Dick Stanfel Selected For Induction Into Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Posted Feb 6, 2016

The Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL on Saturday announced that former Redskins guard Dick Stanfel has been posthumously selected for induction into the Hall of Fame Class of 2016.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL on Saturday announced that former Redskins guard Dick Stanfel has been posthumously selected for induction into the Hall of Fame Class of 2016.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame and the National Football League announced tonight that former Washington Redskins guard Dick Stanfel has been posthumously selected for induction as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2016. Stanfel and fellow members of the Class of 2016 will be enshrined in a ceremony in Canton, Ohio in early August.

Stanfel originally entered the NFL as a second round selection (19th overall) of the Detroit Lions in the 1951 NFL Draft. After missing the 1951 season with a knee injury, he embarked upon a seven-season career from 1952-58.

Stanfel spent four seasons with the Detroit Lions from 1952-55 before being acquired by the Redskins as part of a four-team deal prior to the 1956 season. Stanfel appeared in 34 games with Washington from 1956-58, earning first-team All-Pro honors in each of his three seasons with the Redskins. A veteran of five career Pro Bowls (including three selections in three years in Washington), he was honored as part of the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 1950s.

In 2002, a blue ribbon panel named Stanfel as one of the 70 Greatest Redskins. The group was later expanded to the 80 Greatest Redskins during the team’s 80th Anniversary season in 2012.

Richard Anthony “Dick” Stanfel was born July 20, 1927. He attended San Francisco’s Commerce H.S. before playing collegiately at the University of San Francisco. Stanfel served in the Army in the Pacific theatre in World War II prior to beginning his professional career at the age of 25.

Stanfel passed away at 87 years of age on June 22, 2015.
