History

Greatest Redskins

#74 George Starke
Tackle
1973-84
 
Pro Football Hall of Fame 1966

Known as the “Head Hog” by fans and “Silk” by teammates…He was a key member of Super Bowl XVII champion team. Most memorable moments with the Redskins include playing as a rookie with the “Over the Hill Gang” and blocking for John Riggins on his touchdown run that sealed the Super Bowl win…He considers the Redskins to be a “part of my family”…Pre-game rituals included reading the Sunday paper and driving to the stadium via the same exact route. Greatest inspiration was his father, who was a teacher and principal in Yonkers, New York…Most admired teammate was Larry Brown, who Starke said had “a big heart.” Following his career with the Redskins, he entered the automotive business as owner of George Starke Ford in Maryland…He also has served as founder and CEO of Excel Institute, a two-year school in Washington, D.C. that gives people a chance to earn a high school equivalency diploma and work as an auto technician or in similar fields.
