RICHMOND — Redskins starting right tackle Morgan Moses has always believed in giving back to the community. On Tuesday at Redskins Training Camp, Moses invited three Richmond-area high school football teams to watch practice, have lunch, and learn about his foundation’s tutoring help.
Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, who declared August 1 “Morgan Moses Foundation Day,” joined Kiddar Capital CEO Todd Hitt in presenting a $50,000 check to the Morgan Moses Foundation.
Moses knows how important it is, having once got a second chance of his own and wants to give that to these students. Moses’ 1.6 GPA in high school wouldn’t allow him to play college football. He was sent to Fork Union Military Academy to improve his grades, a life changing moment for him.
RICHMOND — New Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger has quickly emerged as one of the leaders on this revamped Redskins defense. It’s evident early in camp that he likes to set the tone on the field and his teammates are following.
“I have to bring that because I’m a natural born leader,” Swearinger said on Tuesday. “My mom always told me to lead, not to follow. That’s what I’m doing here.”
Swearinger’s voice is one you can hear a lot during practice, whether it be having fun or trash talking.
“It gets us going a lot,” he said. “If the offense hears me yelling, once they make a play they want to yell too and it’s a competitive thing. Both sides want to compete better.”
