Richmond, VA (August 15) – Washington Redskins defensive end Ricky Jean-Francois beat the heat on Sunday and took the time to show his appreciation for young fans that braved the elements to watch the team practice on one of the hottest days of 2016 as the summer comes to a close.
For the second consecutive year, Jean-Francois rented a Kona Ice truck and hosted a snow cone giveaway for more than 1,000 kids who were in attendance at Bon Secours training facility for the closing day of Redskins training camp.
“It’s been so hot out here that I wanted to repeat what I did last year and do something special for the kids,” said Jean-Francois, who had 25 tackles and two sacks last season.
“I remember how much fun we had visiting the ice cream truck when I was little. So since our dedicated fans came out here in the heat to watch us practice, I wanted to make sure our younger fans knew that we really care about them. It’s a token of my appreciation, and I hope everyone had a lot fun.”
