SPORTS: RGIII Gets Autographs From Cancer Survivors

Robert Griffin III took part of the Make A Wish Foundation Program on Saturday and asked two cancer survivors to sign his cleats (shown above) and another survivor to sign his practice jersey. Check out what RGIII had to say about receiving the survivors autographs rather then giving them his:

“They don’t expect me to ask them for their autographs…It was more like, ‘OK, cool.’ Down the line hopefully they remember that and say I was their first autograph.”

“When I was growing up I always wanted to meet guys I looked up to, role models…If I’d have met Michael Jordan and he asked for my autograph there would have been a shock. It’s flipping the script a little bit, but I think it means something to them. If I’m their first autograph that’s an honor to me.”
