History

Greatest Redskins

1964-74#9 Sonny Jurgensen
Quarterback
Pro Football Hall of Fame 1968

Drafted in the fourth round of the 1957 Draft by Philadelphia, out of Duke University... Acquired in 1964 in a trade that sent QB Norm Snead to the Eagles... While with the team, was nicknamed "Red Roach"... Won three NFL passing titles and helped lead the Skins to the 1972 Championship game... Elected to the Pro Bowl four times.

Considers playing the 1969 season for head coach Vince Lombardi to be his most memorable football experience... He calls his biggest accomplishment being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983... Pre-game ritual involved sharing every pre-game meal (usually a bologna sandwich) with trainer Tommy McVean.

Most inspired by his mother: "When I was starting out, I used to play catch with her"... Teammates he most admired were "the ones that protected me."

Redskins played a very important part in his life, even after his playing career as the long-time color commentator for all Redskins games on WJFK Redskins Radio during the regular season. He has also shared his insights as an analyst with George Michael on WRC-TV during the preseason... Worked with WRC-TV doing on-air sports commentatary throughout the year.
