Landover, Maryland- The Redskins’ season opener game has finally arrived. No one could not be more excited than wide receiver, Pierre Garçon. Garçon battled with a foot injury that hampered him for the bulk of last season. Fully healed for the season opener, Garçon is happy to be healthy for his first season opener.
Along the sidelines on Monday night’s game was the Ambassador of Haiti, Paul G. Altidor and several Haitian representatives from the local community. As Altidor stood on the sidelines watching Garçon play, he was ecstatic to see how great of a player he was. Garçon was happy to receive the support from the Haitian community, especially from Ambassador Altidor. “It was a fun and great experience to have Ambassador Altidor support me at my first game” stated Garçon.
Garçon is one of a few Haitian-American athletes to play on a professional level. When the Haitian community sees one of their own doing great things in and out of the field, it is important for them to support one another. Garçon’s accomplishments on the field have demonstrated himself to be a positive spotlight to the Haitian people.
Dr. Marlene-Saint Phad Shaw one of the Haitian community members stated, “I hope Pierre continues to keep doing what he is doing and I wish him a successful season”.
Now that his toe is hundred percent Garçon will be able to come back this season stronger than ever. When Pierre is on the field the odds of Redskins winning is much higher. Garçon finished the game against the Philadelphia Eagles by catching seven passes for 64 yards.
Stay tuned as we continue to cover Garcon’s success this season.
