One of the first shoots we did with Brandon Marshall was a trip to Pittsburgh, PA where he grew up. He hosted a youth football camp that weekend. I got a real sense for who Marshall was on this trip. In addition to the football camp he took us to his childhood home, his grandmother’s home, a block party in his old neighborhood. Brandon Marshall: A Football Life premieres TONIGHT Friday Sept. 19 @ 9:00PM/ET only on NFL Network.
Marshall said that he hosts youth camps in Chicago and South Florida also, but the one in Pittsburgh is the one that really brings him back to his childhood. On the muddy Natoli Field, Marshall had a smile on his face all morning. He was in his element.
