Marcus continues the fine tradition of outstanding scholar athletes honored by the Ed Romance Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.

He is a three-year letterman in football where he was an outstanding fullback and linebacker for the Tornadoes. He also lettered two years for the Tornado Baseball Team and was named the team’s most improved player last year.

Marcus scored 1290 out of 1600 on the College Boards; and his 730 out of 800 in the Mathematics portion of the Scholastic Achievement test put him solidly among the Nation’s elite in that category.

His grade point average at Mount Carmel high School is a perfect 4.0 never having gotten anything but an “A” in any subject. His total cumulative average is 97.31.

He has accomplished this while taking the most difficult Science and Mathematics Course the school offers; including Advanced Placement (College Level) Calculus and Biology.

Marcus has accepted an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis and will report there on July 3, 1990. He follows his brother, Ron, to the Naval Academy. Ron is a 1988 graduate of the Academy.

Marcus is the son of Elizabeth and Ronald Startzel of Strong, Pennsylvania. The Hall of Fame is proud to include Marcus on it’s list of Blue Ribbon Scholars.
