Bob Coleman will serve as the featured speaker at the annual turning on of the Memorial Fountain ceremony Saturday, April 17 at 12:30 p.m. The event will be held prior to the 3 p.m. spring football game.
The ceremony is held each spring to celebrate the rebirth of Marshall Football and to honor the Young Thundering Herd and players from the 1970s who helped rebuild the program following the November 14, 1970 Southern Airways Flight 932 crash.
Coleman, who played for Marshall as a cornerback and long snapper from 1974-77, served as a team captain as a senior. He is a graduate of Huntington East High School who came to the Thundering Herd’s program as a walk-on before ascending to his starting role.
Social distancing will be observed and masks will be required at the ceremony.
