Tue, 24 Jul 2012|
CSN Washington dot com. Another -- I get a chance to do Redskins nation from my hometown of silver spring Maryland but that's where we're at today. One of the final tour stop to the Redskins eightieth anniversary thank you tore the bus left a spurt we were in front of the front of the a little while ago. Erupted sober straight earlier today and plays sixty the order of the day for this portion of the residents thank you tour. These First Lady is where -- -- against Charles then we'll hear from him later also Dexter -- we will hear from him letter. But with the as the kick -- -- -- Salzburg Redskins snapper. And before we talk about training camp you've done a lot of these plays sixty events you seem to know what to say that hits what is special about these events. Honestly I think it's just. But being active with such a big part of my upbringing and -- you know it's nice -- to pass that along with some kids and and you know we came. Seems. There outlook on being active and even in the slightest way than we've you know we've done our job today. The NFL's play sixty program has been around for quite a long time. And have you been shocked ever along the way with all the appearances you made at some of the conditions of the facilities and this -- here is just beautiful. You know what -- in your run into a situation where kids that -- the proper tools to work out. Definitely have. -- got a couple schools where. You know we -- -- gym but it was a quarter this guys you know and the kids just you really weren't into it very much you know took a while took a little bit us you know. -- and on the trying to get him to to have a little fun and this is phenomenal like I mean this is excellent and I mean this wasn't nearly negro was that. Now we had a cabin and log cabin that we used to work out and now training camp is just that but they're two way depend on when you're watching this edition of Redskins nation. What did you do in the weeks leading up to camp. I worked out in Phoenix Arizona ice worked out Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday and -- also monitor that there's a -- I have a set of pads and a helmet back momentum that was snapping McGee. -- used to. There's always a transition win it would be a long snapper you know going from no pads for five months. Didn't thrown in a training camp where you gotta Wear pads every day so I took the last five weeks the snap in the pads so there is no transition period for me. In the heat of Arizona they say it's a dry heat right. That's what they say yeah but -- -- -- -- arena while I was there and it was still 150 degrees and then really muggy so. I tried to use that thing to prepare myself for this weather. Does the long snapper. You don't have to go through all the eleven on eleven and seven on seven's solid a citizen ever get boring to you but does that ever get won't. The hill and had no you know usually we've got grants that in the celeb -- around there was us two very training camp so. And you know Danny Smith always does a good job -- keeping us busy and keep us on our toes so we don't we don't usually get bored. Thousand snapper you know your your crew almost -- is making it perfect every time -- -- that pressure. Are you don't think about it. -- -- -- I mean let's look you know that's why practice is much that you muscle memories of crazy thing and once you are are able to display body take over into California there's -- it takes -- out of pressure. You're Dexter Manley or her Charles and then you saw Charles man do his bit about his fingers in the Super Bowl ring of sacrifice. And assume that's pretty good deal that. That's a pretty good deal I think Andy -- -- two -- the past few years but. I'm not trying to to chatter and a cool idea that I mean that dexterity a little bit. So guys then obviously the kids here do RG three was everybody in town the anticipation. Ottawa since overwhelming does it feels good but it is certainly off the book one of the girls locker room thing I think there's just. A different level of excitement around the locker room like everybody. I wanna say the expectations are higher but everybody's. Just really really looking forward to getting started you know we we all. We know -- I'll do expects. A lot from everybody on this team because we have been together furcal for a couple of years now we we do wanna see more. And then with Robert coming in that really changes thinks the world just extremely extremely excited he's starting get back to practice. That'll -- blind -- by a basketball or football squad final looking around. ID you know what you're doing here today. Not yet but -- I think gonna do the -- and relay here a little bit we got to dress up like a hug and do chicken dance and and then after that you know. I wanna say that next suburb on millions you do make a lot of these appearances on behalf the charitable foundation. Very active in the community and a lot of people don't know what it looks like so take a look at -- that's the risk is snapper and X number thanks buddy at their figure much from him.
