The Washington Redskins have built a legacy of good running backs. That legacy begins with Larry Brown. Brown was the first Redskins running back to gain more than 1,000 yards in a single season. He achieved that feat twice in a career that ran from 1969 to 1976. Read More.........
Larry and Washington Redskins rookie safety, Chris Horton met in the Comcast SportsNet suite during the Giants - Redskins game recently at Fed Ex Field. Chris is out for the season with a injured foot. Even though it was a blowout game for the Giants, Larry entertained the suite guest with great stories from when he played the game.
I believe I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to play this sport professionally and my contribution to the game was a way of confirming decisions made by others that I was the right person for the job.
I hope that my involvement has had a positive impact on the lives of many youths in the area.
