Athletic Director Mike Hamrick speaks during Marshall University’s groundbreaking ceremony for its new baseball stadium in 2019 at the Chris Cline Athletic Complex in Huntington.

What I hope people remember the most about our tragedy is how we rebounded and were so resilient in the years that followed. It was devastating to lose so many who were part of the fabric of our community, university and athletics department. However, the people in and around this program pulled together to get Marshall football back on its feet. Without that, none of what has been accomplished in the years since would have been possible.
