Evan Marshall is a male helmeted woodpecker forward, currently playing for the Queens Pride.
Evan Marshall was ranked #19 in the 2013 Draft Candidate Combine.
Born to a single mother in Bismarck, North Dakota, Evan Marshall began life on shaky footing. Too busy working long hours, Evan was often looked after by an elderly neighbor in the apartment complex. Though kind and well-meaning, she had difficulty caring for herself let alone a small child, so Evan was often left alone to his own devices. While this could have been the beginning of a down turn in life, like many youths face after being neglected during these crucial points of development, it became a time of great exploration.
Essentially raised by television that harkened to the entertainment styles of the Marxs Brothers, Fred Astaire, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and the Nicholas Brothers, Evan grew to enjoy the pomp and energy of theatrics. And as a child with a lot of energy to spare and a complete lack of shyness, performing became a natural fit. It began naturally as a talent for acting, hamming it up in the simplest of elementary school plays and progressed to all facets in his life. Evan lived for attention and allowing his personality to be free. But amidst the theater troupes and improve nights and talent show magic tricks, Evan found an even greater fit for all his energy, athleticism and showmanship. In basketball.
What started out as a summer youth activity at his church quickly snowballed into great potential. The prince of pratfalls, for all his joking and funny voices and care-free shenanigans, proved to have remarkable skill on court even at a young age. Tough to manage and coach as a distracted child, Evan soon grew into a well maintained player heading into high school. His quick almost acrobatic moves and sleight of hand coupled with superb ball control made him difficult to defend. True to his roots as an improvisational performer, Evan responds well to pressure, being an excellent clutch player and delights playing to "tough crowds". An exciting player to watch, it is never a dull moment when Evan is on the floor, and it was said that game attendance shot up when Evan became a starter on his college team. In part because of his unpredictable antics when the clock wasn't rolling, be it dancing with the halftime entertainment or singing off key to a fan.
Off court, Evan is said to be constantly in a mode indicative to the stage. Always light-hearted, and tough to take serious, Evan will find any opportunity to get a laugh. Hearkening to the comedy of a different era, Evan relishes in being the butt of jokes, his own gags and bits intended to delight but never hurt or harm. Getting attention and a reaction is his daily goal, making him both beloved as a genuinely good-natured fun person, and disliked by those who find his constant stage presence insufferable. Socially, it has made him a bit of an enigma, as little is known or shared about this extreme extrovert's deep personal life. Being constantly "on" has created, perhaps intentionally, a wall that yields countless friends, but very few who know "the REAL Evan Marshall".
