After practice Wednesday morning quarterback Robert Griffin III went out of his way to spend some quality time with one of the Redskins’ biggest fans, 99-year-old Georgia Poole. Poole, who proclaims herself to be the Redskins’ biggest and oldest fan had high hopes of meeting the star quarterback and even joked with him about his injuries last season. RG3 who was evidently humbled by their meeting later took to Twitter after their encounter. Met a lady, who happened to be a redskin fan, today who is 100 years old. Long life is truly a blessing — Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) July 31, 2013 Griffin seemed honored to be considered her favorite player and later on in their conversation Georgia even told RG3 to “be careful now…don’t be hurt no more now” and Griffin responding with “you got it, understood.” Daunting her burgundy and gold, Poole had a day she will never forget because of a selfless act by RG3.
