The Word on the Herd-Feb. 3, 2016
Doc Holliday’s seventh National Signing Day at Marshall was pretty typical of the Thundering Herd football coach.
In 2012, Hammer headed from Fort Collins, Colo., to Navarro College in Texas, hoping a junior-college avenue as a shortstop would be the quickest route to pro baseball. Instead, he morphed into an NCAA Division I pitching prospect.
Morgan Zerkle has enjoyed a very impressive 2015. The Marshall softball center fielder batted a Conference USA- and school-record .506, kept swiping bases at a record pace, and was honored as an Academic All-American second team selection.
Marshall cornerback Keith Baxter will play his final college football game in the St. Petersburg Bowl.
Doc Holliday may like Bing Crosby’s wartime holiday hit, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” Who knows?
Bill Legg might still need his corrective lenses, but he doesn’t need to read statistics to see the challenge that Marshall faces in Connecticut’s defense in the St. Petersburg Bowl.
With the St. Petersburg Bowl approaching on Saturday, most of the talk among Marshall’s football players about their Dec. 26 opponent at Tropicana Field has focused on two items.
Among the 24 players from Florida on the Marshall football roster for the St. Petersburg Bowl, there are seven who call home within an hour’s drive to Tropicana Field.
Marshall basketball Coach Matt Daniel has a “new” player on his roster this season. She’s a junior, but she’s not a JUCO product or a Division I transfer.
When Alex Mirabal arrived at Marshall as offensive line coach in February 2013, he heard a lot about two Herd youngsters who had no resumes … and what he heard wasn’t good.
