Marshall Goldberg, a former All-American football player, died Monday at age 88 in Chicago. He died after battling brain injuries caused by concussions during his playing days, his wife said. A two-way player in college, Goldberg starred at the University of Pittsburgh in 1937 and 1938, finishing as runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 1938. As a professional, he made several all pro-teams as a defensive back and helped the Chicago Cardinals win the NFL championship in 1947. Goldberg is a member of several halls of fame, including the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame.
