Leonard Allen Marshall

Leonard Allen Marshall Jr. (born October 22, 1961) is a former American football defensive lineman who played twelve seasons in the National Football League (NFL). Born in Louisiana, Marshall had experienced the effects of segregation from an early age. These trials have served to push him to seek acceptance and a team spirit - both of which he found in the NY Giants. Marshall hosted the Leonard Marshall Football Academy for a number of years, a football camp teaching the game's fundamentals to young players. Marshall served as a professor of Sports Management at Seton Hall's Stillman School of Business from 2004 to 2009. In 2010, Marshall was named head football coach at Hudson Catholic Regional High School in Jersey City, New Jersey. He received a master's degree in Business Finance from Seton Hall University in 2007 and has received several awards in recognition of his charitable work. He currently resides in Paramus, New Jersey, with his wife Lisa.
