I had a class with him. Nice guy. There was a running back there, Jay Washington, there about the same time.

Marion actually taught my Sunday school class for a while. I grew up in Clemson and was a teenager when he was in school. Coach McIntyre (DB coach) was our teacher, and he started bringing some players to help teach. Marion ended up coming with him after a while. Then Coach either left Clemson or something, and Marion actually took over teaching our class. He was a great guy!

yep very nice. He intercepted Pat Sullivan in a game and I told him he would be able to tell his grand kids he did that to a Heisman winner.

I was there when he came to our program. I remember no issues with his joining the team, and I remember him as being a class act. He was a great player and a good example of how to handle himself. The prior year our BB team welcomed Craig Mobley as it's first black BB player, and I think the first ever black athlete. Craig was a very good player, and I believe a great person, too. We've come a long way since then.
