"This event is a testament to all of our folks in Charleston and our Quarterback Club of Charleston committee," said John Sutherland, Executive Director of the Big Green Scholarship Foundation. "Football season is officially here when it is time for Paint the Capital. And we are thrilled to have Friends of Coal be a part of this event again. Chris Hamilton and the rest of that organization have become like family to us at Marshall, and we truly appreciate all they do."

"The support we receive from people in the city of Charleston is phenomenal," said Hamrick. "And we need everyone's support. Last year was the best year we have ever had with Marshall Athletics across all of our programs, and I am excited about our future and what the 2016-2017 year holds."
