Jack Steve Squirek (born February 16, 1959 in Cleveland, Ohio) is a former professional American football linebacker in the NFL who played for the Los Angeles Raiders from 1982 to 1986 and for the Miami Dolphins in 1986.
Career Highlights[edit | edit source]
He is known for his famous interception in Super Bowl XVIII against the Washington Redskins: before the end of the first half, a Raiders drive stalled when Jim Plunkett's third down pass was incomplete, but Ray Guy's 27-yard punt pinned Washington at their own 12-yard line with 12 seconds left in the half. On the first play of their drive, Squirek intercepted Joe Theismann's screen pass and returned it for a touchdown to give the Raiders a 21-3 halftime lead.
Retirement[edit | edit source]
He has been living in the Cleveland area since his playing days, with his wife Penny and their two children, Jacob and Cassandra. Squirek runs a successful cleaning and janitorial service in that area.
