Don’t let the October-like temperatures during the Fourth of July weekend fool you, it will more than likely be hot when the Washington Redskins open up training camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond on July 24.
CSN Washington’s Rich Tandler joined Larry Michael, Voice of the Washington Redskins, on the set of “Redskins Nation” to talk about the impact of the heat and the difference in team attitude with first-year head coach Jay Gruden at the helm.
ABOUT THE REDSKINS: Headquartered at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, and owned by Daniel Snyder, the historic Washington Redskins Football Club has won five World Championship titles including the 1937 and 1942 National Football League Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with seven others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snydersince 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
