    I heard Marc is in the hospital with a brain injury. Sending prayers out for the Shaw family.

    If someone knows more again let’s us know.

    I received this from a close friend of Marc.

    “Marc is intubated and non-responsive. He has C2 fracture and fractures in his sacrum region as well as ankles and legs. Obviously the head trauma is the worst of it and it’s a wait and see thing as they deal with the swelling. All we can do now is hope and pray for the best.”

    I spent Thanksgiving with Marc and his family 30 years ago yesterday along with a few other guys from NLU/ULM. Unbelievably tragic, I always enjoyed seeing his father at tournaments throughout the years, RIP.

    Praying for Marc and his Mom

    So sorry to hear, Marc is one of the best Scorers I’ve ever met, his Big Dawg H2H program rocks and he was a fantastic help at Broho in 2015.

    Damn. No secret that I called Marc out last year, but no one wants this to happen to anyone. Man, I hope he improves.

    I will miss him, hanging out at events, working to organize events, skiing together and always having a good time. RIP Marc, we will miss you.

    Marc will surely be missed. Heartbreaking news. Condolences to family and friends. We lost another champion way too soon.

    To be honest, I feel like a dick this week. After the dustup with Brenda and Kyle last year and me calling them out and in turn, Marc, he reached out in a message or two here and even on LinkedIn. I just ignored him. Not because I didn't like him. I just disagreed with him. In hindsight, that was short sighted of me as he was just collateral damage in what they were doing. I always enjoyed being around him. This blows.

    Such sad news. I knew of Marc , but never had the opportunity to meet him. Sounds like I missed out. He and all of his family and friends are in my thoughts. Makes you think about life and how quickly tragedy can change everything. Knowing that his organs are saving other lives must make his soul feel good. He has given the gift of life to people that desperately needed it. There is something very special about that little red dot on your drivers license. Rest In peace my friend.
