Many lawmakers honored RGIII today led by Senator Kirk Watson who announced a Robert Griffin III scholarship.

RGIII has been getting quite the recognition these last few days. First, he was recognized by his hometown Copperas Cove with a street named after him, Robert Griffin III Boulevard.

Today, he visited the Texas Capitol building where he was honored by Texas lawmakers on the Senate floor. Senator Kirk Watson of Austin says Griffin has somehow managed to get Texans cheering for the Redskins, the obvious rival to the Cowboys.

How long until we start seeing "RGIII in 2016" t-shirts? Would Grossman be his running mate? RGIII2 in 2016?
