    The Marske family of Andover has received great recognition from the SD sports fans, but there is one of the Marskes that has been missed. Harry Marske, a standout center for the Andover Gorillas and later the Northern State Teacher’s College Wolves, earned All-American honors while in college. He was a dominating force in high school and is deserving of recognition akin to his brother Bob Marske and his sister Ruth. I hope a case can be made for Harry to receive the recognition he deserves.
