More on Marques Harris

Marques Harris was a solid contributor for the Chargers in his rookie season. One of only two undrafted free agents to earn a spot on the opening day 53-man roster, Harris earned his way onto the playing field in 11 of the team’s 16 games as a reserve linebacker and special teams performer.
Having spent most of his childhood in Colorado, Marques participates in a wide range of outdoor activities.  Among his favorites are snow- boarding, backpacking, camping, fishing and playing golf.
When Marques began his collegiate career at the University of Colorado, he became a second generation Buffalo.  His dad, Alvin Phillips, played linebacker for the Buffaloes from 1972-76 and his uncle, Chuck Wiman, also played for the Buffaloes in the 70s.
Marques regularly volunteers for community events in San Diego.  He got an early start in community service including food drives, volunteering at the hospital. Marques founded two nonprofit organizations while he was still in college.  In October 2002, he founded Harris’ Kids inc., an organization to help underprivileged kids who need mentoring, and he later founded a similar organization called Baseline, Inc.
