Scott Porter: What do you feel are your greatest accomplishments?
Curtis Marsh: Man, this is tough to answer because me and my boys at Utah State worked so hard to get to a bowl game and just fell short.

Scott Porter: Who has been your biggest influence throughout your career?
Curtis Marsh: My position coach. His name is Corey Raymond. I never need motivation but he influenced me and helped me get the most of my ability. He taught me so much while I was here. How to break down film and everything it took to do well.
Scott Porter: What do you feel will be the toughest transition from the college level to the NFL level?
Curtis Marsh: To me the toughest transition will be the difference in the rules especially press coverage. You have that 5 yard barrier where as in college playing the slot you could have your hands on the WR longer but you won’t be able to do that in the NFL. You have to concentrate on keeping your hands off so that you aren’t getting flagged and hurting your team. It will just take some getting accustom to the new rules that a cornerback has to deal with.
Scott Porter: What are your hobbies off the field?
Curtis Marsh: Spending time with my family and friends. I am a huge LA Lakers basketball fan. I love watching the Lakers and the NBA in general. I like to go fishing when I can, but I don’t get the chance very often.
Scott Porter: Do you have any pre game rituals?
Curtis Marsh: Yes, I have a few. Before each game I talk to my mom in the hotel before we go to the stadium. She keeps me positive and focused. At Utah State coach always gave us a written test prior to our game of our upcoming opponent. They were graded, I would always study that test in the locker room before our game. I always say a prayer to myself before a game. My position coach, coach Corey Raymond always has us DB’s be the first on the field. We would always go out on the field before the special teams units to get ready for the game as a group.
