Redskins Players Thank Richmond For Hospitality

Posted Aug 12, 2014

After a successful three weeks of training camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center, Redskins players thanked the staff and fans for their support.

After three weeks of training camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Va., the Washington Redskins are returning to Northern Virginia tonight.

By all accounts, this year’s training camp was a success, as the players bonded as a team, the coaching staff had their first extensive on-field time to work on implementing schemes and perfecting technique and the community was greatly impacted. 

“This has been a great experience once again in Richmond,” Redskins President and general manager Bruce Allen said. “I think we ought to start with thanking some people and staff. Mayor [Dwight C.] Jones and his staff did a great job for us. Gov. [Terry] McAuliffe’s hospitality and enthusiasm was great for us. Bon Secours’ staff did fantastic job again.

“Our Charitable Foundation really had a great two or three weeks here… I wanted to thank Coach [Bill] Belichick and the New England Patriots for coming out. That work was invaluable for us from an evaluation standpoint. I think the way we managed the crowds was a lesson that we learned from last year. ... It was great for the fans and the players.”

Head coach Jay Gruden had nothing but positive responses as well when asked about Richmond’s hospitality.

“Everything was first-class, first-rate – from the practice fields to the way they kept them up to the facility inside here,” Gruden said. “Everything was clean and kept-up. Everything was very, very efficient – transportation, the hotel was excellent.

“There’s not one complaint…The workers were great. The fans were excellent.”

In total, 164,789 fans came out for training camp – an average of 10,986 fans per day.

Thanking the fans for their support while also looking ahead to the next stage of preparations, here’s what some of the players said on social media today about their training camp experience in Richmond. (Note – click on Instagram photos for complete captions.)

 

The players have a scheduled day off Wednesday before re-starting training for Monday’s game vs. Cleveland at FedExField on Thursday.
