Redskins Trick-Or-Treat At Pediatric Hospital

Posted Nov 6, 2012

Hurricane Sandy could only keep Redskins players from paying a visit to their biggest fans for so long, as they visited the Georgetown Hospital Pediatric Unit on Monday.

Hurricane Sandy could only keep Washington Redskins players from paying a surprise visit to some of their biggest fans for so long.

On their Monday off day, six Redskins players  went trick-or-treating at the Georgetown University Hospital’s pediatric unit, visiting children diagnosed with serious illnesses. 

The event was coordinated by the Redskins Charitable Foundation, who supplied costumes for the players and Redskins treats for the kids.

The visit was originally scheduled to coincide with the hospital’s annual Pedatric Halloween Party on Tuesday, Oct. 30, but was postponed after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast that afternoon.

Nevertheless, Redskins Ryan Kerrigan, Eric Kettani, Joshua Morgan, Alfred Morris, Niles Paul and Josh Wilson showed up for their visit on Monday dressed in costume, carrying plenty of candy to hand out to the children.

They formed a motley group that included two vampires (Kerrigan, Kettani), Captain America (Morris), Michael Jordan (Morgan), Super Mario (Paul) and Fred Flintstone (Wilson).

“This is just awesome,” Morris said. “They children are going through various reasons why they’re here, and to have a chance to brighten their day and get a smile on their face, that means a lot.”

Morris’s costume was selected via a Redskins fan vote on social media, beating out options of Popeye the Sailor, the red Angry Bird and Batman.

“I’m having fun and getting into character,” Morris said, telling each child that Captain America loves them. “I’m enjoying it and I know the kids and everybody around us is enjoying it just as much as I am.

“It’s cool to be Captain America.”

Kerrigan enjoyed playing Dracula, but gave Morris credit for the group’s best costume.

“It’s got to be Alfred,” Kerrigan said. “But Josh [Wilson] is a close second with Fred Flintstone, especially with the feet he’s got.”

The second-year outside linebacker said he was happy to provide the children with an experience he took advantage of when he was a youngster.

“It’s really fun to get out here and get to spend some time with kids, especially kids that didn’t have the same opportunity to go out on Halloween like I did when I was a kid,” Kerrigan said. “It’s cool just to be able to come out here and see the looks on the kids’ faces when we come around — especially when we’re able to bring candy to them.”
