregame shots:

One thing I will say from warmup: if this is a Redskins team that’s destined to be clobbered, they don’t know it.  As a group, this is one of the most focused groups I’ve observed during warmups and they seemed loose and cohesive.  All signs point to a good showing today from the Burgundy and Gold.
