Richard Anthony “Dick” Stanfel (July 20, 1927 - June 22, 2015) spent seven seasons as an offensive lineman in the National Football League. The Detroit Lions took Stanfel in the 2nd round of the 1951 NFL Draft, but a knee injury pushed his debut to the 1952 season, when he was named a starter and formed part of the core of the Lion’s offensive line on the championship teams of 1952 and 1953. Following four seasons (1952-1955), Stanfel was traded to the Washington Redskins (1956-1958). Stanfel was elected to five Pro Bowl teams during his pro career. Following his retirement, Stanfel served as interim head coach for the New Orleans Saints (1980) and offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears (1981-1992). Dick Stanfel was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
