Rand Marquess
CLASS of 1969 Football, Baseball and Basketball ATHLETE
Rand spearheaded the Panthers' rise to state football supremacy as both a hard-running tailback and hard-hitting linebacker. As a two year starter, he led the team in both rushing and tackling while earning "All-Big 8" recognition as well as "honorable mention Prep All-American" by Coach and Athlete magazine. Rand served as a team captain and earned several team awards because of his outstanding ability and attitude.

As a two year starter, the WHS baseball team benefitted from his talents behind the plate and as a leading slugger. He was also a member of the varsity basketball team as a junior. Rand capped an exceptional prep athletic career by receiving the "Panther Best" award.

At the University of Idaho, he was a three year starting linebacker, set school tackling records and earned "first team All-Big Sky" berths his junior and senior seasons as well as "honorable mention All-Big Sky" as a sophomore. Rand played for the Edmonton Eskimos in the Canadian Football League until injuries prematurely curtailed his pro career.
