This week, Center Field has decided to take on a challenge unlike any that came before it. We’ll examine the question that we all want the answer to: which Marist jersey is the best of the best?
Former Marist kicker and current New York Jet Jason Myers was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster as the lone kicker during last night’s roster reveal: his first and the first representative for Marist in the NFL’s All-Star game equivalent.
He moved to Maryland, 8,000 miles from what had always been home, in Dec. 2011. His family had to move; Civil Wars and poverty were two main implications, both on a severe level.
The honor was announced on Monday afternoon by the MAAC and Marist Athletics.
There was no shortage of fireworks on Saturday night at Tenney Stadium. While those in the sky were celebratory, those on the field were in a manner of frustration, as the Red Foxes lost both tonight’s game and their star for the next.
Year by year, more athletic departments across the country are adapting to a new type of athlete, one that does not run, jump and lift weights. This athlete is a gamer, a true gamer that sits in front of a screen using their quick twitch fingers to control the virtual world.
The Marist College Athletic Department has announced that they have fired head basketball coach Mike Maker after four seasons with the program. The decision comes just under a week after Athletic Director Tim Murray told Center Field that Maker would be staying on for another season.
