COACH'S QUOTE – "Jordan Marshall amazes me every day! He's not only a tremendous football player, but a phenomenal young man. His athletic ability is obviously off the charts, but his football IQ and understanding of the game are the best I've been around. Jordan exemplifies the definition of a student-athlete with his success in the classroom, his presence in the community, and his athletic accomplishments. He is a TRUE Man of Moeller."
