A graduate of Hilliard Davidson High School, Marzano was a four-year starter and two-year captain at Wheeling Jesuit University.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to come to Wilmington,” Marzano said. “Fundamentals will be a priority. Everybody will be coming from different sorts of programs, so we will be focused on establishing our own way of doing things, our own fundamentals. We will be starting a new tradition at Wilmington with those fundamentals. We want teams to say that we play tough and we play clean.”
