Marshall Goldberg is a two-time University of Pittsburgh All-America—1937 and 1938—and four-time National Football League All-Pro.

He was a West Virginia high school legend, captaining his Elkins High School football, basketball, and track teams in 1935, and was elected All-State in each sport.

Goldberg’s 1936 Pitt football team won the Rose Bowl, and the 1937 Panthers earned the National Collegiate Championship. In 29 college varsity games, Goldberg, at halfback and fullback, gained 2,231 yards and scored 18 touchdowns.

Playing on woeful Chicago Cardinal NFL teams in 1939 and the early 1940s, Goldberg was named All-Pro in 1941. He spent 1944 and 1945 in military service. In an era when football players played both offense and defense, Goldberg was named All-Pro Defensive Back
for three consecutive years—1946, 1947, and 1948. His Cardinals won the NFL Championship in 1947 and captured the Division title in 1948.

Sports Illustrated

West Virginia, the City of Pittsburgh, and Pop Warner Football.
