Marlette & Quintanilla Talk Signing Day

February 5, 2014, 10:48 PM by Cat Clark

Marlette & Quintanilla Talk Signing Day
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

High school students all across the country woke up this morning and picked out their favorite pens to sign their national letter of intent.

South Dakota's top two prospects, Dan Marlette and Caden Quintanilla, woke up and signed the next four years of lives away. Marlette will join powerhouse NDSU, while Quintanilla will go up the road to Augie.

"It was exciting; I actually woke up and was excited for the day. It's time to get some stress off my back and be officially committed to North Dakota St. University," Washington Senior Dan Marlette said.

"I was really excited; I have been waiting for this for as long as I have been playing football. It's great to know that I'm finally settling in for college and getting ready to go," Lincoln Senior Caden Quintanilla said.

Quintanilla comes from the first ever 11AAA champion Patriots and is excited to come in as a running back in coach Olszewski's second season at Augie. As for Marlette he will play linebacker for a Bison squad that is coming off its third straight national title, but with a new coach at the helm now.

"One thing that he told me coming into this was that I was going to have the same head coach, as opposed to how Bohl left. He has the new job and he knows he is going to be around for awhile. That is comforting," Marlette said.

"When I first talked to coach Olszewski I thought he was a great guy, he was amazing. No other guy has ever made me want to put on pads and make me want to lay out for the guy more than him. He is a great person and he makes me want to be like him," Quintanilla said.

These two were the man on their respective high school teams as seniors. Now freshman at major universities they have different goals.

"I will be red-shirting, so I will be trying to gain some weight, get stronger, and hopefully be physically and mentally ready to play," Quintanilla said.

"I want to pass all my classes actually. I want to be a good student. If I get a chance to play, I want to do what I can, if not I will red-shirt and prepare for the next season," Marlette said.

Quintanilla verbally committed to SDSU before changing at the last minute due to his major and feelings for Augie. USD wanted Marlette, but he didn't want to be known as Tim's little brother down there. He wanted to make his own name somewhere else. The spring sport athletes will sign their letters on April 16th.
