In The Middle Of It All

Jeffrey Lynn Bostic was born on May 12, 1958, in Greensboro, North Carolina. He was an offensive lineman for the Washington Redskins for 14 seasons from 1980 to 1993.

He attended Clemson University from 1976-1979 and earned All ACC honors.


After being signed as an undrafted free agent by Philadelphia in 1980, Washington quickly snatched him away that same year.

General Manager Charley Casserley saw Bostic play center and guard at Clemson and had been impressed. Though he played guard as a senior, Casserley thought he was a better center, so that’s where Washington put him.

Bostic quickly established himself as a reliable and hardworking player. By his second season in D.C., he had earned the starting job and held it for the remainder of his career.

He was widely respected by his peers and coaches for his work ethic and leadership on and off the field. He was a quiet but determined player who led by example and set a high standard for his teammates.

“Bosco” was a key member of the Redskins’ legendary Hogs offensive line, which helped lead the team to Super Bowl victories in 1983, 1988, and 1992. Bostic is the only center in NFL history to snap to three different Super Bowl winning quarterbacks! He also played in the 1984 Super Bowl.

He earned a Pro Bowl selection in 1983 and was a three-time winner of the Redskins Offensive Lineman of the Year Award.

Bostic was known for his toughness and durability, having played in almost 200 games during his career despite numerous injuries.

Most Washington fans consider him to be the greatest center in franchise history.

He played in 184 career regular season games  – starting 149 of them – all of them with Washington. He also appeared in 18 career playoff games and had nine career fumble recoveries.

Bostic was inducted into the Clemson University Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993 and the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002.

He was selected to the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame in 2015. He is also one of the 90 Greatest Redskins.

When inducted to the Ring of Fame, he was asked what he attributed his longevity to. He initially responded with “Luck,” but followed it up with a much more poignant response:

“I had a very severe knee injury in 1984, my fifth year, and played nine more years in it – tore three of four ligaments and [former team doctor] Stan Levine put me back together. I had rotator cuff surgery in year 13 and wasn’t going out on injured reserve. Came back for year 14, but my right knee was done by then. I had nothing left. I regretted nothing. I left everything I had on the field, in the weight room, in the film room. I’d been to pro Bowls, won world championships. I’d done everything there was to do.” – Jeff Bostic

In addition to his work on the field and in the community, Bostic has also been recognized for his broadcasting. He has worked as a commentator and analyst for various television and radio networks, including ESPN and CBS Sports.
