With the Good Counsel student section at times chanting that nickname during the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference football championship on Sunday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Marshall threw three touchdown passes to senior Kendall Fuller in a 26-14 win over No. 7 DeMatha. It marked the top-ranked Falcons’ fourth consecutive WCAC title.
Marshall injured his right knee last week in the semifinals against St. John’s and did not return to action until late in the week.
“I knew I was going to play, I [just] didn’t know how well I was going to feel,” said the 6-foot-5, 215-pounder, who at times rode an exercise bike on the Good Counsel sideline to stay loose.
Marshall completed 15 of 24 passes to seven receivers for 198 yards. His three touchdowns were only one shy of his season total.
