Redskins running back Andy Farkas (1938-44)

EXCERPT: The player they called “Handy Andy” was indeed just that.  Andy Farkas, who passed away on April 11, 2002, at age 84, was a great running back for the Washington Redskins during their years of excellence in the late 1930s and early 1940s.  He played in Washington from 1938 to 1944 and in Detroit in 1945, rushing for nearly 2,000 of his 2,103 yards with the Redskins.  He led Washington in rushing in 1938, 1939, 1942 and 1943.  Farkas was a fine all-around player, too.  He tallied 1,086 receiving yards and intercepted 11 passes at defensive back in an era when players went both ways. He returned two kickoffs and a punt for touchdowns.
