The Colorado School of Mines is getting one of the best and more under-appreciated quarterbacks in all of Texas. Introducing Tomball Memorial’s Colton Marwill.
“For one, Mines has one of the best engineering programs in the nation and that was huge for me, getting that degree will set me up for a lifetime of success. Also, I really like the coaching staff and the offense, it fits my playstyle perfectly,” Marwill explained. “Another huge plus is the location, there are countless things to do in Colorado that will be extremely fun in the offseason.”
Marwill is a 5’11 185-pound pro-style quarterback from plays for Memorial. He received offers from the School of Mines as well as Davidson but settled on Mines.
Marwill was a machine for Memorial last year. He led them to a 10-2 record overall, 7-1 in district play, and reached the area round of the 6A D2 playoffs, securing the schools’ first-ever playoff win along the way.
In Memorial’s spread offense, Marwill completed 62% of his passes for 2,844 yards with 29 touchdowns to just seven interceptions. He also ran for 552 yards and six more touchdowns. With this, he was a unanimous first-team all-district selection.
“My passion for the game of football. I am extremely competitive and I’ll do whatever it takes to have success in anything I do,” Marwill said on what leads to his success.
In 2020, Memorial will move to a new district. After posting the most wins in school history in a season they now join a district with Klein, Klein Cain, Klein Collins, Klein Forest, Klein Oak, and rival Tomball.
Marwill though is excited about what his senior season could bring.
“I’m excited to come out firing this senior season and win district. We can’t wait to let everyone know who Tomball Memorial is. Our goal is to go 1-0 every week. I expect to have a big playoff run this year,” the star signal-caller said.
Marwill is one of the most impressive guys we have in the world of High School Football. A baller on the field every Friday night, who’s also a future engineer. Memorial put the world on notice in 2019, now Marwill looks to make a run in 2020.
Colorado’s School of Mines is getting a great kid.
“Fans should know I’m a closer. If we have the ball in the fourth quarter, we’ve always got a shot to win. Always.”
