It was a day when "red" and green mixed nicely. The actor portraying former Marshall assistant coach Red Dawson became a full fledged member of the Marshall football fan club.
Marshall's Keith Spears presented the actor with a Marshall football jersey—the number 1--with his name on the back. Fox said he's learned a lot about the herd since he's been in Huntington.
"I didn't really know much about Marshall," Fox said. "Chad Pennington, I think," he said with a laugh. "So much of what I really enjoy about being an actor based on actual history, is learning."
Part of that learning process has been spending a lot of time with the real Red Dawson. Fox said he's really enjoyed their camaraderie together and getting to know the "Marshall story."
