Posted Jan 28, 2016

Former Dolphins safety Jake Scott honored for having among the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors has chosen its "Super Bowl 50 Golden Team" in honor of Super Bowl 50. Former Dolphins safety Jake Scott earned a spot on the team. The team was selected based on best overall career performances in the Super Bowl.

Scott played in three Super Bowls with the Dolphins, including the team's wins in Super Bowls VII and VIII. Scott provided a pivotal moment en route to completing the first - and still only - perfect season in the Super Bowl era. Scott intercepted Billy Kilmer in the end zone to thwart a Redskins scoring threat, that was one of two interceptions for Scott as he earned game MVP honors.

Overall, Scott played with the Dolphins from 1970-76 and went to the Pro Bowl five consecutive times between 1971-75. He recorded 35 interceptions in his six seasons with the Dolphins.
