Curt Singer

Football ∙ Hopewell

 

 

 

 

Curt Singer was a stalwart two way lineman for three years with the Hopewell Vikings and in his senior year made All Conference, All WPIAL, a Penn-Ohio All Star, the Keystoners’ MVP, and the Big 33 All Star Game. But football wasn’t his only success: Curt was a pretty good baseball player, pitching the Vikings to a playoff win over Dan Marino and Central Catholic. Listed on the Gold List of Blue Chip Magazine, Curt was the target of many recruiters but he decided to attend the University of Tennessee, where Johnny Majors had just taken over. Curt became an outstanding lineman with the Volunteers, and one of his main reasons for his development was the daily challenge of facing Reggie White in practice. Curt lettered all four years at UT and was a starter for three, leading Tennessee to a 24-9 record and making a bowl game in all of his years as a starter. Curt was All Southeastern Conference as a senior and was on the line that produced Tennessee’s first ever 1000 yard rusher. At the end of the season, Curt was awarded the Bobby Majors Award for his dedication to football and academics. Curt was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the sixth round of the 1984 draft, but a herniated disc forced him to miss the 1985 season. After the Redskins released him, Curt signed with Seattle and played there two years and then was traded to Detroit in 1988. In 1989 Curt played with the New York Jets and finished his career with Seattle, retiring in 1991. He earned a game ball for his performance against Dallas in the annual nationally televised Thanksgiving game.
