Props to Washington Redskins quarterback, Robert Griffin III on this story. He helps Centreville High School Student Morgan Assel invite classmate Juwaan Espinal, who suffers from cerebral palsy to prom. “@TheBuzzeronFOX: . @RGIII helped make a prom proposal very special. http://t.co/X25eK7LtXr pic.twitter.com/dgJKWqzuRi” great story all around. — Justin Spengeman (@jspenge) May 30, 2014 Espinal is a big fan of RGIII, so being the wonderful guy he is, RGIII helped Assel surprise Espinal with an invitation to their prom. Not forgetting to add some humor to the invitation, the banner read: I know I’m not as cool as RGIII, but will you go to the prom with me? The look and reaction from Espinal, who is non-verbal due to his illness, was pure overjoy. Aw. I just love these stories, especially when there are so many sports figures causing trouble.

Santana Moss: 'Ain't too much changed'

The lack of another receiving weapon for years left Santana Moss without much help. Or without anyone to deflect attention. That’s changed the past couple years, though, so, too, has Moss’ role. And there’s even more talent now. “It’s fun to be around all these guys,” Moss said, “now that I’m much older. But there’s no age. When you’re out there you’re out...

Potential Washington Redskins Name Changes

The Washington Redskins recent tweet directed at United States Senator Harry Reid got us thinking here at Sportsnaut. What if they were forced to change their name by some outside force?

In an attempt to take a comedic stance on the issue, we have come across a few different...

Kyle Shanahan: Johnny Manziel is “very similar” to RGIII

When the Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III in 2012, there wasn’t much pretense about making him fight his way into the starting quarterback job.
