Marz Man was more than a former player…he was a great friend!

When you took a walk with “Johnny Marz” for just five
minutes through the streets of South Philly, you got a sense of just how many
lives he touched.

He repeatedly used to tell me that his father’s best
advice to him was: “It is nice to be important but it is more important to
be nice.” He lived every day that way and I will take it with me forever. My
heart goes out to his family.
