Greene, Strand, Fer­rag­amo head­line All-Bay­side lists

Record Observer - - Sports -

Kent County High foot­ball stand­out Mar­c­quan Greene left the Bay­side Con­fer­ence much the same way as he en­tered it: his name on al­most ev­ery­one’s lips.

A 5-foot-9, 175-pound speed­ster who played four of­fen­sive po­si­tions over four years — and “prob­a­bly would’ve done fine as a line­man, too,” ac­cord­ing to Tro­jan head coach, Bren­don Ire­ton — Greene be­gan as a run­ning back, played slot and re­ceiver for much of the last two sea­sons, then was in­serted at quar­ter­back this Oc­to­ber af­ter an in­jury to starter Tyson John­son.

The senior passed for 609 yards and five touch­downs this fall, rushed for 1,461 yards and 23 touch­downs, and com­piled more than 300 other all-pur­pose yards. He leaves with the con­fer­ence’s all-time record for touch­downs with 84

Greene had the biggest rush­ing game of his ca­reer in the Class 1A East Re­gion cham­pi­onship game Nov. 18, car­ry­ing 34 times for 312 yards and three touch­downs in a 28-22 vic­tory over Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester that ended Kent’s 25-game los­ing skid against the Vik­ings which dated back to the 1995 state play­offs.

Lead­ing Kent County to its first state tour­na­ment in 20 years while com­pil­ing those num­bers earned Greene se­lec­tion as the Bay­side Of­fen­sive Player of the Year by the con­fer­ence’s coaches.

“He’s just an in­cred­i­ble tal­ent,” Ire­ton said. “There were games where it seemed like there was noth­ing Mar­c­quan couldn’t do.”

Greene also played de­fen­sive back al­most
