Marshall Faulk enters Hall of Fame

Marshall Faulk, as versatile and dangerous a running back as the

NFL has seen, has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of

Fame.

Faulk was voted top offensive player in 1999, 2000 and 2001, and

was the NFL’s MVP in 2000. He was the league’s scoring leader in

2000 and ’01, made seven Pro Bowls and was the first player to gain

2,000 yards from scrimmage in four consecutive years.

The second overall draft pick in 1994, when Faulk was offensive

rookie of the year, he played five seasons in Indianapolis, then

his final seven for St. Louis, helping the Rams to their only Super

Bowl victory in 1999.

Through tears, Faulk said Saturday, ”Boy this is pretty

special. … I am glad to be a part of it. This is football

heaven.”
