Redskins' Derrius Guice invites fans, goes to movies with them to see ‘Avengers'
Redskins rookie running back Derrius Guice invited fans and went to the movies with them Monday night in Ashburn to see “Avengers: Infinity War."
Based on photos shared on Twitter, the evening went well for Guice and the fans who took him up on his offer.
Guice invited the fans to go see the movie with him earlier in the day on Twitter.
“Tryna gather up some people tonight to go to the movies out in Ashburn VA.... I’ll be handing out signed trading cards as well!” Guice tweeted.
Guice – who also said he would hand out signed trading cards – and fans saw the 8 p.m. showing of "Avengers" at Alamo Drafthouse, at One Loudoun.
Had they not been able to see the movie if it was "sold out" or they "don't have room for us," Guice wrote on Twitter that "we can figure something else out" before noting that he had 50 tickets for the movie.
Guice, known by many for having a big personality, was drafted by the Redskins in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft with the 59th overall pick. He was widely viewed as a first-round talent despite falling in the draft.
Guice, 20, rushed for 3,074 yards and 29 touchdowns in three seasons at LSU, where he split time with Leonard Fournette for the first two seasons of his career.
Guice is expected to compete for the Redskins’ starting running back job this season.
