HUNTINGTON -- Abbie Tolbert from Cabell Midland High School and Summer Collins from Chapmanville High School are part of the Marshall University softball recruiting class announced by head coach Shonda Stanton.
While Western Kentucky's Brandon Doughty is statistically one of the country's top passers in yards, Marshall's Rakeem Cato is the likely frontrunner for C-USA Most Valuable Player based off his ability to read the opposition and get his team into the right set. Cato is the elite in the conference, engineering one of the nation's most balanced offenses. Doughty isn't far behind, though.
Who can name a quarterback who has hurt Marshall with his passing this season?
HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University's Doc Holliday remembers the early Senior Days during his time as the Thundering Herd football head coach.

Forget the fact that it is the top two scoring offenses in Conference USA. Those units don't go head-to-head against each other. Instead, focus in on the most fun matchup to see: Marshall's top-ranked defense against Western Kentucky's high-powered offense. To put it in perspective, Western Kentucky is throwing for more yards (351.3 yards per game) than Marshall is allowing total (324.4 yards per game).
