A record-breaking tackler and a member of Florida's first senior class to play in four bowl games, Wilber Marshall punished opposing offenses during his career. Twice a consensus All-America pick, Marshall broke the Gators' single-season records for sacks (11) and tackles for a loss (16) as a sophomore. By career's end, he finished with a school-record 23 sacks and became UF's record holder in career tackles for a loss (58). The Titusville, Fla., native was only the third player in school history to be named a three-time first-team All-SEC pick. The Gainesville Sun named him Defensive Player of the Century in 1999. Selected in the first round of the 1984 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, Marshall played for five teams in 12 seasons on the professional level. He was named All-Pro three times and earned Super Bowl rings with Chicago and the Washington Redskins.
