Here are junior season highlights of Trotwood (Ohio) Trotwood-Madison quarterback Marcus Graham…
Marcus Graham Is One To Watch
Trotwood-Madison had a fine season in 2009, advancing deep into Ohio's playoff's, and one of the reasons was the play of junior quarterback Marcus Graham. Graham, 6-foot-2, 195-pounds, is one of the top athletes in Ohio, and he also stars in basketball for the Rams. He is the nephew of former Ohio State and NFL star Jeff Graham. "I think I had a pretty good year as a junior," Graham said. "I had to adjust to a new offense, going from a spread as a sophomore to being more balanced as a junior." "The change was a blessing for me because I grew into a better quarterback last year," he continued. "I learned more about reading coverages and managing a game. I'm looking forward to my third year as a varsity starter at quarterback, and I'm working on being better as a senior." One of the benefits of playing for the Rams is being able to be tutored by former NFL player Maurice Douglass, the head coach, who brings that experience to the program. "I've learned a lot being here, and my strength would be the ability to throw the football," he stated. "Right now, I'm working on my footwork, being better at all my different drops. I'm also working on my mechanics, being exactly on time delivering the football. I'm fortunate to be coached by this great staff." Graham has drawn the attention of college recruiters, and he currently has an offer from Bowling Green. He is hopeful more are on the way. "I have an offer from Bowling Green and I like them a lot," he explained. "I was there a few years ago with my dad, and I plan on going back this spring. My dad played at Bowling Green and that means a lot to me." "I'm visiting Toledo this weekend," he said. "They are a good program and I was there for a junior day in February. I got along well with the coaches and I felt comfortable there. They felt like they were a family up there. I'm also going to visit Kentucky for their spring game. I'm also hearing from West Virginia, Oregon and Buffalo. I'm also going to go to a lot of college camps this summer."
