Friday is an open date on the Redskins’ schedule but they will be preparing to meet Fairfield Friday week in Fairfield. Let’s all go down to Fairfield and help our wonderful cheerleaders root our team on to victory. The cheerleaders are doing a great job of keeping the spirit of the fans up at the game.
