Wilber Marshall to be honored at Miami game



Former Florida linebacker Wilber Marshall (1980-83), will be honored with an  on-campus salute at this weekend's Miami game.

Marshall will be recognized during the first time out of the second quarter in honor of his being inducted into the College Hall of Fame.

A commemorative plaque will be presented to the University of Florida for  permanent display. Beginning with the Foundation's inaugural Hall of Fame class in 1951, the on-campus salute has served as the first of numerous highlights for Hall of Fame inductees.

Florida players previously inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame include Emmitt Smith (2006), Steve Spurrier (1986), Dale Van Sickel (1975) and Jack Youngblood (1992).

The 2008 Hall of Fame Class will be officially inducted at the National Football Foundation's annual awards dinner, held at New York City's historic Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on Dec. 9.
