Redskins Players Make Special Visit To Inova Children’s Hospital

“Being with Vernon Davis and walking in the rooms, I mean everyone knows who he is. The parents are just ecstatic, it just brightens the whole room up. It’s an awesome feeling."

The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation partnered with Inova Children’s Hospital to surprise patients and their parents with visits from Redskins players on Tuesday.

The players distributed Redskins gear and toys to the children, and took photos with them and their families.

In attendance were Vernon Davis, Matt Flanagan, JP Holtz, Arie Kouandjio and Jeremy Sprinkle.

“The biggest thing is the smiles on their faces when you walk into the rooms. Just to see the joy on their faces,” Holtz said. “I know a lot of us have kids ourselves, it would be terrible to see them in that position and it just brightens our day being able to see their smiles and their faces.”

Holtz added that being paired with Vernon Davis for visits helped him make an even bigger impact on some of the families. Davis is one of the more recognizable players, having been in the league for 13 years.
