Minnesota RB/DB Signs With Marshall

Marshall Football received a signed letter of intent from a Minnesota running back who chalked up over 1300 yards in 2002 as a senior...

Marcus Fitzgerald is a 5-10, 192 pound running back/defensive back from Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield, Minnesota.

We tracked down the coach of Marcus Fitzgerald in Minnesota for an exclusive interview. "A very, very physical player," was coach Mike Tendino's reply when asked about Fitzgerald's abilities. "He's very deceiving. He makes the first guy miss all the time."

Fitzgerald ran for 1,300 yards in 2002, including one game in which he carried the ball 34 times for 228 yards. As a defensive back, Marcus can "cover the whole field for you," said Tendino.

An interesting side note is that Marcus Fitzgerald is the brother of Pitt freshman All-American receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
