Marshall Faulk is back in San Diego now that he is retired from a NFL career that will land him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and has him working as an analyst for NFL Network.
But as Faulk enters the Breitbard Hall of Fame, the truth is he never really left San Diego. He was raised in New Orleans before he burst onto the college football scene at San Diego State as a freshman in 1991, but he’s considered himself a San Diegan since the day he arrived.
“When you come to San Diego for the first time–whether it’s to go to school or to move here–people welcome you whether you call it home or not, “Faulk said. “It’s such a beautiful place. I had a wonderful college career here and the people embraced me.”
