He owns the school record for rushing touchdowns in a career (38) and in a single season (17) and was taken in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the 49ers.

No one will be able to relate to our players about dealing with success and facing diversity more than Marcus. After suffering multiple knee injuries in college, including a gruesome injury his junior year at SC that tore every ligament in his right knee and required surgery by specialist Dr. James Andrews, Baalke took a gamble on Lattimore in the fourth round. After one of the most decorated careers in SC high school football history, the Duncan, S.C., native burst onto the scene in 2010 when he rushed for 1,197 yards, leading the Gamecocks to their first SEC Eastern Division title and earning SEC Freshman of the Year accolades. But Lattimore never got back to full strength and didn't appear in a game for San Francisco before he retired from football at the age of 23.

In November, Lattimore was named the varsity football head coach for the Heathwood Hall Episcopal School in Columbia, South Carolina.

He is married to the former Miranda Bailey.
