All in the family: Senate honors Redskin who calls member aunt
The Virginia Senate honored a well-known Washington Redskin on Wednesday with a center-aisle presentation of a resolution of recognition.
Football fans know cornerback DeAngelo Hall as the most valuable player of this year's NFL Pro Bowl.
But to Sen. L. Louise Lucas (D-Portsmouth), he is family. Lucas beamed with pride as she introduced Hall to the Senate, along with his wife and baby and her sister, Hall's mother.
After the resolution was read aloud, Lucas walked Hall around the Senate chamber so her fellow senators could shake his hand. "Go Redskins," several told him. "We love your aunt," said others.
A native of Chesapeake who attended Virginia Tech, Hall tied an NFL record in October with four interceptions. He also started a foundation to curb youth violence.
