In an interview with NBC Washington, NFL sensation Robert Griffin III ("RG3") told WRC-TV sports reporter Dan Hellie that his biggest fear coming to Washington, D.C. to be an NFL quarterback was God.

Hellie asked the Washington Redskins' star quarterback, "Everybody fears something. What was your biggest fear coming to Washington, D.C., to be an NFL quarterback?

"You try not to fear too many things. I fear God," Griffin responded.

"RG3" also told Hellie that he fears his parents saying, "you don't want to let people down, and some would say that's pressure, but I didn't fear it.

"I just wanted people to know that I don't plan on letting you guys down and I don't want to let anybody down, so that's why I work hard. That's why I believe in myself and I trust myself when I'm out there on the field."

Robert Griffin III was selected by the Redskins in the second pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.  Prior to the draft, Griffin played college football at Baylor University and won the Heisman Trophy in 2011.
