This is some extremely high praise by the longtime NFL signal-caller.
Derrius Guice was drafted by the Washington Redskins with the 59th pick of this year's draft. The running back was a star performer at LSU, and it's widely accepted that he only fell to the second round because of concerns about his character.
So far, Guice has been taking those concerns and stiff-arming them into oblivion. Not only has he raised thousands of dollars for cancer research, he has also connected with fans through various methods, such as live streaming video games like Madden. And he continues to impress his teammates with his dedication and fun-loving nature.
Perhaps the most impressed of all is new Redskins quarterback Alex Smith.
