Chuck Brown: Athletes pay respect on Twitter

With the passing of Chuck Brown, D.C. lost a music legend and friend. We also lost someone who loved DMV sports dearly.

He once called his Redskins halftime performance in 2010 a “dream come true.”

“I’ve always been a die-hard Redskins fan,” he said in the press conference announcing the performance. “Through thick and thin, for me it’s the Skins.”

His son, Nekos, played football for Virginia Tech, and another son, Wiley, will be a fifth-year senior linebacker for the Hokies in the fall.

After hearing of his passing, athletes with ties to D.C. took a moment to pay their respects on Twitter.
