|Curt Marsh |
Snohomish High School, 1977
Curt Marsh is one of the most decorated high school football athletes to come from the state of Washington. Curt attended Snohomish High School, where he was a member of the 1976 football team that was undefeated and won a state championship. Curt was awarded for his talents by being named the Offensive Lineman of the Year, by Prep Sports. In addition to football, Curt was also a member of the track team and captain of the basketball team at Snohomish.
Curt then went to the University of Washington, where he was a participant on three bowl teams, including two Rose Bowls and a Sun Bowl. An All-Pac 10 selection and 3rd Team All-American his senior year, Curt was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the first round of the 1981 NFL draft. He was the first rookie lineman to start for the Raiders since 1967. In 1983, he played on the Super Bowl championship team that beat the Washington Redskins. Curt played with the Raiders until 1987.
Perhaps the most inspiring aspect of Curt’s life is his willingness to give back to the community. A published author, Curt worked many years with the city of Everett to develop programs for youth at risk, such as Silver Mountain Challenge and Code 10. He ultimately was promoted to a position as Recreation Superintendent before choosing a career as a motivational speaker. Curt resides in Snohomish with his wife and three children.
