One of the first things that I noticed upon my return to Redskins Park this morning, is that the 2010 Redskins Homecoming photograph had been updated with a fresh 2011 Homecoming shot.
The photo (which is much higher quality than my picture of a picture through reflective glass) features 78 Redskins alumni, taken on the field in the southwest end zone before the 49ers game. This was the second year for the Redskins Homecoming game, part of a concerted effort to re-engage the Redskins Alumni with the organization.
But if you look closely at the center of the picture, you’ll see one individual that isn’t reliving the glory days. That would be George Starke, Jr., riding in an infant pouch strapped to his namesake’s chest:
This was the first Homecoming photo that featured Hall Of Fame linebacker Chris Hanburger, and hopefully the group will continue to grow in coming years. And if George Starke, Jr. learns how to block for a Redskins quarterback like his old man, he may earn his way into another photo in about 50 years.
