Donnell Marshall

Centerburg senior Donnell Marshall scores from 10 yards out in the second quarter of Friday's win over East Knox.

CENTERBURG – Good, but not good enough. That’s how outsiders thought of Donnell Marshall’s class until Friday night.

Sure, Centerburg’s seniors had shown improvement over the years – after going 2-8 their freshman season, the Trojans finished 7-3 last fall – but they’d never won the big one. They’d never defeated a team that finished the season with a winning record (0-13). They’d never knocked off a KMAC giant, such as Northmor or East Knox. They’d never gotten over the proverbial hump.
