Max Robert Marsh (b. Feb. 9, 2001) is a walk-on quarterback-turned-safety majoring in construction science and management from Eaglecrest High School in Centennial, Colo.

He redshirted and did not see any game action in 2020 or 2021, hence the move to safety.

Marsh played three years at Central High School in Grand Junction under his head coach and father, Shawn Marsh, before transferring to Eaglecrest when his father became that school’s head coach prior to his senior year.

He totaled 5,706 yards and 39 touchdowns in his prep career on 388-of-656 aim, while he rushed for 1,314 yards and 13 touchdowns, helping Eaglecrest to earn a 9-3 record and a trip to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs, after which he was named an all-state performer.

Marsh also completed in track and field, as he earned all-conference honors in the 300-meter hurdles and 110-meter hurdles.

His father, Shawn, played college football at Mesa State, and his sister, Madi, was on the track and field team at Wyoming.
