An SU favorite. Remarkable to still hold the career interceptions record.
One of our all time greats. It is really sad that we lost him so early. He deserved a moment like this back home, to know that we Syracuse fans have not forgotten him and still love him.

Loved Marcus, we had some real high end talent back then, and he was one of the best of them all
That was right when I first started following SU football as a kid. Markus and Tim Green were the first 2 players that I remember being nationwide good and not just Syracuse good, if you know what I mean.
