Lee Marshall would wake up and go to workouts at 7:45 a.m. or class at 9 a.m., depending on the particular day’s schedule.
He’d head from one to the other, finishing up in the early afternoon, and then off to six-hour work shifts stocking Coca-Cola products from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Homework and studying would cap off a routine that would make most college students cringe at the thought.
But the ULM walk-on, finally back on the football field, can’t help but see the opportunity as a blessing.
“It was hard,” Marshall says of his spring. “But it makes it much easier knowing how much I wanted to play. It’s hard, but, I mean, I can do it.”
The Monroe native wasn’t always sure he’d get the chance.
