Jeff Bostic #53 and Monte Coleman #51 are both headed to the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame….
A native of Greensboro, N.C., Jeff Bostic(Smith High School) is a member of the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame and the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. In addition to his extensive charitable work in the Washington, D.C. community, Bostic annually held a golf tournament to benefit the Hospice House of Greensboro in honor of his late mother, Sharron.
Originally signed by the Redskins as a rookie free agent on Sept. 2, 1980, Bostic spent his entire 14-year NFL career in Washington from 1980-93. The man known as “Bosco” appeared in 184 regular season games with 149 starts for Washington. He also started all 18 postseason games he played for the Redskins.
Bostic was a founding member of “The Hogs,” Washington’s famed group of offensive linemen that helped guide the franchise to four Super Bowl appearances and three Super Bowl titles during his career. In Super Bowl XVII, Bostic helped pave the way for a Super Bowl-record 276 rushing yards, guiding the Redskins to their third World Championship and their first Super Bowl title.
In Bostic’s 14 seasons in Washington, the Redskins averaged 22.9 points per game (second in NFC, third in NFL) and 342.1 yards per game (second in NFC, fourth in NFL), including 214.3 passing yards per game (second in NFC, fifth in NFL) and 127.8 rushing yards per game (fourth in NFC, sixth in NFL). In that time frame, the Redskins compiled a 150-87 record (.633) in combined regular season and postseason play, the second-best winning percentage in the NFL across those seasons.
