When the Auburn Tigers were down 21-7 against Alabama they never panicked. They stuck with their game plan. They made adjustments, but they never swayed from what they do best and that’s run the ball. The leader of their offense, quarterback Nick Marshall, has a knack for keeping calm and leading his team to victory. He’s been doing it ever since high school.
Justin Hokanson of AuburnSports.com, just wrote a story about how Marshall led his high school team to a Georgia state championship in the Georgia Dome. Marshall’s Wilcox County High was down 21-14 in the fourth quarter in the 2009 1-A title game. Marshall scored on a 5-yard touchdown run and added a two-point conversion. Then Marshall added another touchdown and he led his school to a 30-21 championship victory. In fact, in four of their five playoff games that year, Marshall brought his team back from fourth quarter deficits.
Now, as the signal caller for Auburn, Marshall led the Tigers to fourth quarter comebacks against Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Georgia and Alabama. So what makes him and this offense so dangerous? Justin joins us on this Google Hangout to discuss.
