Jupiter Christian QB Marshyl Rothman signs with Murray State 

By Jason Lieser

Marshyl Rothman, one of the area’s top quarterbacks over the past three seasons, said Monday he signed a letter of intent to play for Murray State.

Rothman committed to Cornell in December, but the school pulled its “offer” to admit him after changing coaches.

As a senior, Rothman (5-8, 170, No. 46 on The Big Board) threw for 1,740 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also rushed for 547 yards and 15 touchdowns.
