Donnie Marsh is regarded as one of F&M's finest basketball players. He also was an outstanding baseball player and coach. In basketball, he helped F&M through four highly successful years on the court--including a third place finish in the 1979 NCAA Division III National championships. He was a starting guard for four years.
His deft playmaking and defensive talents were overshadowed in his final two years by his alley-oop dunks, fast break jams, and his point production--which ended with Donnie holding the F&M record for most career points: 1,695. He also holds the single seasons scoring mark with 601 points. He was named to the Middle Atlantic Conference All-Star team for four years, was the conference MVP for three years, and earned All-American honors in 1977 and 1979. He was selected the ECAC Division III Player of the Year. He was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA in the third round. He was captain of both the basketball and baseball teams in his senior year, and was selected as the Outstanding Senior Male Athlete.
