Description Edwin Mulitalo Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Plaque commemorating Edwin Mulitalo of Jefferson High School being inducted into Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame, sponsored by The San Mateo County/ Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, on June 13, 2012. Plaque includes image of Mulitalo and a brief biography: "Even as a raw teenager on Daly City, he was an immovable football force. At Jefferson, he lettered in three sports: football, wrestling and track and field, but it was in football that he achieved the most fame. After two years at an Idaho community college, he matriculated to the University of Arizona where he blossomed, at 6-3 and 345 pounds, into a powerful drive-blocking mainstay on the offensive line. A fourth-round NFL draft pick by Baltimore in 1999, he played for that franchise for eight years, winning a Super Bowl ring at the turn of the century. He spent two NFL seasons with Detroit. During his pro career, he started 128 games." Plaque is wood with an acrylic label attached to front with four screws, one in each corner. Wood has a hole in center top, as well as two grooves on back (one on the left and one on top below the hole), for mounting.
