“Leader” is not a word that is losely used when describing Garden City Communty College’s quarterback Nick Marshall, #7. The guy I sat down and talked with didn’t have to say he was a leader for me to know it, I felt it.
“He has one of those personality’s that everyone gravitates to, when a guy is about to do something that will get him into trouble, Nick might grab n’ pull him aside and tell him the consequences of that choice,” Head Coach Jeff Tatum, said.
From Pineview, GA, this six foot two, 210-pound phenom is averaging 272 yards passing per game and 1356 yards on the season. With 11 throwing touchdowns through 5 games, and another 9 rushing touchdowns he is a definite force.
At the homecoming game this past weekend versus Fort Scott, Marshall had a huge game with over 600 all-purpose yards. Passing for 366 yards with 17 completions, and 241 yards on the ground with 20 carries, he left little undone.
All of these feats are great, but the fact that he also takes his leadership off the field is truly humbling.
