DC Skins 2010 Training Camp: the first day

It was a momentous afternoon in Virginia. The Mike Shanahan era began with a day of meetings and a light scrimmage. Football is back, praise Gibbs!

Of note: Terrell Davis, Steve Atwater, Chris Samuels and Michael Pittman are coaching interns for the Skins this year. It's through the Minority Coaching Fellowship and I'm damn excited to have these stars helping my team. If this were still the Cerrato era, we would have signed them all for billions of dollars.

FS Chris Horton apparently had the hit of the day, breaking up a reception. He is trying to regain the position he lost due to injury. The battle for FS is the only serious competition in the defensive backfield.

RB Larry Johnson, who grew up as a Skins fan in the area, continues to sprint to the end zone on almost every run. I think he is taking the competition at RB seriously.

DT Albert Haynesworth, who failed his fitness test and did not play, was nonetheless well-received by fans.

Finally, a fan proposed to his girlfriend with the help of TE Chris Cooley, who produced the ring out of his athletic cup. Or something like that.

Will every moment of meaningless DC Skins fluff be "reported" on this site? Stay tuned!
