Darrell Green, former Washington Redskins’ cornerback and member of the NFL Hall of Fame, comes to the University of Mary Washington with plenty of goals as a special assistant for student athletes, and none of them are football related.

The National Football League (NFL) kicks off its season tonight with defending champions, the Baltimore Ravens, taking on the Denver Broncos. The Ravens were the toast of the NFL last year, but that did not convert the Fredericksburg area. The local fans prove this is still Redskins country.
