PHOTO: Cue Sly And The Family Stone, Robert Griffin III Fandom Is A Family Affair

From the moment the Washington Redskins traded for the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Robert Griffin III mania has swept the fanbase, and rightfully so, as Redskins fans are desperate for a competent playmaker at the quarterback position. So it should come as no surprise that a RGIII autograph session in Norther Virginia would draw a lot of interest and fans, including those that custom-made Griffin jerseys.

Our own Daniel Shiferaw is on the scene, and captured a father and son bonding moment that comes with creating your own jerseys for a player your team has not even drafted. Check it out the touching pic after the jump.

Like father, like son:
