Story and photos by Dan Landau

Three-time Pro Bowler and two-time Superbowl winner, Leonard Marshall, visited FDU's College at Florham on November 9, 2011. Appearing before a packed audience in Lenfell Hall, Marshall discussed his book "When the Cheering Stops" which describes one of the most memorable and unforgettable championship games in NFL football history: the 1991 game between the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills. In this game, the Bills were heavily favored to win Superbowl XXV; however, the Giants prevailed and captured the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Marshall also discussed the transition period professional football players go through when they retire and they go "from being the heroes they were on Sundays" to being guys they were before football.

Marshall played twelve seasons in the NFL and won two Super Bowls rings with the New York Giants before retiring in 1996. He was a starter on the New York Giants teams that won Super Bowls XXI and XXV.
