Redskins Host 742nd Battalion At FedExField

Posted Apr 2, 2015

Well before most people were awake Thursday morning, the 742nd Battalion of the U.S. Army was at FedExField for Physical Training

While most people were getting in their final minutes of sleep Thursday morning, the 742nd MI Battalion of the U.S. Army was taking over FedExField for a special physical training session.

Shortly before 6 a.m., the soldiers, many of whom admitted they were fans of the team, arrived at the home of the Redskins before falling into ranks to start two hours’ worth of physically taxing work.

After getting their bodies ready through a series of stretching drills, the soldiers performed various sprinting and running exercises including three 100-yard dashes.

But, while those runs were typical of what they experience daily on base, they had the chance to play both ultimate frisbee and a modified version of ultimate frisbee with a football. Something no other active duty can say they’ve done.

Towards the end of the physical training session, the soldiers took one lap around the stadium by running through the lower bowl.

Check back with the Redskins.com for more from this event including interviews.
