Well, things seem to be coming together quite nicely for quarterback Robert Griffin III.

The Washington Redskins superstar made quite the noise in his rookie season with a quiet storm presence who took charge of the football field during the regular and post-season. Well, that is, of course, until he was badly injured and could no longer play.

But having been in the off season for some time, Griffin has had time to plan for something big: his wedding day.

According to his mother, Griffin plans to marry his fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat this July.

E! Online reports that RGIII’s mom told Washington D.C. television station WTTG that Liddicoat and Griffin will be jumping the broom on July 6th in Virginia.

Apparently, a wedding registry has been created at Bed, Bath & Beyond for the couple and it coincides with the July 6th date his mother revealed.

The couple has allegedly been together since high school and were engaged back in 2010.  Griffin had his college teammate play the guitar while he made his speech in front of family and friends before getting down on one knee.

Maybe he’ll cut his hair in preparation for the ceremony. I mean…it’d be nice.

Congrats to the couple! Hopefully, the summer wedding will bring even more excitement to his game for the 2013-2014 football season!

  • I dont get the gold digging and sell out comments. They’ve been together about 6 years. People are saying she knew he was going to be rich his jr year of h/s? The man even stated that she gave him the time of day when no other women would. So how is that selling out?

    i don’t mean to be mean, but they both look kinda raggedy. I don’t watch football anyway so I don’t even know who this dude is lol

      idk, they look fairly average (maybe a below average depending on location). I mean as long as they truly love each other, congrats to them.

    Congrats to them and I wish them happiness, no matter what the race critics have to say. Love has no color, as long as the person has a big heart on the inside.

    • How do you know she’s a gold digger? Is it because he’s a football player (if he married someone else does that make her a gold digger too?) or the fact that she’s white? Smh…..

      In terms of your reference to him being ugly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Obviously he’s not “beholding” you, so that’s a moot point. However, please share with us…just WHY is he a sellout?

        Don’t feed the trolls!

        • Jennifer

          LOL! I couldn’t resist having her back up that horrible comment, but duly noted. No more troll feeding for me! 🙂
