Marlon, a 2017 graduate of Carthage Central High School, is majoring in Humanities and Social Sciences at Jefferson. Richardson’s accomplishments on the court this past week include being a team leader. He has been with the program for two years and has put his heart and soul into it. Marlon has taken on a much more advanced leadership role this year and has been responsible for the continued improvement of this team. He is currently averaging 6 points and 5 assists per game. As a defender, Marlon is assigned to defend the opposing team’s best player. It is his tireless work rate that has become infectious for other players on the team. He has become a true leader and has been a real pleasure to coach.
