The Palm Beach Post reported yesterday that soon to be Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulkwill return to the South Florida area to celebrate his induction into Canton.
"I lived in the area throughout my playing career and have participated in charity events hosted by people like Dan Marino, Nat Moore, and Gino Torretta," Faulk said. "This is going to be a star-studded event, one where we can raise some funds to help inner-city kids find a place to belong."
Faulk will be hosting the "Road to the Hall of Fame" event at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, raisining money for his charitable foundation.
The former Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Ramsrunning back ended his career in 2006 with 12,279 rushing yards and 136 touchdowns, leaving him as the 10th leading rusher in NFL history. He was selected to seven Pro Bowls and three times an NFL All-Pro 1st Team selection. Faulk is a two time NFL MVP, and a three time Offensive Player of the Year. He was the 1994 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and was named NFL.com's 70th best player in NFL history.
