The new name comes from Jazz LEGEND, Duke Ellington. Ellington was born and raised in D.C. before further developing his music prowess. "Duke" is also a high royal title, referring to the Washington Football Team's deep history in the NFL. Naming the team after one of D.C.'s own pays respect not only to the city but to the people who call it their home.
