Marcus Fowler

marcusfowlerThe Erie Express are happy to announce the return of All-Pro OL- Marcus Fowler (Gannon University) for the 2016 season. Marcus begins his second with the Express and returns as one of our starters on the offensive line.

Last season Marcus played a major role in our playoff run, a run in which we experienced for the second year in a row a 10 win season and re wrote the offensive record book along the way. Fowler helped pave the way for PAFL leading rusher Allen Jones on his way to a 1500 yard season total. For his efforts Marcus was awarded with PAFL All-Pro status and played in the PAFL All-Star game.

Marcus is a graduate of Newton Falls, HS where he was a standout player on the football field as well as basketball court. As a senior Fowler earned All-American Conference honors, All County, All Northeast Ohio as well as All State. Marcus played his college football at Gannon University and one season of basketball at Thiel College. Fowler has played professionally for the Erie Explosion of the PIFL.

In addition to his abilities on the gridiron Marcus is an accomplished MMA fighter/kick boxer.

“Marcus did a great job for us last year and has been preparing very hard for this season. We are confident in what he can do week in and week out. He is coachable and has tremendous footwork for a guy his size. Based on what we have seen so far in our pre season conditioning sessions we feel confident that this will be a breakout year for Marcus as well as the Express”-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
