NFL: Redskins QB Robert Griffin III Marries Rebecca Liddicoat

Jul 7 2013, 11:11pm CDT | by

Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III married his college sweetheart, Rebecca Liddicoat, in Denver on Saturday.

Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III is now a married man. 

Griffin married his college sweetheart, Rebecca Liddicoat, in Denver on Saturday. The ceremony and reception took place at the Denver Four Seasons. A bishop from the Christian House of Prayer from Copperas Cove, Tex. - Griffin's hometown - wed the couple. According to the Washington Post's Dan Steinberg, the wedding party had 10 members which included the groom's father who acted as best man and Liddicoat's sister, the maid of honor. 

Griffin was dressed in a beautiful all-white ensemble while his bride was radiant in her gown. 

Steingberg also adds the guests, which included Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and Griffin's college coach at Baylor, Art Briles, stayed for an estimated six or seven hours. 

Aside from Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and his wife Tanya, other notable appearances were made by Griffin's fellow players which included Kirk Cousins, Rex Grossman, Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, Alfred Morris, Eric Kettani, DeAngelo Hall and London Fletcher. 

Boxing promoter Rock Newman described the guests at the wedding. 

"The best of America, that's how I felt. I just saw people, all ages, all ethnicities, all colors - white, black, Hispanic, Asian- really just enjoying each other. And I marveled at it. I just was filled with a sense of pride and optimism - optimism, man - because we lived in a fractured world. And that sense of any kind of division was not there."

At one point, Griffin encouraged the guests to stand, go around and meet someone new. He openly said that everyone in attendance was already considered family.

Griffin, considered by many to be one of the game's best quarterbacks, threw for 3,200 yards for five touchdowns (rushing for seven more for a total of 12) and a 102.4 QB rating in his rookie season in 2012, per ESPN stats.
