RICHMOND, Va. (WUSA9) --  After Wednesday morning's practice, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III went out of his way to spend time with an extra special fan: 99-year-old Georgia Poole.

She says she is the oldest and biggest fan of the Burgundy and Gold, and all she wanted was to meet the star quarterback.

Poole, who is from the Northern Neck, finally got her chance on Wednesday. See the photos from training camp above.*

In part of the video, you can see RGIII walk across the grass, smiling at her and then kneel before Poole and her sign. As he goes to autograph her sign, she appears to say "You be careful now...don't be hurt no more now."

RGIII replies, "You got it. Understood."
