COMMERCE CITY — It wasn’t the best of weeks for Adams City running back Alex Marquez.
He spent much of homecoming week recovering from the flu. It was bad enough that he missed a large percentage of practice.
“It got it Monday (Sept. 8), and I skipped practices for two days,” he said. “My muscles were weak. I couldn’t show up.”
He didn’t need a lot of chicken soup remedies or fluids, apparently.
