Brock Marion (1989-92/Football)





Brock Marion, who hails from Bakersfield, Calif., was a four-year starter for the Wolf Pack football team from 1989-92 spending his first three seasons at cornerback and his senior season at strong safety. A stalwart presence on Nevada’s Division 1-AA power house teams of the early 90s, he compiled 303 tackles and 13 interceptions and broke up an additional 44 passes in his career, leading the Wolf Pack secondary in tackles in each of his four seasons. Nevada earned three consecutive conference titles in Marion’s final three years, and he was an All-Big Sky and All-Big West performer from 1990-92. Taken in the seventh round of the 1993 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, Marion went on to spend 12 seasons in the NFL, starting for the Cowboys, Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions. He was a three time Pro Bowl selection (2000, 2002, 2003) and finished his professional career with 31 interceptions.
