In a recent tweet, a fan took a picture wearing Joe Jacoby’s Super Bowl rings:

Washington Redskins Championship Rings


The rings shown in the picture are as follows (from Left to Right):

The 1991, Super Bowl XXVI ring, made by Tiffany and Company in 10K solid yellow gold.

The 1983 NFC Championship ring made by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold (The Redskins lost to the Los Angeles Raiders that year in Super Bowl XVIII).

The 1987 Super Bowl XXII ring, made by Tiffany and Company. The ring is 10K solid yellow gold.

The ring on the far left is Joe Jacoby’s first Super Bowl ring, from Super Bowl XVII. The ring was made by Jostens in 10K solid yellow gold.

Joe Jacoby was one heck of a football player. He was named to the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team, was a 3x Super Bowl Champion, a 4x Pro Bowl player, and was also selected as one of the 70 Greatest Redskins.

Things did not start out well for Jacoby who, after college, was snubbed in the NFL draft. He signed a free agent contract with the Redskins in 1981 and had to claw his way through rookie camp, and training camp.

With teammates, Jeff Bostic, Mark May, George Starke and Russ Grimm, Joe Jacoby was a founding member of the Redskins’ famous “Hogs” offensive
line, which became one of the best offensive lines in football history.

Joe Jacoby was the lead blocker on John Riggins’ famous touchdown run which helped ensure the Redskins’ Super Bowl XVII win over the Miami Dolphins in 1983. In that Super Bowl game, the Redskins set a Super Bowl record for most rushing yards with 276. The Hogs helped the Redskins break that record five years later in Super Bowl XXII, in which the Redskins trampled all over the Broncos with 280 rushing yards en route to the second of the Redskins’ three Super Bowl championships.

Joe Jacoby became an Assistant Football Coach at Shenandoah University in Virginia. He began as a part-time volunteer in 2008 and was later hired as a full-time employee in 2009.

This year, Jacoby was hired as the Offensive Line Coach for Concordia University Chicago.
