He played college football for San Diego State University, was a two-time consensus All-American, he was selected by the Indianapolis Colts as the second overall pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, he played professionally for the NFL's St. Louis Rams. Faulk was a member of the Greatest Show on Turf, a name given to the St. Louis Rams team that appeared in two Super Bowls and won Super Bowl XXXIV. In 2000, Faulk was named the Most Valuable Player of the NFL. Faulk is one of only three NFL players to reach at least 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards. Faulk was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2017, he was an analyst for various programs on the NFL Network until December 2017. Faulk was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, he attended Carver High School in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, where he played for the Carver Rams high school football team.

A standout track sprinter, Faulk was timed at 10.3 seconds in the 100 meters, 21.74 over 200 meters and 49.4 in the 400 meters.. Growing up, Faulk worked selling popcorn at New Orleans Saints games in the Louisiana Superdome Faulk received an athletic scholarship to attend San Diego State University, played as a running back for the San Diego State Aztecs football team. One of the best performances of his career was against the University of the Pacific on September 14, 1991 in just his second collegiate game. In 37 carries, he scored seven touchdowns, both records for freshmen. "Faulk had scoring runs of 61, 7, 47, 9, 5, 8 and 25 yards." That performance sparked one of the greatest freshman seasons in NCAA history, gaining 1,429 yards rushing, with 23 total touchdowns, 140 points scored. Faulk went on to better 1,600 yards rushing in his sophomore year. In Faulk's junior season in 1993, he was able to showcase his all-purpose ability by catching 47 passes for 640 yards and 3 touchdowns to go with 1,530 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground.

These numbers put Faulk 3rd in the nation in all-purpose yardage that year, 2nd in scoring. Faulk left San Diego State University with many of the school's offensive records, among them 5,562 all-purpose yards and 62 career touchdowns, the 8th most in NCAA history. After his 1992 season at SDSU, Faulk finished second in the Heisman Trophy award voting, losing to quarterback Gino Torretta in what was considered a notable snub in the history of the award: Torretta's 1992 Miami Hurricanes football team had gone undefeated in the regular season and was ranked No. 1 in the country before the Heisman balloting, Faulk's team finished with a middling 5-5-1 record, continuing a trend of the Heisman going to the most notable player on one of the nation's best teams. ESPN analyst Lee Corso led a campaign supporting Torretta for the Heisman and left Marshall Faulk off of his ballot, he was a Heisman finalist as well in 1991 and 1993. Along with defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson and quarterbacks Heath Shuler and Trent Dilfer, Faulk was regarded as "one of the four players who rank well above the others in this draft".

On February 14, 1994, at the NFL Scouting Combine Faulk ran a 4.28 forty-yard dash. and on March 31, he ran a 4.35 forty-yard time at the San Diego State Pro Day. The Bengals held the No. 1 pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, contemplated combining their heavy-duty runner Harold Green with the explosive Faulk, but picked Wilkinson, leaving Faulk for the Indianapolis Colts. Faulk was drafted 2nd overall in the 1994 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts, who were in desperate need of a running game. On July 25, 1994, Faulk signed a seven-year $17.2 million contract and received a $5.1 million signing bonus. Faulk responded by rushing for 1,282 yards, 11 touchdowns, one receiving touchdown; the Colts improved to 8-8. Marshall Faulk that season, would become the first NFL player to win both the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award and the Pro Bowl’s Most Valuable Player Award in the same season, he was the first rookie to win Pro Bowl MVP. The next season Faulk rushed for 14 total touchdowns; the Colts made the postseason, going 9-7, narrowly missed the Super Bowl after a close loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game which Faulk missed due to a nagging toe injury.

The next year was a miserable one for Faulk. Because of a toe injury he suffered earlier in the season, he rushed for only 587 yards, with a 3 yards-per-carry average, he led the Colts in yards from scrimmage with 1,015. He recovered from the injury and rushed for 1,000+ yards in each of the next two seasons, setting a new personal high with 1,319 in 1998, he caught 86 passes for 906 yards that year and was the AFC & NFL's leader in total yards from scrimmage with an astounding 2,227, beating out Denver's MVP running back Terrell Davis by 2 yards, while finishing 4th in the league in receptions. It would be the first of an NFL-record 4 consecutive 2,000+ total-yard seasons. Faulk was traded to the St. Louis Rams the following season due to, according to his agent, Rocky Arceneaux, having outplayed his contract. Faulk was considering holding out for a new contract. Colts president Bill Polian did not want his young team's chemistry damaged, so he traded Faulk for second- and fifth-round picks in the upcoming draft (used to draft LB Mike Peterson and

Carreras withdrew their golf sponsorship after the 1976 season; the event started in 1962 as the Piccadilly Number One tournament. Total prize money was £8,000 with a first prize of £2,000; the £2,000 first prize was the largest for a British event, although the total prize was exceeded by the Open Championship's £8,500. The first two rounds were split between Hillside Golf Club and Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club, with one round played on each course.

It was the first important professional tournament in Britain with a planned Sunday finish. The event marked the first British professional appearance of Jack Nicklaus.

The 1966 event was won by Bernard Hunt; the 1967 event was played on 11 October. The winner was Peter Butler.

Because there were no British golfers in the main event, there had been talk of a boycott of this event by some of the British golfers. In the end the PGA issued the boycott came to nothing; the 72-hole stroke play competition, played on the East Course prior to the World Match Play Championship was replaced by a four-ball better-ball match play tournament. 32 pairs competed in each round over 18 holes of the East Course. The plan was to play the first round on Monday 7 October, followed by two rounds on each of the following two days. However, heavy rain on the second day meant that the third round could not be played that day and the final was delayed until Thursday 10 October, the same day as the opening round of the 1968 Piccadilly World Match Play Championship; the winners were Richard Emery and Hugh Jackson who beat Neil Coles and Bryon Hutchinson 2&1 in the final. The winners won £500 each out of the total prize money was £4,000. In 1969 the event became the Piccadilly Medal; this was a knockout stroke-play event with 64 players.

The first round was on 16 July with a 36-hole final on 19 July. The same format was used in 1970 and 1971. In 1972 there was an 18-hole qualifying round at Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club prior to the knockout stage although three players were given an exemption from qualifying. In 1973 qualifying was dropped and field increased to 128 with both the semi-finals and final played on the Saturday; the final event, in 1976, was a 72-hole stroke-play event. Total prize money was increased from £15,000 to £40,000. In 1969 Alliss beat Will with a 4 at the 37th hole. In 1971 Brown retired at the 34th hole with a damaged wrist.
