Paul Krause: Interceptions Were His Specialty


When Redskins' history buffs recall the 1964 season, they are likely to remember a thrilling, high-octane offense led by quarterback Sonny Jurgensen, running back Charley Taylor and flanker Bobby Mitchell.

The defense wasn't the team's focal point, although it featured a future Pro Bowler, linebacker Sam Huff, and a promising rookie. That player, free safety Paul Krause, intercepted a league-high 12 passes and was named to the Pro Bowl. He earned Pro Bowl honors again in 1965. The 12 interceptions were one short of the team record set by Don Sandifer in 1948.
