As a player, Marshall started 36 out of 45 career games from 2007-09. He was a member of the 2007 team that advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16, and was also on the team that won the 2008 Big East Championship and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight. At one point, USF held the third longest home winning streak in NCAA history, going 32 games unbeaten at home (26-0-6).
Marshall finished his USF career with three goals and three assists. He was also a member of the USF track and field team. He finished his running career as an All Big East Team selection (2008-2010) and was a part of USF’s record-breaking 4x100 meter relay in 2010.
Prior to transferring to USF, Marshall spent his freshman year at Stetson University where he was captained by current JU Head Coach Mauricio Ruiz. Marshall amassed six goals and four assists at Stetson to earn a spot on the Atlantic Sun Freshman All-Conference Team. He also scored the game-winning goal in the 2005 Atlantic Sun Conference Championship, earning a spot on the A-Sun All-Tournament Team and sending Stetson to its first NCAA Tournament appearance in school history.
A Florida native, Marshall attended Lincoln High School in Tallahassee where he was a three-time captain from 2003-2005, a three-sport standout and a team MVP on the soccer field during his junior and senior seasons. He was a three-time All Big Bend honoree, while also being crowned Big Bend Player of the Year and named to the Admiral All-Tournament team during his senior year, after career highs in goals (26) and assists (24). Marshall left Lincoln High school as the all-time leader in career points (229) with 82 career goals and 65 career assists.
He was also a part of the nationally-ranked track and field team at Lincoln. During his senior season, Marshall was a part of the fastest 4x100 relay in Florida state history, clocking a 40.54 at the Seminole Invitational. In 2005, he became a Nike Outdoor Track & Field All-American, after his 4x100 relay took first place at the 2005 Nike Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
