Wounded Warriors Take Down NFL Alumni
Byline: The Redskins blog
For Tim Lang, just tossing the pigskin meant so much more than it used to.
Lang planted on his prosthetic right leg and hurled a few passes into a secondary of former professional football players Saturday as his Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team beat a squad made up of Redskins and NFL alumni in a flag football game at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va.
“This is such a huge, significant step for so many of us guys,” said Lang, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps 124 Charlie Co. in Fallujah, Iraq.
“It’s a declaration that we’re okay. We’re all better. We’re not broke. We’re no longer even challenged. We’ve accepted our new life and we’re doing the things we used to do now. We’re loving life now.”
