From The Bellingham Herald:

_Football is [Marquis Cooper’s] occupation, but fishing is his love. . . .

“I used to go freshwater,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle _last season, “but now I’m salt and that’s it. Don’t show me no lake, river or nothing.”

“It’s a drug. You get hooked. You need it, like you want a new pole or you want new reels. I just go out there and get it done.”
