Final Time In Nippert Marcus Waugh

Friday's game against Illinois was the final time the senior members of the 2009 University of Cincinnati football team took to the Nippert Stadium turf. We take a short look back at each of them and now look at Marcus Waugh.

Marcus Waugh – Toledo St. Johns Jesuit

Class of 2005

My first encounter with Marcus came at the Ohio North / South game just prior to Marcus heading to campus. What I saw was a kid who didn't care what position he played but just that he was playing a game he truly loved.

Over the years Marcus has always been one of the guys I've truly believed would tear off his foot if it would bring his team a victory. He's given so much to the program with his moves from fullback, linebacker, offensive line and back again I've almost forgot how many different positions he played. Marcus never would say a negative about any move and just did what the coaches asked. He's a fighter and I'm sure will have great success after his playing career.

One of the things that come with covering the team is getting to know many of the families. I've had the great pleasure getting to know Tom and Pam Waugh over the years and will miss their friendship and support they've given me.
