2017 Southwest Conference Hall of Fame Inductee

Football
The only quarterback in UA history to lead a team to a national championship, Fred Marshall cemented his place in Razorback history by leading the Razorbacks to a magical 11-0 season in 1964. A three-year letterman, Marshall assumed the starting quarterback role early in the 1964 campaign and made the most of his opportunity. The recipient of the 1964 Houston Post Award, recognizing the most outstanding player in the Southwest Conference, Marshall threw for 656 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 438 yards. He garnered All-Southwest Conference honors and earned the Crip Hall Award in his senior season in the Hogs’ 44-0 rout of SMU. He engineered a historic 80-yard drive late in the fourth quarter against Nebraska in the Cotton Bowl to clinch the win and the Hogs’ first football national championship. Following his Razorback career, he went on to play with Calgary of the Canadian Football League. Marshall was inducted into the University of Arkansas Sports Hall of Honor in 2003, SEC Football Legends in 2004, as well as the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame in 2016. Also in 2016, he was selected to the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.
