In 2015, his running backs helped the Panthers rank second in the NFL, the highest ranking in team history.

After graduating from Whittier as a transfer student, he’s earned more than 30 years of coaching experience, including 17 seasons with teams in the USFL, XFL, and the NFL—specifically, the New York Giants, Arizona Cardinals, New Orleans Saints, Tennessee Titans, and Carolina Panthers.

Before he was a doctor, researcher, national speaker, and medical app developer, Marshall traveled the world through Whittier—first Copenhagen to learn more about child development, then New Mexico to practice outpatient orthopedics.

Since then, he’s completed a doctorate at Azusa Pacific University, two orthopedic fellowships, and shares his knowledge as a professor at Azusa, when he’s not treating patients or mentoring physical therapist residents and fellows at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles.

“I came into grad school very prepared… From having to do standup presentations in my classes, I also learned great communication and educating skills, and the ability to adjust to patients’ personalities and educational levels.”
