George Preston Marshall, owner and president of the National Football League’s Washington Redskins from 1932 – 1969, suffered a debilitating stroke in 1963 after being named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A stroke can happen to anyone at any time. Knowing how to recognize and help someone who is experiencing a stroke can greatly improve their chances of living and decrease long-term effects.
