Dick Stanfel Named Finalist

Stanfel, who passed away in June, was selected by the Hall’s Seniors Committee.

Stanfel, a University of San Francisco alumni, spent his final three NFL seasons with the Redskins after a trade with the Detroit Lions in 1956, earning Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors during each season played in the burgundy and gold.

According to his Greatest Redskins profile, Stanfel’s most memorable moment with the team “occurred when he came out of a game, and the entire stadium gave him a standing ovation.”

Stanfel was named to the 1950s All-Decade Team and nominated twice for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, once in 1993 and again in 2012.
