With education budgets in Washington D.C being cut there are very little resources for high school football programs. Many of these high school football programs suffer from old equipment and tattered jerseys.  Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon knows what its like to have less.  He grew up from humble beginnings and attended Division III Mount Union.  He struggled and fought to get in the NFL and he wanted to provide for young up and coming football players.  While negotiating his endorsement deal with Russell Athletic, Pierre Garcon made it a point to include a provision that allowed him to donate jerseys to local high schools. Roosevelt, Jefferson and Springbrook High Schools all received new jerseys from Pierre Garcon and Russell Athletic.  He made it a point to deliver them in person and meet the the young players.  Pierre provided them with even more inspiration and gave them confidence going into this season. One young player uttered “You look good, you play good.”  We can only hope these jerseys inject some excitement into this season for these young players and hopefully lead to more wins.
