Wilber Marshall

## #58 Wilber Marshall Linebacker 1988-92
Led Redskins' defensive charge in Super Bowl win over Buffalo during 1991-92 season… Pro Bowl selection in 1986, 1987 and 1992… Played for five teams during stellar NFL career, including Chicago Bears' 1985-86 Super Bowl squad.

Most memorable moments with the Redskins consisted of "other people's moments. It wouldn't have been possible without the guys I played with"… Proudest accomplishment is being nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Gained inspiration from "tough and nasty" linebackers such as Jack Lambert, Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary: "Tried to take a piece from each one of them"… Says he compensated for lack of size by "outworking people and toughing it out"… The Redskins gave him "opportunity"… Pre-game ritual centered around being focused… Often put towel on head to "get fired-up"… Lists Darrell Green and Reggie Branch among his most admired teammates.

Grew up in Florida and attended the University of Florida, where he was a two-time All-American.
