BCLions.com Staff

The BC Lions Football Club announced this afternoon that import defensive back Dante Marsh has signed a contract extension with the team.


Marsh enters his 11th season with the Leos and comes off a 2013 campaign that earned him West Division All-Star status for the fourth time in his career.

“Dante continues to play at an all-star level and is one of the cornerstones to our defence,” said VP of football operations and GM Wally Buono. “His extension is another piece in building a championship team in 2014.”

Appearing in all 18 games last season for the seventh time in his outstanding career, Marsh recorded 73 tackles and three interceptions last year. The four-time West Division All-Star and two-time Grey Cup champion is the club’s all-time leader in total tackles with 579 over 169 regular season games.

“You would be hard-pressed to find a player that works harder than Dante Marsh,” said head coach Mike Benevides. “He’s a big part of our defense and an even bigger part of our core leadership group.”
