SEEN AND HEARD AT REDSKIN PARK

Lots and lots of people were at Fan Appreciation Day - more than 28,000 according to a release the team put out. That breaks the record set in 2004 for Joe Gibbs’ return. Fans encircled the practice fields, even sitting and standing five and six deep on the sideline of the far field. There were plenty of fans who were also still out on Loudoun County Parkway and Waxpool Road while the scrimmage was going on. People parked at nearby business complexes and walked to the park. The parking lots opened at 11:30 a.m., but the release said cars starting lining up before sunrise.

QUOTABLE

“I’ve never seen this many people here. This is fantastic. Our bus got here at 11 [a.m.] and people were already lined up to get in the building. This is a lot to live up to.”

- Ethan Albright on the record crowd at Redskin Park
