Football: Cimarron-Memorial High grad Brandon Marshall will play special teams for Denver Broncos, some four months after being cut by Jacksonville
Brandon Marshall wasn’t good enough for an invitation to this football recruiting camp. During the summer before his senior year at Cimarron-Memorial High, Marshall wasn’t deemed a high enough college prospect to earn a spot at the Nike camp in Los Angeles. Mike Waters, his trainer, had to make a few calls to get Marshall, an undersized running back and linebacker, included. “He’s always felt like he was the underdog,” Waters said.
