Diamond in the Rough: Marcus Clark

Marcus Clark is the type of running back who packs way more into his game than it would appear at first glance. He may only stand at 5’8”, but don’t underestimate this young man’s ability to run the football at a very efficient rate. He has helped carry the Kenner Discovery (Kenner, La) team to a 7-3 overall record and will appear in the playoffs at home this Friday against a 3-7 Archbishop Hannan (Covington, La) team. 

Marcus is not only a dynamic running back but also plays on the defensive side of the ball at free safety, and is also featured as a returner and special teams player. Regardless of the position on the field that he is put at, he will work to perfect it if it means it will give his team a better chance at winning football games and making a run at the 2022 State Championship.
