REDSKINS TO HONOR “10 FOR 80” HONOREES AT
SUNDAY’S HOMECOMING GAME


LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins will welcome the “10 for 80” honorees, along with more than 150 other Redskins greats, for the team’s annual homecoming game on Sunday, Nov. 4 against the Carolina Panthers. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.

The team will honor the former Redskins legends in attendance, as well as the team’s 80th anniversary, by wearing their new 2012 “anniversary” NFL Nike Elite 51 football uniforms. The uniforms are a modern interpretation of those worn back in 1937 - a year signifying the team’s move from Boston to Washington, D.C., as well as their first National Championship.

The homecoming celebrations will feature an alumni parade with the Redskins Marching Band and Cheerleaders, which will begin at 10 a.m., the annual alumni group photo and the introduction of former players and coaches in attendance.

The “10 for 80” honorees announced at the Welcome Home Luncheon will also be honored at halftime. The honorees, LaVar Arrington, Bobby Beathard, Joe Bugel, Terry Hermeling, Jon Jansen, Roy Jefferson, Richie Petitbon, Clinton Portis, Chris Samuels and Sean Taylor, will join the 70 Greatest Redskins named in 2002 to complete the 80 Greatest Redskins of All-Time.

Alumni expected to attend include Ron Saul, Rick “Doc” Walker, Mark Rypien, Mark Moseley, Bobby Mitchell, Dexter Manley, Sam Huff, Darryl Grant, Chris Hanburger, Ken Harvey, Len Hauss, Gary Clark, Jeff Bostic, Mike Bragg, Larry Brown, Pat Fischer, Sonny Jurgensen, Charley Taylor and George Starke amongst others.

In addition to Sunday’s game, other alumni events include the alumni community giveback and the annual alumni reception, both scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3. Redskins’ alumni will team up with the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation to give back to the community by building a new playground at a District Alliance for Safe Children (DASH) housing complex.

Redskins homecoming weekend is the culmination of the team’s year-long 80th anniversary campaign to celebrate the Redskins’ rich history and talented alumni.

Highlights from the celebration include the 80th Anniversary Thank You Tour and tour bus, fans voting for the “10 for 80” honorees, alternate uniforms, the 80th Anniversary Kickoff Event in the Redskins Indoor Practice Facility and the team’s annual Welcome Home Luncheon.

Homecoming? Alumni? National Championship?

Sounds like a college football weekend. I suggest we schedule an opponent from Conference USA....or the Big East. :laugh:

I love sports nostalgia as a fan, but this organization seems to continually be looking back to mark any kind of anniversary to sell throwbacks or coins (remember Bruce Smith's sack coin?) or whatever.

How about focusing on the present?

First it was the 70th anniversary team, which was fine as a one time retrospective.

But then there was 75th events. Now it's the 80th.

Instead of looking out for the 100th anniversary down the road, how about we add to the legend by WINNING SOMETHING :)
