HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Years ago, before his championship-winning high school football career at Saint Louis had even begun, Marcus Mariota was not unlike the kids who lined up along Kalakaua Avenue on Friday for a chance at an autograph from their favorite player.
"Growing up I went to the NFL Experience at Kapiolani park," said Mariota. "We waited probably an hour or two for Jerry Rice. My dad has been a die-hard San Francisco fan, and I got Jerry Rice's autograph on an Oakland Raiders helmet. And he was, like, totally mad for weeks about it."
