More good news keeps coming out of the McClymonds High football program.
McClymonds running back Ernest Marshall signed a letter of intent over the weekend to play football at Northern Colorado, a Football Championship Subdivision school in Greeley, Col.
Marshall was a first-team Oakland Athletic League All-City selection at running back and also started at linebacker for the Warriors, who went 12-0 and won the Oakland Section’s Silver Bowl. He rushed for 1, 438 yards and 12 touchdowns, including 186 yards and two scores in the 42-26 Silver Bowl win over Fremont.
Marshall was considering attending a junior college to play football before he received interest from Northern Colorado recently. He made a trip to the campus over the weekend and signed during the visit.
“I like the whole feel of the school,” Marshall said. “The coaching staff was amazing. The facilities are amazing. I like the opportunity I have to come and compete for a starting job.
“Nothing can really compare to what I appreciate for the chance to play. It motivates me and strives me to work harder and harder.”
