Student Athlete Profile: Kevin Marshall
What is a leader? What is Drake Athletics? It is not too often you find someone who can understand these ideas let alone live them. Kevin Marshall encompasses everything that defines what it means to be a leader and what Drake Athletics is all about. Kevin was elected team captain for the 2013 Bulldog football team, as well as attaining Dean's List his final semester before graduating in December 2013 as a Biochemistry, Cellular, and Molecular Biology (BCMB) major. As the voice for Drake football, Kevin influenced his teammates to volunteer, partake in leadership initiatives, and motivated his teammates to win two conference titles. Kevin’s character is truly inspiring and he not only empowered teammates through talk, but action as well. Kevin streamlined the process of drafting 7-year-old Jack Conlon to be an honorary member of the football team. Jack is currently undergoing cancer treatments for a brain tumor and Drake’s football team openly embraced Jack as family. Drake has wholeheartedly committed to helping Jack fight his battle with cancer.
