Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is taking every opportunity he can to both show his appreciation to this country’s military members, as well as give back to the communities that helped shape him into the person he is today.
The 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year is donating his “Special Edition Camouflage Cleat” to his alma mater, Copperas Cove High School.
“A ton of military families live in that city because it is right next to Fort Hood,” Griffin III told Redskins.com. “I always remember where I came from, so we (Adidas and myself) wanted to gift these to the football program.”
In an Instagram post on Monday, Griffin III wrote:
On this day of remembrance, we never forget where we came from. For that reason, I am sending these Special Edition Camouflage Cleats on their way to The Copperas Cove Football Program! A town with a military back bone!!! I wear them to honor our soldiers! I pray you will accept this gift and wear them to honor them as well. Love You & Thank You
