As a student of App and a life long redskins fan I was excited to see our football program win a national championship this season (div-1AA). With that being said I was also hoping that the few seniors we had graduating one would get a shot to play on the greatest NFL team there is and ever will be. Well I was reading on our athletic web page that we invited either Richie Williams, The player who carried our offense to the championship and has more heart than any player I’ve seen, or Arthur Orlebar a key back up on our defensive line last season. The article never actually specifies which player, I assume that its Olebar because we are set at the QB position, but he could be groomed into a good back up for JC after a few years in NFLE and on the Practice squad. So my question is does anyone know which one got invited to mini-camp, personally I’m hoping for Williams because he can make plays and under the right coaching I think he could be a very good backup QB.

oh and here is the link for the article i was reading

BOONE, N.C. — Former Appalachian State University standouts Richie Williams and Arthur Orlebar have been invited to participate in minicamps with the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins, respectively,


Orlebar was a key backup along Appalachian’s defensive line for two seasons at Appalachian after transferring from Wake Forest. The 6-3, 275-pound Sterling, Va. native played in all 26 games during his two-year ASU career and made 51 tackles, including 8.5 for loss and 4.5 sacks. He also recorded an interception, a forced fumble and a pass break-up.
