Boys Varsity Football · Sophomore Marshall already in ‘Beast Mode’

by Felsia Cardenas- KDH Staff Writer


That’s the kind of athlete Killeen football’s Kadarius Marshall aims to be.

“When you need that person to make the big play,” Marshall explained, “I want to be that person everybody depends on.”

He did just that in his first two varsity games.

On Aug. 31, Marshall capped a 17-play, 99-yard drive with a 9-yard touchdown to put the Roos ahead of Stony Point in the middle of the fourth quarter in Killeen’s season opener.

But the sophomore running back was just getting started.

In the Kangaroos’ home opener Thursday against Vista Ridge, Marshall led the Killeen offense, rushing for a total of 192 yards and four touchdowns.
