Jim “Crash” Jensen was a running back, receiver, and special teams player for the Miami Dolphins. Jensen wore number 11 because he was originally drafted as a quarterback. The emergence of Dan Marino meant that Jensen would have to be utilized in other positions in order to see playing time. Jensen received his nickname “Crash” from Howard Cosell who was describing the way Jensen played while covering kickoffs.
After his NFL career ended, Jensen went on to coach the Orlando Predators of the Arena League. Jensen now works as a Director of Wellness Programs where he assists developmentally disabled children lead active lives.
Mr. Jensen was gracious enough to sign my 1990 Pro Set Card with inscribed with his nickname.
