Team Member Information
Marvase Byrd is a defensive back for the Akron Zips football team. A redshirted freshman, Marvase did not play during the 2008 season and saw little game time in 2009 with no recorded action. However, Marvase Byrd’s size and agility will be a huge benefit to the defensive side in 2010 if he is able to find playing time. Fans can not wait for the Akron Zips-Kent State match up because interestingly Marvase Byrd’s brother Leon Green signed with rival Kent State on a football scholarship, taking sibling rivalry to a whole new level.
Before he arrived at the University of Akron, Marvase Byrd was quite the high school football player. He was named second-team All-State, was an alternate to play in the Big 33 all-star game (Pennsylvania vs. Ohio), and was rated among the top 50 prospects in Pennsylvania by Rivals.com and Scout.com. In his senior season he ran for 1,005 yards and scored 11 touchdowns.
Akron Zips fans are getting excited to see Marvase Byrd and the rest of the Akron Zips have a great schedule. Everyone, but especially Marvase Byrd are really hoping for a win against Kent State seeing as how the ultimate bragging rights are at stake.
