|## #79 Ron McDole Defensive End||1971-78|
|Nicknamed "The Dancing Bear" by Sonny Jurgensen after showing off his dance moves at a Georgetown nightspot… Key member of Super Bowl VII team… Played 18 years in the NFL… Known as a durable and dominating force on the defensive line… Named to two Pro Bowl teams while with Buffalo (1966, 1968).
Most memorable moment with the Redskins was beating the arch-rival Dallas Cowboys to win the NFC title and reach the Super Bowl… Also recalls a game against the Oilers during his first season with the Redskins, in which he intercepted a screen pass and ran it back for the only touchdown of his long career.
Gained greatest inspiration from Lou Saban and Ralph Wilson of the Bills, who "gave me a chance after other teams counted me out"… Most proud of his ability to play mostly injury-free and to exhibit the heart and hustle he thrived upon.
Thinks of "class organization" when mentioning the Redskins… Exhibited superstitious nature before games by arriving to the stadium at the same time and driving an exact route each time… Most admired teammates were all the members of the "Over the Hill Gang," which was a "special group of guys."
After retiring from the NFL, spent time as an industrial education teacher and also worked for a manufacturing company.
