Marshall Faulk Biography

Raised In New Orleans, Energized San Diego State Football Program, Drafted By Indianapolis Colts, ChronologyCONTACT INFORMATION


American football player

St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk is speedy, powerful, and elusive, making him a nearly unstoppable scoring machine. Faulk can catch passes, rush for yardage, block, and evade tackles. He's a complete package—and, as Football Digest noted, the most complete all-around player in the NFL today. When Faulk has the ball, he flattens opponents like a bulldozer, or dashes past defenders like a bullet train. With his skills, Faulk pours on the points. In 2000, he set a new NFL record for most touchdowns in a season (26). He's also the only player in NFL history to produce four straight 2,000-yard seasons (1998-2001). There's just no telling what he'll be able to accomplish over the long haul. As O.J. Simpson told Sports Illustrated, "You don't exaggerate when you say a guy like that comes along once in a lifetime."
