Marquise Baldwin just finished his senior year as Chowan University’s season leader in solo, assisted, and total tackles. This feat has actually been the best performance over the past two seasons.
Baldwin accumulated 65 tackles, 6 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, 1 interception, 2 hits on the Quarterback, and 1 fumble recovery for the Hawks. “I think I played great last year and I feel like a lot of teams game planned around me” said Baldwin. He finished his career with 121 total tackles being a full time starter the last two seasons.
Being a team leader was not a coincidence, he is a smart and relentless football player who does his job in order to make the plays that come his way. His main strengths inside the sidelines are his speed, strength, tackling, and coverage skills. He is a versatile Linebacker who can use his athletic ability to do whatever the coaches needed him to do anywhere on the field, as you can see in his film.
The 6’1″ Linebacker knows he can succeed at the next level, by showing all his strengths, showing no weakness, and going 1-0 each play. However, no matter the accomplishments, in order to get noticed from a smaller program, Baldwin needs to show off his skills against the top players in the nation. Luckily, the stage is set to do so, as he was honored with an invite to a senior All-Star game, the HBCU Spirit of America Bowl in Salem, VA on January 20th. This will give him the shot to shine in front of scouts at the highest level.
