LEWISBURG, Pa. -- David Marble '10, one of the all-time great Bison wrestlers, is returning to Bucknell to serve as manager for athletics development and the Bison Club. In his new role, Marble will partner with volunteers, coaches, University and Athletics administrators and Development and Alumni Relations staff to solicit support for Bison Athletics.
"We are very excited to welcome Dave back to Bucknell as a member of the Bison Club team," said senior associate athletic director and director of the Bison Club Todd Newcomb. "As both a former student-athlete and a member of the coaching staff here, he has been immersed in the Bison Athletics culture and he will be a true asset to our fundraising team."
During his days as a 133-pound wrestler at Bucknell, Marble was a four-time NCAA qualifier and EIWA Championships placewinner. He finished his career with a 111-44 record, placing him third on the program's all-time wins list at the time. As a senior captain he went 30-10, and Marble finished his Bison career with a 61-17 record in dual matches, including 22-5 in EIWA duals. Honored with the team's Class of 2010 Leadership Award following the 2009-10 campaign, Marble received the Edward W. Pangburn Award at Bucknell's annual Senior Awards Dinner. The award is given for "sportsmanship, fellowship and contribution to the University".
After graduating with a degree in psychology, Marble remained at Bucknell for three seasons as an assistant coach under Dan Wirnsberger. He then spent four years working as a marketing representative with Federated Mutual Insurance Company in Alexandria, Virginia, while serving as a volunteer assistant coach at George Mason University.
Last March, Marble moved on to Salesforce.com, where he served as a business development representative for the public sector of the fourth-largest software company in the world.
Since May 2016, Marble has also been the treasurer of the Buffalo Valley Regional Training Center, a non-profit wrestling training facility in Lewisburg.
