Marshall signs with Murray State

Thursday, February 2, 2006

CHARLESTON -- Josh Marshall, a 6-foot, 185-pound defensive back from Charleston, signed a letter of intent to play at Murray State University on Wednesday.

Marshall played for his dad Al Marshall at Charleston High School where he was one of the Bluejays' top offensive and defensive players.

He was named an all-conference quarterback and safety as a senior.

"Josh is a great athlete with great football savvy," said MSU assistant Mark Lister. "He's a student of the game and he also played quarterback in high school."

Marshall's football knowledge and instincts were his greatest assets as he had 60 tackles and four interceptions from his defensive back position. He ran back two interceptions for scores for the 7-3 Bluejays.

As a quarterback, Marshall threw for 1,075 yards, completing 52-of-116 passes with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.

He also ran for 251 yards on 77 carries with 10 touchdowns. Marshall was second on the Bluejays with 12 touchdowns scored this season.

As a junior, he helped lead Charleston to an 8-3 record and a district championship.
