Brandon Marshall wasted little time putting down roots in the South Florida community as he hosted a free youth football clinic on June 26, 2010, at the Dolphins' training facility. More than 350 children between ages 6 and 14 attended his non-contact clinic. “The thing for me is to give back the love that I’ve been getting,” Brandon said. “The past few years, it's been up and down for me. And to be received as much as I have in the community, it's important to build my structure in the community. I don’t want to be all over the place doing appearances. I want to be all over the place giving back.”
