The injury bug has been hanging up at Southfield high school lately. 2014 DT Malik McDowell was injured but still played in last Friday's game. CB/WR Ray Buford has been out with a knee injury after the first game with Cass Tech; he is expected to be back be the playoffs. Now it's Lawrence Marshall, who was going to play in the game last Friday but didn't because he was injured.
"I was banged for this game," he told GoBlueWolverine. "The team could have used me, but I felt like our younger guys did very well out there. I will be ready to go next week."
Marshall was not forth-coming about the details of his injury, and with the way he was moving around after the game I would expect that he would be available for next week's contest. What Marshall was willing to discuss was how his relationship is continuing to evolve with the Michigan coaching staff - which is unaffected by the loss last Saturday.
"We have a strong bond together -- it is an unbreakable bond right now, I mean I love those guys. The advice that they are giving me right now is to just continue to go hard all the time."
Marshall was just up at Michigan a few weeks ago for the ND game to see his future staff and teammates and enjoy the atmosphere.
"I was glad to be up there. It went well - they got the win. So Go Blue."
Southfield high will have to get all of their weapons back on the field to be all that they can be come state playoff time. The goal for this team is state title or bust -- and to have Marshall healthy and ready to play at a high level will be a big step towards that goal.
