QB Marshyl Rothman

If you look in a dictionary under people who should be on this website, Marshyl Rothman is the first person listed, I promise. As a Palm Beach County native, I feel for this kid. He does everything right, performs at a high level, yet is still fairly unknown in the grand scheme of things. Here's the thing: I haven't really had the opportunity to see him play as much as I would like to, as I am usually watching my secondary get toasted for the fourth time while he is tossing a game winning TD pass. However, every time I have seen him play live, I leave the stadium wondering why he isn't a hot commodity in the recruiting world. Just take a look at this.

"As a junior, Rothman led Jupiter Christian to their second straight State Championship and was named First Team All-State. He is now 27-1 as a varsity starter. Rothman threw for over 1500 yards while completing 67% of his passes with 25 touchdowns. He added over 800 yards on the ground and another 9 scores. He boasts an impressive 3.97 shuttle time." (c/o

Well...I guess the only thing left is to watch the film. What do you guys think? Scout has him listed at 5'10 174. Can he play at a legit D1 college with this kind of size? From what I can see on film, not only can he make the throws, but he has active feat and knows the game. Take a look at some of his touchdown runs. His lineman are sprinting 30, 40 yards to throw him up in the air. Subtle things like this tell you he is a warrior on the field, and well respected by all of his teammates. Currently, he holds a single offer from Georgia Southern. That's it. Put it like this, the numbers don't lie. His schedule is going to be a bit tougher this year, so that could be a true test of his ability, but honestly, he has a chance to win three straight State Championships with pretty damn good stats. As one of my college coaches once said, "Give him a look!"


  1. How about D2 NW MO St in Maryville, MO?! They have been in the Championship Game about every year for the past 5....

    ....This kid looks like the real deal. What about FIU or FAU? OR even Central Florida or South Florida?

  2. this kid reminds me alot of clhs quarter back christian parsons. look him up on youtube.
