Milwaukee: There is nothing more satisfying for a defensive player than shutting out the opposition's offense. That is exactly what Milwaukee (Wis.) Marquette did to Brookfield Central last weekend, and linebacker Marcus Trotter led the charge in a 35-0 win.
"This is a big rivalry game," Trotter said. "It was a great atmosphere, we just came out and did our best, and you can't ask for anything more than that. We worked really hard in the off-season and during the season in every practice to be as good as we were on the field today."
Part of that "we" is his twin-brother Michael, who like Marcus, flew around the field all night and played the game at a very fast pace .

"We just like hustling," Marcus said. "Every play and every down. Everyone gets winded, but you have to suck it up. We just approach it like every play is an is an important play. If you miss an assignment, it could be six points. We like hustling and getting things done.
Marcus has a scholarship offer from Indiana. He is hearing from some other FBS programs as well.
"I am talking to Colorado and Vanderbilt," Marcus said. "Colorado State called for me as well. They all want a three to five game highlight tape. I have sent 30 to 35 tapes out. I guess those schools will make decisions off of that."
Marcus visited Vanderbilt unofficially for the Ole Miss game. His brother Michael, a Wisconsin commitment, made the trip as well.
"I loved Vanderbilt. Michael came too because he is my brother. He just wants to see everything. It is a great school. It is a bit small, but it has great academics, and it is down south. We are not used to the warm weather, we are stuck in the cold up here. But it is great football at Vanderbilt and in the SEC, and a great education. You can't do better than that. I loved it."
Indiana offered Marcus last summer.
"Of course, Indiana is still up top," Marcus said. "I told them I am going to take it slow. Michael committed to Wisconsin because he had that feeling, and I want to find that feeling. Indiana is being very patient with me and I am glad for that. Whenever I have that feeling I am going to commit."
