2013 JJHuddle Ohio HS Football Player of the Year
Marshon Lattimore, Glenville
AP D-II Ohio co-Defensive Player of the Year considered one of the country’s top prospects. Lattimore has over 20 scholarship offers including Michigan State. Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee and UCLA. His short list includes Ohio State, Alabama, Oregon and USC. “He’s an elite guy. In high school they don’t come along often like that,” Glenville head coach Ted Ginn said. “He’s a hell of a athlete, a good kid and a good student. Athletically he’s in the top 5 that I’ve ever seen in my life. You don’t find them like that too often. He’s a special guy. One of a kind.” Lattimore is among six finalists for the U.S. Army National High School Football Player of the Year award. As a receiver Lattimore hauled in 15 TDs.
