ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Robert Griffin III's fondness for superheroes and inspirational slogans is on full display.
The Washington Redskins opened their locker room to reporters for the first time Tuesday, and the Heisman Trophy winner has decorated his cubbyhole with six figurines, including Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk.
Slogans posted underneath the figurines include "Amazing," ''Conquer Every Obstacle," ''Sacrifice," ''Army Strong" and "Be Unstoppable." There's also a bear, of course, to represent his college team, the Baylor Bears.
Griffin has posted a piece of paper printed with the words: "Forget about being MVP; Forget about being in the Pro Bowl. Those are nice consolation prizes if you don't get a SUPER BOWL RING."
The son of two U.S. Army sergeants famously wore Superman socks to the Heisman ceremony.
