Marshall Football: What Ever Happen to...

With Marshall’s second bye week in full effect, we figured it was a good time to catch-up with players that have left the football program and continued their careers at other schools.

1) Marques Aiken, Defensive Tackle, Cincinnati

Reunited with current Bearcats and former Marshall assistant Fred Tate, Marques Aiken has played in all of Cincinnati’s six games, registering 12 tackles, 1.5 for loss, and a half sack.

2) C.J. Crawford, Tight End, Charlotte

Playing for UNC Charlotte’s first football team since 1948, tight end C.J. Crawford is the 49ers fourth leading receiver with 237 yards on 20 catches and four touchdowns.

3) A.J. Graham, Quarterback, University of Pikeville (Ky.)

A.J. Graham has found a home at the NAIA level with the University of Pikeville. The Bears starting quarterback, Graham has completed 62% of his pass attempts for 1,360 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions. A dual threat, he has also rushed for 207 yards.

4) James Power, Long Snapper, TCU

After not playing a single snap in his Marshall career, long snapper James Power transferred to TCU and found a starting job with the Horned Frogs. It’s hard to quantify a long snappers effectiveness but, TCU has not suffered a block kick or punt this year.

5) Eddie Sullivan, Quarterback, Western Carolina

In his second season at Western Carolina, Eddie Sullivan is splitting snaps with fellow quarterback Troy Mitchell. Sullivan has appeared in six of the Catamounts seven games, making two starts while completing 25 of 53 attempts for 310 yards with no touchdowns and five interceptions.  

6) Travon Van, Running Back , Montana

Last seen playing cornerback for the Thundering Herd, Travon Van has found a home at running back with the Montana Grizzlies. Despite splitting carries, Van has rushed for 465 yards on 69 attempts, good for 6.3 yards per carry. Displaying soft hands out of the backfield, he is Montana’s third leading receiver with 172 yards. In total, Van has scored five touchdowns this season.
