BRISTOL - Former St. Paul football standout quarterback Logan Marchi has decided to transfer from Temple University. A sophomore, he saw his playing time reduced this season and eventually was benched in favor of Frank Nutile.

He finished his sophomore campaign with 1,658 passing yards and nine touchdowns to go with eight interceptions.

Marchi’s last action this season came against UConn, and he struggled on 54 passing attempts with 356 yards and a touchdown to go with an interception in the 28-24 loss.

The Owls went on to win four of their last six games without him starting and won their bowl game over Florida International 28-3.

In a statement posted by Marchi on Twitter he stated, “I want to thank my family first and foremost for the love and support they have always shown. I would like to thank Temple University for everything they have done for me during my time at this wonderful institution. I would like to thank my teammates, coaches, and all staff affiliated with Temple Football for all they have done.”

“I have decided I will be transferring from Temple University, I will be looking for a new home for the next two seasons and looking to enroll this spring. I wish nothing but the best for the future of my teammates, coaches, and the Temple Football program. Go Owls!”

Marchi got the Owls off to a 2-1 start and threw for five touchdowns with no interceptions in those games. He has yet to announce where he will be playing next fall.
