Marcus Randall played quarterback for LSU, the Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.
Randall came to LSU from nearby Glen Oaks High School in Baton Rouge. His brother, Eric Randall, had been a well-known quarterback in the area, leading Southern University to a Black College National Championship in 1995. In 2002, Randall became the starting quarterback halfway through the season, after starter Matt Mauck was lost for the year with a broken foot. In 2003, he saw limited action behind Mauck during LSU's run to a BCS National Championship. In 2004, he started the majority of LSU's games, but split time with redshirt freshman, JaMarcus Russell. During his career at LSU, Randall would throw for 2,845 yards, 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also threw the game-winning touchdown against Kentucky in 2002, now known as the "Bluegrass Miracle".
Randall was not selected in the 2005 NFL Draft. However, he did sign as an undrafted free agent with the Titans, who converted him first to safety and later linebacker.
Randall was selected in inaugural AAFL draft by Arkansas to play quarterback.
Randall is currently Dean of Students at Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge.
