LANDOVER – Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver Mack Hollins walked off FedEx Field Sunday with a big smile on his face.
Hollins, a Rockville native, said a few words to Eagles teammate Darren Sproles before heading to the locker room after a hard-fought 30-17 road victory over the Redskins in the regular season opener.
“Just a postgame conversation,” Hollins later admitted.
The Montgomery County product was elated to make his NFL debut at “the crib” amongst friends and family members including his parents, Richard and Karyn Hollins.
“It’s always good when family can come to a game and [you] go see them in the crowd,” said Hollins, a fourth-round selection in April’s NFL Draft.
A pair of former Montgomery County high school standouts have signed free agent contracts with new teams in the National Football League.
