THIS IS EPISODE 308 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Marcel Reece played 10 years in the NFL from 2008-2017 with the Dolphins, Raiders and Seahawks. After going undrafted in 2008 out of the University of Washington, he spent two years on the practice squad with the Raiders before getting his shot. And he made the most of his opportunity, going on to be selected for four Pro Bowls in his nine seasons with Oakland.
After spending 2016 with the Seahawks, Reece was re-signed by Seattle in July 2017. But following the preseason, he was a final cut and released on Sept. 2, 2017.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Reece about growing up in Inglewood, Calif., as a Celtics fan, making it to the NFL after being undrafted, and the influence his grandmother and mother had on his journey to Jesus.

Words could never describe the feeling of LOVE and appreciation the NATION gave me and my family this past weekend. Thank you Mark and Carol Davis for allowing me to honor AL by lighting his torch. The greatest part was having the 3 people that fill my heart and make me whole standing in FRONT of me for the ride. It would mean nothing without my beautiful wife and the humans we were blessed with. Jesus has SAVED and BLESSED me with more than I could have ever dreamed of as a kid from Inglewood, California…I could never boast to my accomplishments, I can only hope in GOD with confidence…45🏁
