In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Washington Redskins revealed a Spanish language version of their fight song, “Viva Los Redskins,” which was written by two fans.
Throughout the Sunday’s game, the Redskins celebrated the diversity of their fan base with several pregame and in-game tributes:
1. Before the game, the team played the Spanish version of the Redskins fight song, “Viva Los Redskins!“
2. The Junior Redskins Cheerleaders performed a Hispanic-themed routine during the halftime show.
3. Also on the field, Guillermo Enrique Lopez received the NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Award, recognizing the contributions he made in the community. Lopez has been on the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Bobby Mitchell Hall of Fame Golf Classic Committee that has raised over $7 million for LLS since the tournament’s inception.
Included in the Redskins’ celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month was the debut of their “Redskins en Español” website created in partnership with Univision Interactive Media. The new site has the same features as the English version.
