Marshall top QB in BC

Jason Marshall is a 6-2, 200-pound quarterback prospect from North Vancouver (BC) Carson Graham Secondary, and Marshall was the toast of British Columbia last year as Carson Graham ripped Vancouver College in the AAA Provincial Championship 41-8. Jason was named MVP of the game. In that game, Marshall threw all day to Nevada signee Tony Strong. Tony is gone, and Jason is starting to map out his future, one that just might see him head south to play collegiate football too.

"We just blew them away," Marshall told about that day. "I was speechless after the game. I never expected it to be that way. It was crazy." He acknowledges that a repeat may not be in the works. "It's going to be hard. We lost most of our team. We just need to work hard and see what happens."

Jason was 97-189 for 1700 yards and 25 scores last year for Carson Graham. He was intercepted 8 times. Much like Jon Conlin and Konrad Wasiela, Marshall is another canadian prep player looking to take his game south, so he also went down to the NW NIKE camp to match his skills with some of the best quarterbacks in the west.

"I liked it," he said of his NIKE camp experience. "There were a lot of quarterbacks there, so it was hard to stand out. I just wanted to see what my chances were. I thought they were alright. I really didn't get a chance to shine." He ran a 4.8 40, 4.3 shuttle, jumped 27 inches in the vertical jump and benched 185 pounds 11 times.

He enjoyed Eugene so much, he went down again later that month. "I went to the Oregon team camp," he said. "It was fun. I liked it. I'm also training with Robert Hollard at the Program."

Will Jason get a chance to take his play to the next level? "I have schools up here talking to me, but I don't want to go to a school in Canada," he said. "I want to go down to the States. I would like to hear from Pac-10 schools, but I don't know if that's realistic. West coast schools...those are the schools I want to hear from." Top Stories
