Marshall Jaeger was a two-sport athletic star at Napa High School and a student leader whose football prowess earned him a scholarship to U. C. Berkeley. Jaeger was a two-year starter at forward for the Napa Indian basketball team. He was captain of the 1958-59 team. He was also the winner of the trophy for best free throw percentage and was one of the top scorers on the team. Jaeger’s strong and accurate arm earned him the starting quarterback position on the 1957 co-championship football team. He was Second Team All-NBL quarterback in 1957, and First Team All-NBL quarterback in 1958. He also won the award as best back on the 1958 team. Jaeger was a popular student leader during his high school years. He was junior class president, junior class representative, two years on the Honor Roll, a delegate to Boys State in Sacramento, voted the Most Popular Senior Male in 1958, and served as student body president during his senior year. He attended the University of California, Berkeley on a football scholarship. Like all of the Napa High students of his era, Jaeger had only two years of athletic and scholastic performance, but he made the most of his time on the Napa campus by being a student leader and excelling on the football field, the basketball court, and in the classroom.
