Sights and sounds from Redskins fan appreciation day
RICHMOND—Before Saturday’s practice began, Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan addressed the overflowing crowd that had gathered for fan appreciation day.
“Our experience in Richmond has been fantastic,” Shanahan said as fans cheered wildly. “I appreciate your support, your hospitality.”
Training camp is being held at the brand new $10 million Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center for the first time this summer. The agreement between the team and city will bring training camp back to Richmond for at least the next seven years.
“We’re looking forward to a great year,” Shanahan continued. “I think you’ll be proud of our football team, both on and off the football field. We’re going to give you everything we’ve got, I can promise you that, and then some.”
After a loud roar, Shanahan added: “Without any further ado… Hail to the Redskins.”
