Disks of fried dough can jumpstart even the gloomiest of mornings. They can absorb the most tortured breakups, or even lessen the sting of a day sitting in jury duty or the DMV. When you’re not eating your feelings, you should be chowing down on the city’s best donuts anyway because they’re damn delicious. New openings over the past two years have made DC’s donut game better than ever -- but you will have to visit the 'burbs to try some of the leading contenders. These are the DC area’s eight ...

For the last few years, tight end Vernon Davis has kept peripheral vision on his future, which means during the offseason he’s been slowly and surely making a footprint inside the media industry.

Last Friday night at the Regal Majestic in Silver Spring ... Read More

Newly signed linebacker Nico Marley continued his mini press tour on Thursday when he joined NFL Network’s "Good Morning Football" to talk about his emotions joining the professional ranks.
Before he could get in a word, host Kay Adams dropped a little tidbit about Marley's father, Rohan, that makes Marley’s decision to sign with the Redskins all that more meaningful.
“Growing up in Jamaica, [Rohan] wasn’t very familiar with American football and he had a satellite and there was one team that he watched, and that team was, in fact, the ... Read More

While at Longview, Williams was a unanimous first-team All-District selection as a senior and earned first-team All-East Texas and second-team Texas all-state.
This came on the heels of a second-team all-district selection as a junior.
