WMU Great Pete Wysocki for Greatest Washington Redskins
ANDOVER, Md. - The Washington Redskins, celebrating the franchise's 80th anniversary in 2012, is expanding its list of the 70 Greatest Redskins by 10. WMU's Pete Wysocki is a finalist and Bronco fans can help.
Wysocki was known as a special teams ace during his Redskins career. He played in 88 games, serving as a wedge buster. Wysocki registered three fumble recoveries and one interception over those 88 games and started 17 near the end of his career.
It’s no surprise Wysocki made an art of busting wedges while chasing kickoffs as a member of the Washington Redskins.
After all, the former Redskins outside linebacker and special teams standout was an award-winning painter while studying at Western Michigan University.
Wysocki, a Second Team All-Mid-American Conference selection in 1968, was named to the WMU Football All-Century Team in 2005.
He spent four seasons in the Canadian Football League with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (1971), Toronto Argonauts (1972) and the Saskatchewan Roughriders (1973-74) before signing on with the Redskins in 1975 and spending six seasons with in Washington.
