Abstract/Description: The player thumbnail of Marlin Briscoe from the 1967 OU football media guide reads as follows, "Omaha's top Little All-America candidate. He's already made the CIC All-Star team in '64 and *65 before missing last season with a neck injury suffered just before the first game. The little scrambler holds ten Omaha offensive records and was NAIA's 3rd leading passer and 4th in total offense in 1965. His 2,181 yards in total offense was record. There is very little he can't do and pro scouts are sizing him up as a possible defensive back. He returned interception 80 yards for score against Eastern New Mexico in '65. Is going into third season as Omaha starting quarterback. Secondary education major. Was All-City and Shrine Bowl selection as a halfback-quarterback in 1962 at Omaha South. A fine prep cage star, he was named the MVP in the 1962 Omaha Prep Summer Classic basketball game. Lettered in basketball at Omaha in 1963." Briscoe is pictured on the left.
