Keith Marshall has been through two straight seasons full of injuries and is entering his senior season with the Georgia Bulldogs in 2015.
They may or may not have a big role planned for him, but he is more than capable of making an impact if he is given consistent playing time. There is a video going around that features the running back saying he feels better than ever since he started playing for Georgia, which is a very good sign.
Throughout the three seasons that Marshall has played, he has carried the football 185 times for 1,029 yards and nine touchdowns. He has played a total of just 22 games, which shows just how much he has been injured throughout his career.
Looking ahead at the 2015 season, Georgia is going to have quite a few talented running backs to choose from.
The Bulldogs will have Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, who were both extremely impressive last season. Marshall is going to have to work extremely hard to beat out those two players, but he is without question up to that challenge.
While the injuries have knocked him down, they haven’t been able to keep him away from the game that he loves. Marshall wants to give it one last ditch effort to make a run at a starting job, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get back on-the-field and finish his career strong.
Head coach Mark Richt is a very loyal coach and he will give Marshall as much playing time as he can depending on how the running back looks.
Expect to see him prove himself during the upcoming season and to show that perseverance pays off.
Marshall came into his college football career with the potential to be special and he is looking to prove that to be a true fact even with all of the injuries he has suffered through.
Georgia’s running game is going to be good as usual, and it will be interesting to see whether or not Marshall has a hand in it or not.
