Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb’s wife, Roxie McNabb, led the Redskins wives team to a victory over the Philadelphia Eagles wives team over the weekend.

A portion of the proceeds went towards the American Lung Association, Tackling Cancer: The Keisha and Levon Kirkland Fund and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure.
When speaking on his wife Roxie’s basketball skills, Donovan McNabb said, “She played all four years.” “she started as a freshman all the way through. So, you know, she’s all-time leading in assists and steals leader at Syracuse University.”
Roxie Mcnabb was a four-year starter at Syracuse University (1995-98). She ranks second on the program’s all-time list for assists and steals. Roxie was also named team MVP twice and the 1997 Scholar-Athlete Of The Year.
