Robert Griffin III may be a big-time NFL quarterback these days - but it seems the Washington Redskins play-caller hasn't forgotten his roots.

The Killeen Daily Herald reported today that RGIII donated a cool $100,000 to the Copperas Cove Independent School District recently.

The money is expected to be used to support football, basketball, and track and field - and with that sum the area can expect some facility upgrades in the near future!

The 2012 second overall draft pick is a former student of Copperas Cove High School and helped the football team to two straight Division I-4A state championship games, as well as representing the school in track.

And this isn't the first time RGIII has made such a donation.

Back in October 2013, the 24-year old gifted approximately $80,000 worth of football equipment to the school.

Fair play to the player who certainly seems keen to help the next generation as much as he can.

But when you are earning a reported $21.1 million over four years I suppose you can afford to be generous.
