A fan lived out his dream.
Football fans dream about playing for their favorite team and leading them to victory. The Disney movie Invincible, was about an Eagles fan who got to live his dream and play for the birds to the north. Well this week at the Redskins informal mini-camp, fans got to live their dream and play ball with the Redskins.
When linebacker London Fletcher asked a small group of fans in the bleachers at the Redskins’ informal workout whether they had “brought their stuff,” Richards was the only spectator who had come prepared.
The 28-year-old laced up his cleats and participated in individual drills with the the Redskins’defensive backs. He only dropped one interception on his first go-around.
“Growing up, the Redskins were my favorite team, so just to be out there with them was a lot of fun,” said Richards, who said he played defensive back at Robinson High School.
