Owen Marecic (pronounced /məˈriːsɨk/ mə-ree-sik; born October 4, 1988) is an American football player for the Cleveland Browns. He played at the collegiate level for Stanford University.


Early life

Marecic moved with his family around the United States following his father's career as an IT executive.[1] After New Jersey and Boston, where he played Pop Warner for the Westford/Littleton Lions, the Marecics moved to the Los Angeles area, where Owen played quarterback for a Pop Warner football team in Agoura Hills coached by former NFL player Clay Matthews.[2] One of his Pop Warner teammates was the coach's son, current Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Casey Matthews.[2] The Marecics moved to Tigard, Oregon when Owen was a sophomore in high school where he enrolled at Jesuit High School.[3] Marecic played fullback and linebacker for Jesuit, helping the team to Oregon state football titles his junior and senior years.[3]

College career

Marecic was recruited to Army, Yale, and Stanford, eventually opting to attend Stanford.[3] In his first three seasons with the Cardinal, Marecic was used almost exclusively as a fullback, blocking for Toby Gerhart and seldom touched the ball.[1] In his senior season of 2010, Marecic began starting both on offense (as a fullback) and defense (as a linebacker).[2] In the fourth game of the season against Notre Dame, Marecic scored a touchdown as a fullback, and then 13 seconds later, returned an interception for a touchdown, becoming the first player to score an offensive and defensive touchdown in the same game since Eric Weddle in 2006.[3][4][5]

On January 10, 2011, he was named the inaugural winner of the Paul Hornung Award as the most versatile player in college football.[6]
