Mariota “magic” returning to Oregon roster in 2015
fans beside themselves with the loss of Marcus Mariota as an early NFL entry
might have found a way to console their pain with the announcement of Matthew
Mariota joining the team in 2015.
Matthew Mariota is the younger brother of the Ducks’
all-time great quarterback. Matthew, 6’3”, 230 pounds, is an outside linebacker
at St. Louis High
School in Honolulu,
the same proving grounds Marcus tore up before becoming a college football
legacy will reportedly join the team as a preferred walk-on.
