Marcus’s first love was football — he played strong safety and wide receiver — but when Todd died, Marcus switched to basketball. “What happened with him kind of intensified the game for me even more,” he says. “Basketball became my love.” He is often told he shares an uncanny resemblance to Todd on the court, with his aggressive style, but Marcus says he does not understand how that is possible. He says he never had a chance to study Todd’s play; a house fire destroyed Todd’s game footage. But Marcus honors Todd with his all-out effort, a trait that coaches have praised for years. “I’ve always played hard,” Marcus says. “That’s how I was raised. But now I’m playing more with a purpose. Now I’m playing not just for myself, I’m playing for my brother, for my family. I’m going to go out there and give it all I have, because he gave it all he had for 18 years, and he lost his battle. I don’t want to lose my battle.” Boston Globe
