Marion Justice

I was sad to learn that Marion Justice, one of the finest quarterbacks in the history of Charlotte high school football recently passed away.

Unfortunately, (for us) he led the Harding High Rams in 1953 to victory over their arch rivals....US!


I never knew Marion very well, but the few times I met him I was impressed.  He sure was impressive on the football field!

Rest in peace, Marion.
