Marlette Keeps Family Tradition Going at WHS

Bookmark and Share

Tradition means a lot to Dan Marlette.

"As a Warrior we take our football seriously.  We take pride in how we act on the field and how well we play.  And, you know, the dynasty is our pride."  Marlette says.

Especially when the Warrior way is also the family business.  

His brother Tim starred at Washington, beginning the school's current run of five straight state championship appearances in 2007.

"You know he's actually more supportive than trying to talk crap or anything like that.  So it's actually pretty awesome that he stands behind me and supports me in everything I do."  Dan says.

After playing a supporting role, it's Dan's turn to be the leader....

"I think he's going to be a solid player and, you know, he's doing a great job.  We kind of hold that standard to all the seniors.  Obviously some are a little more vocal than others.  Some do it with how they practice and prepare."  Washington Head Coach Chad Stadem says.

"I just want to be that player that people think just go hard every single play.  Doesn't take a play off."  Marlette says.

And get both of his families down to the Dakota Dome one more time.

"It actually started with my brother and that would be awesome to finish it."  Dan says.

It's a Marlette tradition after all.
