Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota lured in more than 3,400 people to the Titans training camp on August 1st which is one of the biggest crowds yet to date to show up. The Hawaiian native took the time for almost an hour to stand and talk to fans and autograph as many items as he could before he had to leave. One dedicated fan even brought Mariota a flowered lei which he wore all the way until he went into the locker rooms after leaving behind the excited attendees. Mariota was very kind to everyone who came out, and even though he was unable to reach and talk to every person at the sidelines he did his best to interact with especially all the kids he could see.
The 2014 Heisman Trophy winner was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii where he was noticed as a standout quarterback during his high school years, and eventually earned him a scholarship to play for the University of Oregon. The former duck won several awards during his college years in addition to the Heisman including the Maxwell Award, Davey O’Brien Award, Manning Award, and the 2014 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. He is expected to shine brightly during his first year in the NFL and do a lot of great things for the Titans, so it will be a lot of fun to see how his talent transitions into the professional world.
Mariota got a lot of attention this year at the Tennessee Titans’ training camp in Nashville, and up to 3,400 people came out to see him prepare for his first professional season in the NFL. He spent about an hour interacting with fans and signing autographs, and even though he couldn’t get to everyone it was clear that he was grateful for people showing up.
