Marcus Forston Football Cards

It's All About Collecting The U!

With over 525 player alumni and staff from the University of Miami Football program represented, I believe my Hurricanes card collection is the most expansive in existence. It includes players that have been inducted into Hall of Fames through practice squad members and those that merely committed and walked away before the season began. Also represented are head coaches, assistants, and other staff members of the program. Along with traditional football cards, I also count similar flat collectables like pocket schedules and ticket stubs.

The Card Album is my personal collection showcase. I originally designed my first website,, from scratch in Microsoft FrontPage and used tables to organize things. The site was updated regularly 2009 to 2021. I’m proud to say that I had regular viewers from around the world, and my content was frequently in the top results on Google’s web and image results. The time came to put some new tools and ideas to use, and so was born.

About Marcus Forston

Marcus Forston (born September 28, 1989) is an American football defensive tackle who is currently a free agent. Forston was signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He played college football for the University of Miami.

Forston played as a true freshman (2008) and was instrumental to the Miami Hurricanes’ defensive rotation. During his freshman season, Forston recorded 17 tackles with 4.5 tackles for loss, and 3 quarterback sacks. Forston was given the nickname “Big Boom” by his teammates.[7] Forston subsequently earned multiple All-Freshman honors and was named to FWAA′s Freshman All-America team,[8] College Football News′ All-Freshman first team,[9] and′s 2008 Freshman All-America team.[10] His sophomore season (2009) was derailed by an ankle injury that kept Forston out for the season.[11] Forston was thereby granted a medical redshirt for the 2009 season.

Forston came back strong during the 2010 season registering 37 total tackles (16 solo and 21 assisted), 12 tackles for loss, 3 quarterback sacks, 1 interception and 2 passes defended. Forston’s final season was cut short because of a season-ending knee injury against Bethune-Cookman. Forston subsequently decided to forgo his final season of eligibility and entered the NFL Draft.
