Hey my name is Marquis Marshall and I'm 15 years old. I'm 5'8, I play football, and basketball. My favorite thing to do is play football. I could play it all day an night. I play for the Collierville Dragons in Collierville, Tennessee and run a 4.57 in the 40. On the field I play running back and linebacker. On the court I play shooting guard and point guard. The most points I've scored playing is 36 points. I was 7 for 9 from 3 point range.
What was your best game?
My best football game would have to be against Southwind High School two days ago. I scored the opening kickoff which was a 92 yards return. I had 14 key tackles, one sack, and I saved the game. Even though I got hurt, it was still my best game.
How do you make your team better?
I never put my team down. If we miss I tell them that we will make up for it next time , if we need a big play I tell the coach to put me in and I can do it. Now, every time we need a big play the coaches call on me " Dr. Marshall". I'm a team leader and I do all I can to help my team. My team is my life until the season is over.
Who is your favorite player? Why?
My favorite player is Ray Lewis. He is the best linebacker to ever play the game to me. My favorite thing to do is watch him play no matter if they're winning or losing. My favorite basketball player is Lebron James. He is the best player in the NBA to me. I think he is the greatest player besides Michael Jordan who's the best of all times.
Why are sports/education important to you?
I think sports can take you a long way along with a great education. A good education will take us a lot farther in life than sports.
What advice can you give other student-athletes?
Just always keep your head up and play your game. Work hard for you and nobody else.
