Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee and member of the Washington Commanders Ring of Fame Darrell Green will serve as the Legend of the Game, presented by SeatGeek. Green played 20 seasons for Washington, capturing two Super Bowl victories in the 1987 and 1991 seasons, seven Pro Bowl selections, and four First-team All-Pro selections. In 1996, he won NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award, recognizing his excellence off the field through charity work. He holds the NFL record for most consecutive seasons with an interception (19) and is the only undefeated multiple-time winner of the NFL Fastest Man competition. Green was named to the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team in 2019.
