Vienna House Linked to Protecting Kids From D.C. Sniper Now For Sale

A house for sale near Wolf Trap is tied to the story of neighbors who teamed up to keep kids safe during their football practice from the D.C. sniper.

In 2002, a shooting spree in the D.C.-area killed 10 people. and wounded three other people over a three-week period.

“The Vienna Steelers banned together in the Coral Ridge cul-de-sac of one of the players’ homes,” Morgan Samson with The Casey Samson Team said in a blog post. “Parents stood guard at the entrances of the neighborhood so the boys could continue to practice.”

The team included Head Coach Casey Samson, Quarterback Billy Samson and “supporting dad” Pat Samson — “all of whom are now members of The Casey Samson Team,” according to the post.

The Casey Samson Team has the house at 9464 Coral Crest Lane listed for $1,550,000.

The 8,200-square-foot house has five bedrooms, a three-car-garage and includes a renovated kitchen, walk-in closets and two fireplaces. The lower level features a recreation room, playroom, hobby room and exercise room.

The house will be open from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday (Nov. 17), Morgan Samson said.
