Marshall Anderson was a multi-sport star at Riverside Poly High School in the 1950’s. In football, he was an exceptional All-Citrus Belt League running back in 1953. As a sprinter in track, he ran a 9.9 100-yard dash and a 21.9 220-yard dash and in his senior year was named to the All- Citrus Belt League in 1954.
Out of school and working, Marshall later returned to football at Riverside City College, where he was Most Valuable Player and All-Eastern Conference player on the 1960 championship team. In Track, he shattered many school records before being named to the All Citrus Belt League Conference team. Marshall also competed in the High Jump and Long Jump competitions while at RCC.
Marshall has lived in Riverside his entire life and has contributed immensely to the Eastside community and the greater Riverside community as well. Early on, he had an understanding of the importance of giving back to his community and demonstrated that belief by being a volunteer coach and positive role model for 25 years in Little League Baseball at Patterson Park and for Riverside Junior Tackle Football. During this time, Marshall has helped countless young people to achieve their individual and team goals through education and athletics.
