Marshall added to Alabama roster


    Leeds High School senior quarterback TaDarryl Marshall was added to the Alabama All-Star roster Tuesday replacing Scottsboro wide receiver Malik Talley.
    Talley left the team for personal reasons.
     Marshall, a Tennessee commitment who quarterbacked Leeds to the Class 4A state championship the last two seasons, is joining the team tonight. He will be considered as an athlete with possible multiple positions including wide receiver, said All-Star head coach Mark Freeman of Thompson High School. “He is a very talented athlete who can help us in a lot of ways,” Freeman said.
    The squad, comprised of 40 high school seniors, will meet play the Mississippi All-Stars Saturday at noon at the University of Southern Mississippi’s M.M. Roberts Stadium. Kickoff is set for noon. The game will be televised live by AHSAA TV partner Raycom Media.
    Alabama holds a 22-7 edge in the series which began in 1988.  This will be the first time the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star football game is being played outside the state of Alabama. The game is a product of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA) in conjunction with the Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC). MAC is serving the host this year.
    Marshall was named MVP of the 2014 Class 4A state championship game won over Deshler 30-0 at Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium. Last week, he directed Coach Keith Etheredge’s Green Wave to a 55-7 win over Fayette County at the University of Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
    He finished the season 54-opf-99 passing for 912 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for 951 yards and 12 scores on 126 carries and finished his career with 3,739 yards rushing and 33 TDs on 491 carries and was 226-of-458 passing for 3,772 yards and 38 scores.
    He is expected to play wide receiver in Saturday’s game.
