Brig Owens, Ken Houston Talk #RedskinsPride

If you read my look at the careers of a few choice Redskins defensive backs after 30, you’ll understand how potent a safety tandem Washington had in the ’70s. Both Brig Owens and Ken Houston were named to the list of 80 greatest Redskins.

A few weeks ago during Alumni Homecoming weekend, I had the chance to roam with a camera and a microphone at a gala Dan Snyder and Bruce Snyder held for distinguished alumni, whom I interviewed about the brotherhood that bonds past players and what Redskins pride means to each of them.

We’ve been rolling out the interviews on Redskins.com, and I’m going to bring some your way in the coming weeks. First up, Owens and Houston.

“When George Allen was here, and Vince Lombardi, they always said, ‘When the Redskins get introduced, we want our fans to give us a standing ovation, but we have earn it.'”

“If you played anywhere else, you wanted to be a part of the over-the-hill gang. Just to be identified with that group is one of the highlights of my career.”
