On Sunday night, eyes were glued to Hollywood as the 85th annual Oscar awards grasped the spotlight for many across the globe.

The Oscars recognize some of the best cinematic performances from the past year and winners receive an ever so sweet,  golden man statuette. It isn’t quite a Lombardi, but I hear it’s important.

Behind the glitz and glamour of the pageantry,  however, a very different golden object shined the brightest: A pair of burgundy and gold socks made famous by the starting quarterback for your Washington Redskins, No. 10 Robert Griffin III!

NFL.com released its “All-Under-25 Team” listing  the best players under the quarter century mark in age at each position.

Washington has some of the best talent under the age of 25 as quarterback Robert Griffin III, running back Alfred Morris, offensive tackle Trent Williams, and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan are incredibly talented players in their early 20’s.

Believe it or not, however, the only Redskins player to crack the list was Williams.

Russell Wilson got the nod at quarterback, LeSean McCoy and Doug Martin at the running back slots, and Aldon Smith and Von Miller at the outside linebacker positions.

While we don’t want to take anything away from the players that have been selected to the list, we want to show you why Griffin III, Morris, and Kerrigan deserve to be included on the “All-Under-25-Team”.

Check out some of the statistical comparisons at each position…

Today marks a special day for one member of the Washington Redskins.

This individual is relatively new to Redskins Nation, as he has only been part of this historic franchise for less than a year. His impact in his stint so far has been nothing short of amazing.

He is a former Heisman winner, the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, a Pro Bowler, a captain, and the creator of the 2012 sensation known simply as “Griffining”.

The man of course is none other than quarterback Robert Griffin III!

Robert was born on February 12, 1990 in Japan to a military family, but spent the majority of his upbringing in Texas where he attended Baylor University before hearing his name called by Commissioner Roger Goodell as the Redskins had selected him to take the reigns under center.

In case you can’t remember all the birthday…

This year’s draft is as important as ever for the Redskins to build on this year’s success. It’s important to add key pieces so that the team can continue to make positive strides without taking any steps backwards.

On Saturday, quarterback Robert Griffin III wrapped up his phenomenal rookie campaign winning the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year award over fellow first-year studs Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson.

The award is just icing on the cake for the quarterback. He smashed his way into the record books the moment he put on his number 10 Redskins jersey.

In his professional debut in New Orleans, he tossed a pair of  touchdown passes in a 40-32 victory over the Saints. He capped off his season leading the team to its first NFC East title in 13 years.

He amassed 20 touchdowns, 3,200 yards, and a 102.4 quarterback rating  through the air along with 815 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in 15 regular season games.
