The Redskins selected wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden with the 142nd pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Liberty University.

Here is everything you need to know about the big-play receiver.

1. He leaves Liberty as the program's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns.

Gandy-Golden finished his career at Liberty with 240 catches for 3,814 yards and 33 touchdowns - all program records. 

2. He bowled a perfect game, landing him on SportsCenter.

AGG decided to take up bowling a few years back. He's pretty, pretty, pretty good at it.

3. He trained with former NFL stars Cris Carter and Anquan Boldin.

Gandy-Golden, who stands 6'4", trained with two of the best big receivers to ever play in the National Football League: Hall of Famer Cris Carter and Super Bowl Champion Anquan Boldin. It can be assumed he learned a few things from his workouts from his two receiver coaches while training at XPE Sports in Boca Raton, Florida.

4. He can solve a Rubiks Cube in a minute, juggle, complete a flip while catching a football, and torch opposing defenses. 

The ex-Liberty star has talents well beyond the football field and is a modern day Renaissance man.

5. He is the first in his family to graduate from college.

AGG studied graphic design at Liberty. He's a talented artist too. Gandy-Golden told The Athletic that before he lets his art pay the bills, he plans to have a long NFL career.
