IRVING, Texas (Oct. 3, 2022) – Rick Redman, a 1995 College Football Hall of Fame inductee who played linebacker and guard at Washington from 1962-64, passed away Sept. 30. He was 79.

“One of the most celebrated players in Husky football history, Rick Redman did it all,” said NFF Chairman Archie Manning. “He played on both sides of the ball, and he starred as the team’s punter too. His versatility led the Huskies to a conference championship and a Rose Bowl appearance. His accomplishments will not be forgotten, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the UW community at this time of loss.”

A two-time consensus First Team All-American in 1963 and 1964, Rick Redman stood 5-11 in height, weighed 215 pounds, and he was one of the most versatile linemen ever to play the game. Listed at guard for three years, 1962-64, he also played linebacker on defense, and he handled the team’s punting, averaging 38 yards per 134 attempts during 30 games over three years.

In his junior year, 1963, Washington opened the season with three straight losses. The team then won six of its last seven games, claiming the conference championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.

Named an all-conference guard three times, he also earned Academic All-America honors and graduated with a degree in business. Redman played nine seasons with the San Diego Chargers (1965-73), making the AFL All-Star team in 1967. He also played for the Portland Storm in the 1974 inaugural season of the World Football League.

Born March 7, 1943, in Portland, Oregon, Redman attended Bishop Blanchet High School in Seattle, where he was a three-sport athlete and a high school All-America selection as a senior in 1960.

After his pro football career, he returned to Seattle and entered the commercial construction business. A principal at Sellen Construction, he played roles in numerous major projects, including the renovations of Alaska Airlines Arena and Conibear Shellhose, Foster School of Business’ PACCAR Hall, and UW Medicine’s Research Campus in South Lake Union. He remained a key volunteer and contributor to the UW athletics program throughout his entire life. He was inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame in 1982.
