Georgia Bulldogs senior running back Keith Marshall graduated from college this morning and had nothing but good things to say about the university. Speaking to Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Marshall further elaborated.
“I’m not one of those guys that has a lot of regrets or dwells on things in the past. My main focus right now is just preparing myself for the future. Everything happens for a reason. I think Georgia did a great job of preparing me for the real world on and off the field. So I’ll take what I learned here and move on.”
Marshall received a degree in finance from Georgia and still hopes to play football. He came to Athens as a five-star recruit out of Raleigh and rushed for 759 yards and eight touchdowns his freshman year, but a knee injury relegated him to change-of-pace work over his final tree seasons.
The good news is that if Marshall’s football career doesn’t pan out, he has quite the fallback option. All too often student-athletes enter school thinking that everything will work out beautifully regarding their athletics careers, only to not have anything to rely on if it doesn’t pan out.
Marshall has proven determined to not become a statistic, and that should only help him in his future.
