He continued to play and teach professionally until 1987.
His family continued to grow and Marcus decided once again to return home to his roots in Manufacturing.

Marcus never considered getting involved politically until recently because of the rampant corruption of politicians at all levels and the socialist/globalist take- over of the Federal government. With the non-representation of the American people, the blatant lying of government officials, and the tyrannical global socialist agenda being forced on the American people, it was time to act. Marcus actively participated in many Tea Parties and confronted many politicians in Pennsylvania only to see our activism ignored.
Being a Registered Republican and watching the dismal performance and lack of commitment to social and fiscal Conservatism, Marcus has decided to leave political parties that don’t truly represent the American people and join the Conservative movement across America in the hopes of regaining our Heritage and Pride.
