Living Legend Donates Football Trophy Room

JM Living Legend Alumni, David Kyle, Donates Football Trophy Room to the New

Athletic Training Facility.

The 1/2" glass doors came from the former Jim Thorpe Museum & Hall of Fame on Lincoln

as it was moving downtown. The large trophy cases were custom made by Reid manufacturing in OKC. The entry to the Terry Harris Athletic Training Facility highlights

the awesome football history of John Marshall, especially the championships.

We are currently looking for additional pictures, stories and memorabilia to add

to the historical data on display.
