Former Liberty wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden was drafted in the 4th round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins.

"I definitely know you know [Haskins is] an explosive guy, he has a lot of arm and he's very accurate so I'm excited to work with him," Gandy-Golden said. "Of course Chase Young, you know he's a monster, I saw him in person, he's a lot bigger than he looks on TV, so I'm excited, you know, I know he's gonna wreck things up front too."
