For Doug Marsh, the change from

peting in the NFL, to Marsh, is the in-
tensity of the respective training cam-
"The Cardinals' training camp was

Michigan's," he said. "We went six
weeks and had two practices a day in
comparison to only two weeks in
college. Even though it was harder, it
was good because it really got me ready
for the upcoming season.'

caught nine passes for 120 yards and two
touchdowns. He had never doubted that
he would be able to step right in and see
action in the NFL.
"I knew if I showed my ability to the
coaches to learn the Cardinals' system,
I would get to play," he explained.

being drafted as early as the second
round, either.
t"LI knew I would go early in the draft,
eause a lot of teams around the
league needed tight ends." And Marsh
had the numbers to draw attention
from the pro scouts. During his three
years in Michigan's run-oriented offen-
se, .Marsh chalked up 57 receptions for
947 yards. In an outstanding senior
season, Marsh had 33 receptions for
612 yards and six touchdowns. He was

named first-team All-Big Ten and
third-team "All-American and was
chosen to play in the Hula Bowl in
Hawaii last January.
