Personal Message

My name is Marcus Yarns and I am a class of 2020 running back that attends Parkside High School, Salisbury, MD. It has always been my goal to get my degree and compete at the college level. I am a natural leader who brings the juice to a team. I work hard to achieve my goals, my coaches’ goals, and the overall team goals. I am a person that is intelligent, curious, and hardworking. I am a natural leader who plans and prepares extensively for every task I face. My team mates find my demeanor and character approachable, reliable, and trustworthy.

Football is a sport that has taught me it is more than just a game. Football has taught me life skills that I will use long after I stop playing the game. I am willing to make any sacrifice for the team. As a running back, I am a north and south runner, explosive with good vision. I would like to get my degree in Business. All I am looking for is the opportunity to showcase my ability as a football player. If given the chance I will show you that the risk you may feel you are taking will be outweighed by the reward you will gain by having me in your program. Any consideration for your 2020 class would be greatly appreciated!
