"One hundred years old, 100 years young," she says.

Poole was born on August 16, 1913 and has been rooting for the Redskins for longer than she can remember. She now lives at a nursing home in King George, Va.

Poole used to own a restaurant and has five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

She says if she could, she'd adopt her favorite Redskins player.

"My favorite player? That's Robert Griffin III," she beamed.

What is Poole's secret to longevity?

"Be kind. Be kind to one another. Have fun and trust in God."
