Randy Snyder/The Herald-Dispatch Actor Arlen Escarpeta, right, listens as former Marshall quarterback Reggie Oliver speaks about the Young Thundering Herd on Saturday, June 10, 2006, during the filming of "We Are Marshall" at Herndon Stadium at Morris Brown College in Atlanta. The movie depicts the fight to maintain Marshall's football program following the 1970 plane crash that claimed 75 lives including Marshall football players, coaches, community members and flight crew. Escarpeta portrays Oliver in the movie.
