The Cougars are 40-6 on the field the last four years and made the
deepest run ever in the state playoffs by a Dayton City League team last
season. A prolific double wing run offense fueled by confusion and
talent produced 767 points last year (54.5 per game) as Marshall
surpassed 60 points in half (seven) its games.

*Dayton Thurgood Marshall (12-2, Region 12 champions): The Cougars are 40-6 on the field the last four years and made the deepest run ever in the state playoffs by a Dayton City League team last season. A prolific double wing run offense fueled by confusion and talent produced 767 points last year (54.5 per game) as Marshall surpassed 60 points in half (seven) its games.

The catalyst this year is senior RB/DB Vayante Copeland (6-0, 183) who is a JJHuddle 2014 Top 100 player. Copeland, a four-year starter who rushed for 2,028 yards and 25 TDs last year and has 17 career INTs, holds offers from Michigan State, Minnesota, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Indiana, Duke, Louisville and Pittsburgh.

Also back is junior QB Jamahl Manley (6-1, 200) who was first team All-City League.

Replacing three first team all-league offensive lineman (and four starters) is key.

On defense, the Cougars must replace five first team all-league players. Key returners to the unit are senior DL Jeff Manley Jr. (6-1, 245/56 tackles), senior DB Dangelo Martin (6-5, 207/92 tackles, two INTs) and junior DB Mike Mills (5-10, 162/49 tackles, two INTs).

Keep an eye out for the junior trio of LB Dante Pinson, WR Brian Carter and K Antonio Camberos.

The schedule, despite being just nine games right now, includes tests in Northmont, Chaminade Julienne, Alter, Winton Woods and Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary.
