Wagoner’s Corbin Marsey – Presented by Kevin Grover Buick-GMC

Wagoner High School senior point guard Corbin Marsey has a lot on his shoulders this basketball season as he gets ready for his final go-round as a Bulldog. Not only is he the lone returning starter but he’s also the senior leader for a young squad. “I think a good leader has to be positive and be a good communicator and not just yelling at the younger guys and making things negative. A good leader also has to have a strong work ethic to show the new kids what it takes to be successful.” 

During his four years at Wagoner, Marsey has attained recognition as the team MVP last year, making all-conference and being recognized by two area newspapers for his play. But this year Marsey would like to see if he can propel the Bulldogs deeper into the playoffs while reaching for some personal goals of averaging 20 points per game, reaching the 1000-point career mark, and possibly making All-State. His coach Dante Swanson, himself an accomplished player at the University of Tulsa and in professional ball overseas, says Corbin has the tools to achieve those goals. 

“Corbin is a well developed player having played since he was in the first grade and playing summer ball with the Tulsa Hawks AAU team. He was our top scorer and rebounder last year and is an outstanding leader and hard worker.” And Corbin says that his coach has also served as his role model since he’s been in high school because of his accomplishments. Though the team itself has not had a real breakthrough moment since he’s been there, Marsey says he does fondly remember one game from his younger days. 

“My sophomore year we were playing Stilwell and we played a horrible first half and were down by like 20 points in the second half but we came back to win the game at the buzzer. I played good defense and had a couple of steals late in the game so that was exciting.” Corbin says that even though the Bulldogs will be young they might fly under the radar. “Because we have a lot of freshmen, I think people will underestimate us this year but a lot of those guys got experience last year and I think we’ll be better.” Marsey says he hopes to play college ball somewhere next year.
