Army vet ready to take on football, elementary students


This story originally appeared in the Spring 2014 edition of Marietta, The Magazine of Marietta College.

Standing alone on the field at Don Drumm Stadium, Jarred “Sarge” Malcolm ’17 (Freeport, Pa.) slips on a Marietta College football jersey for the first time. It’s not game day yet, but he feels a sense of pride that’s hard even for Jarred to explain.

Jarred’s path to this day is nothing like the rest of the Marietta football players who are 18 to 23 years old. A 26-year-old Army veteran, Jarred arrived at Marietta in January on the GI Bill ready to fulfill his dream of playing college football.
