A track and football star, Darrell Green made great use of his exceptional speed. Green was able to cover receivers from the line of scrimmage, eliminating the short pass, confident that his speed would allow him to recover on deep patterns. In track & field, Green set numerous national and conference records enabling him to earn ten All-America certificates. On the football field, Darrell was a first-team All-America in 1982 and was the Most Valuable Player in the Lone Star Conference. His speed and tenacious play earned him a place on the conference team of the decade for the 1980's. Selected in the first round of the 1983 NFL draft, Green played an amazing 20 seasons with the Washington Redskins. With the Skins he was a member of two World Championship teams, earned all-pro notice seven times, and was named the NFL/True Value Man of the Year. In retirement, Green founded the Darrell Green Youth Life Foundation which creates opportunity for children living in insecure environments. He also served on the boards of many other community organizations.
