Morris, Cousins, Polumbus Attend International Justice Mission Event

Happy Birthday, Alfred Morris!

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris, quarterback Kirk Cousins and tackle Tyler Polumbus, along with their three wives, attended the annual International Justice Mission fundraising event Thursday night.

IJM, a non-profit founded in 1997 and led by Gary Haugen, seeks to bring justice to countries with residents living in poverty. The theme of Thursday’s event focused on impunity, an issue affecting areas who have corrupt or lack of police authority in which criminals don’t suffer the consequences of illegal acts. For Cousins, who has attended each of the last three years, the cause is an important one.

“It’s an organization I like to spotlight because I just think they do a really good job of really maximizing their resources they have to make a real difference,” Cousins said. “I keep in touch with them year round.”

When Cousins was a rookie, Polumbus, who had been an active member and donor to IJM previously, asked if he’d like to join him at his table in an effort to fill some of empty seats. Cousins, who already knew about the organization from his days in high school, jumped at the opportunity and was delighted IJM had its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

“It’s an amazing organization that my wife and I have supported for six or seven years now,” Polumbus said. “They work with anything from sex trafficking to people who are wrongly imprisoned, or shouldn’t be imprisoned, and land grabbing cases. This is all across the world. Truly, I think they’re one of the most powerful and influential organizations in rescuing people out of situations that are terrible.”

Cousins vowed in high school that IJM would be the first charitable cause he would donate towards, once he had the resources. Now, he attends and gives to the event yearly, and is hoping he and his wife can someday travel abroad to India, the Philippines, or Central America to experience how IJM works in the field.

“IJM seeks to bring justice by going in there, investigating undercover, and prosecuting [criminals] so when their consequences are brought to the surface, hopefully it will not only free a few people but it will create a culture of change, of justice, and a lack of impunity,” said Cousins, who might pursue similar kind of work once his football career ends.

“When I come face to face with it is when I’ll really be moved.”

Tyler Polumbus Continues Community Outreach Effort

Despite being undrafted, Washington Redskins offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus is a seasoned NFL veteran with experience blocking for elite quarterbacks and running backs. Polumbus’ ascension during his “day job” is one that should be applauded and continually thanked for by the players he keeps safe.

But it’s the work he does away from cameras and reporters that he and his wife, Liz, have been thanked by from those in need.

Six years ago, the Polumbus family started Tyler’s Kids Outreach (TKO) to give back to various communities and individuals in need.

Started in Boulder, CO, the organization has assisted many in the Washington, D.C. area. On Saturday, in partnership with the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and Dreams for Kids, TKO will continue their philanthropic efforts at Redskins Park with a football camp for developmentally and physically disabled youth.

Celebrating National Pancake Day With DY

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 4, 2014 – 6:05 pm

pancake

Pillowy breakfast sponges for butter and maple syrup are delicious, but we’re celebrating a different type of pancakes today.

In football terms, a pancake is a block that results in a defender flattened on his back. You can watch fullback Darrel Young dish out the delicacy in the following video.Read more about Young’s booming hit in Atlanta here.

Adam Carriker, Aldrick Robinson Call Florida State Over Auburn For BCS Title

When No. 2 Auburn went up, 21-3, on  No. 1 Florida State in the first half of the Vizio BCS National Championship Monday night, defensive end Adam Carriker looked like a man who should stick to pro wrestling analysis.

With 00:13 left on the clock in Pasadena, Calif., Carriker looked like Nostradamus.

FSU Heisman Winner Jameis Winston completed a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin to cap off the two-minute drill and win the game. Roberto Aguayo’s extra point made the final score 34-31.

Before the game, Carriker predicted a score just one point shy of what transpired.

Robert Griffin III Thanksgiving Musts

The pie is so good you have to hide it.

London Fletcher couldn’t tell me why Jackie Griffin’s sweet potato pie is so good, only that if I got a chance to try it, I’d understand. And if he gets some, he’s not sharing.

Robert Griffin III brought Fletcher some of his mom’s famous pie for Thanksgiving last year, and the quarterback told the linebacker he’d try to hook him up this year, too. Read more »

Redskins Halloween Social Roundup

While you were double-fisting candy and escorting your own group of witches, vampires or comic book super heroes last night, the Redskins could relate.

Bye Week–That Time To Catch Up

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 4, 2013 – 12:18 pm

The rumors are true–not much football related activity happens during the Bye Week.

The players had been going non-stop since the start of training camp in July and with the mandatory week off from team related activities, they’ve been staying pretty busy away from the gridiron.

Just a few short years ago, we would have had no clue what they were up to unless we snapped them out and about on a disposable camera. Thankfully that’s where Twitter comes in.

Here’s what they’ve been up to starting with veteran defensive end/seldom tweeter Kedric Golston:

From College To Pros: Suh Connections

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 19, 2013 – 2:26 pm

(AP Image)

(AP Image)

In the weeks leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft, Ndamukong Suh became a certainty for the second overall pick held by the Detroit Lions. The St. Louis Rams were a lock to acquire Heisman winning quarterback Sam Bradford and  Lions head coach Jim Schwartz wanted to make another big splash after nabbing University of Georgia gunslinger Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009.

They did just that as the first domino fell as expected to St. Louis and they were able to pick their guy—a 6-4, 307 pound defensive lineman who had just won AP College Player of the Year, was a unanimous All-American and voted as the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik awards recipient.

While Sunday will mark only his second career NFL game against the Washington Redskins, he isn’t an unfamiliar face to seven guys on the offensive side of the pigskin that have some sort of connection to Suh from college ball days.

Who are they?

Tyler Polumbus Ready To Score For Good

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 6, 2013 – 10:47 am

(AP Image)

When right tackle Tyler Polumbus re-signed with the Washington Redskins in March, he admitted that he had some unfinished business here.

A starter for all 16 games last season en route to paving the way for the league’s top rushing attack, Polumbus has vowed to dedicate this season to Scoring for Good, a program designed to provide children the opportunity to attend Camp Kessem.

Camp Kessum’s mission is to “provide children affected by a parent’s cancer with a supportive, lifelong camp community that recognizes and understands their unique needs” and has various sites set up across the country.

For every five pancake blocks that he will score this season, Polumbus will donate money to Scoring for Good.

While fans probably won’t be able to contribute via pancake blocks, they can track Polumbus’ progress all season long and donate along the way as well.
