He is always the hardest working player on his team and in addition to dominating the glass he has a knack for getting steals and drawing charges. Ft. Wayne Mad Ants President Jeff Potter said the following about Marvin: "Averaging nearly a double-double, Marv had a career year for the Mad Ants. Marv was one of the best rebounders in the league, and I have seen few players with such a great nose for the ball. Couple his ability to find the ball with a solid mid range jump shot, and he will succeed in any league. He is a wonderful person, and it was a joy to have him wear a Mad Ants uniform."
