Warren Keith Marshall Sr. completed his JMU career as the football team's all-time rushing leader, and he still held that distinction by a wide margin when he was inducted into JMU's Sports Hall of Fame. While playing for the Dukes from 1982-86, he ran for 4,168 yards, a figure that at the end of his career was the best rushing mark by a Virginia college player and the fifth-best mark in Division I-AA history.

Marshall set JMU's single-game rushing record of 264 yards in a 1986 victory over unbeaten and third-ranked William and Mary, and he set team career records of 20 100-yard rushing games, three 1,000-yard rushing seasons, 737 rushing attempts and 34 touchdowns. He had 29 career rushing touchdowns and caught five touchdown passes. His 208 career points still ranked second in team history and his 29 rushing touchdowns third at the time of his induction.

The High Point, N.C., native ran for 691 yards and eight touchdowns in 1982 as a freshman, for two yards before suffering a season-ending injury in 1983, for 1,010 yards and eight touchdowns in 1984, for 1,181 yards and four touchdowns in 1985, and for 1,284 yards and nine touchdowns in 1986. He had 45 career pass receptions for 453 yards and was a three-time honorable mention All-America choice by the Associated Press and a two-time All-Virginia first-team choice by the Roanoke Times & World News.

Marshall was the Denver Broncos' sixth-round selection in the 1987 National Football League draft.
