Highlights From Inaugural Burgundy and Gold Game

On Sunday, Washington Redskins tight end Niles Paul and Darrel Young were on the other end of instruction on the football field.

The pair served as coaches in the inaugural Burgundy and Gold charity football game at Woodrow Wilson High School featuring Redskins Cheerleaders. Proceeds from the game will benefit the Global Down Syndrome Foundation.

Video and photos from the game:

Young’s team (burgundy) would eventually win the game, as they found a way to hold of Paul’s team’s second half adjustments of running more misdirections.

And seeing as he was coach of the victor, Young got the traditional ice bath from his players.
