According to the documents filed, Marshall owes Wachovia 2.8 million dollars and Augusta First Bank and Trust another 2.3 million dollars. The filing also shows he owes more than $36,000 in taxes in five counties. In Columbia County, his debts total almost $25,000 and in Richmond County it's more than $10,000.

And there is hundreds of thousands owed to other local business from plumbing, to paint, to concrete.

Marshall was a football star at Hephzibah High School. He went to the University of Georgia and played with the Denver Broncos and New York Giants in the NFL in the 1990's. He also coached Augusta's indoor football team Augusta Heat back in 1999.
