Few players have emerged as leaders – both on the field and in the community – as quickly and unexpectedly as Marc did in 2002. Thrust into the starting lineup having never taken an NFL regular season snap, Marc led the Rams to victories in his first six starts that season and never looked back. Since then, the Pittsburgh native has completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 16,233 yards and 95 touchdowns while leading the Rams to two playoff berths and the 2003 NFC West Division title. Seemingly unstoppable inside the Edward Jones Dome, Marc has also impressed St. Louisans by sharing his talents with the community. He has taken part in numerous Rams charity initiatives, including Hometown Huddle, Bowl-a-RAM-a, Football University, and Get Into the Game. Local chapters of the United Way, the Epilepsy Foundation, and ALIVE (Alternatives to Living in Violent Environments) have all benefited from Marc’s efforts, along with thousands of kids throughout St. Louis. In 2006, Marc served as the honorary host for the 11th annual Make-A-Wish Celebrity Dinner. The event raised more than $100,000 for the St. Louis chapter of the Make-A-Wish
Foundation. Marc also gives back to his hometown, annually hosting the Marc Bulger Celebrity Golf Invitational to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. The 2007 event raised more than $157,000.
