AP Image The go-to line for players volunteering for a good cause, is that they are “giving back to the community.”  But because players are from all over the country (and Canada and Australia), not many can say that they’re truly giving back to their own community. And then there’s DMV native, Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson, who helped organize food for today’s “Harris Teeter-Redskins Harvest Feast,” presented by Ryan Homes. “For me, growing up in the area, this is an opportunity to give back to my community,” he said with a broad smile.  ”This is a community where I know the people.  I lived where they live.” “It’s important to to give back to the people that are less fortunate, because at one point in my life, I was one of those people.  Now that I’m in a position where people look up to me from a football standpoint, it’s important, and it’s fun to give back.” Follow @TheJoshWilson@TheJoshWilsonJosh Wilson Man terrible weather….but everyone make they remember
