Nick Marshall (born June 30, 1992) is an American football quarterback for the Auburn University Auburn Tigers.

Early years[edit]

Marshall was born in Pineview, Georgia and attended high school at Wilcox County High School in Rochelle, Georgia.

College career[edit]

Marshall began his college career as a cornerback for the 2011 Georgia Bulldogs football team.[1] After being dismissed from the team for an undisclosed violation of team rules, Marshall transferred to Garden City Community College where he was the starting quarterback in 2012 and led the team to a 7-4 record while scoring 37 touchdowns (19 rushing, 18 passing), passing for 3,142 yards, and becoming the team’s leading rusher with 1,095 yards.[2] After one season with Garden City Community College, Marshall again transferred to the Auburn Tigers football team with the hope of playing quarterback.

Starting quarterback for Auburn[edit]

On August 17, 2013, Marshall was named starting quarterback for the Auburn Tigers football team.[3] This came after a four-man heated race for the position in head coach Gus Malzahn's newly installed offense which saw 2012 starting quarterback Kiehl Frazier transfer to safety on the defensive side of the ball.[4]

Marshall was instrumental in the Auburn Tiger football turnaround under head coach Gus Malzahn which began the 2013 season 9-1 while beating the #24 (AP Poll) Ole Miss Rebels and #6 (AP Poll) Texas A&M Aggies. On November 16, 2013, Marshall was the quarterback behind a play known as "The Prayer at Jordan-Hare" when he threw a 73-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to Ricardo Lewis on a 4th-and-18 with 36 seconds left to beat #25 ranked Georgia.[5]
