MSU's Marqui Christian Accepts Harris Award

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAUZ) - Former Midwestern State football star Marqui Christian officially accepted his Cliff Harris Award Thursday night at the Little Rock Touchdown Club banquet!

He was presented the trophy given to the best small-college defensive player in the country, by the award's namesake, a former Dallas Cowboy who played at then-NAIA Ouachita Baptist University.

Thursday night, he made sure to thank his MSU coaches, who were in attendance, as well as his teammates whose on-field success he said helped him get noticed. He also thanked his parents, who he credited with helping him get to college and excel.
