For more than a decade, Dr. Aarohi Ambardekar has been a partner, physician, and anesthesiologist with Southern Maryland Anesthesia Associates in Lanham, Maryland. Outside of his professional life, Dr. Aarohi Ambardekar enjoys watching professional football and is a fan of the Washington Redskins.

There have been many great individuals who have played for the Washington Redskins over the years. Names like Joe Theismann and John Riggins immediately come to mind. Among the all-time outstanding Redskins, however, perhaps the greatest player is cornerback Darrell Green.

A Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Green played 20 years for the Redskins, which is unheard of in the National Football League (NFL). He won two Super Bowls in Washington and was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, a four-time First Team All-Pro selection, and the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 1996. Green is also the all-time franchise leader in interceptions.

Green never sought out the spotlight, which explains why he remains underrated among pro football fans and the world at large. For two decades, however, he was the cornerstone of the Redskins defense and one of the most durable players in NFL history.
