Defensive Back / Kick Returner | Letters 1973-75

Defense and special teams. Neither tends to make headlines or generate thousand word trietsies on the nature of Football, but for decades its how you won games. For the Bearcats of the the mid seventies the truth of that sentiment was universal. Tony Mason was a coach who lived to play a punishing brand of Football, and for quite a while in the 70's the best club in his bag was Tom Marvaso a defensive stalwart and special teams standout from Washington DC.

Marvaso started from the day he became eligible to play as a Sophomore. He was part of a record breaking crew, a defense that was among the best at stopping the run. Marvaso was a good safety but he was a dominating special teams player. He is one of only four Bearcats to return multiple punts for a TD and he racked up 575 punt return yards. Marvaso was named first team All America by the Sporting News after his senior season as a punt returner
