For more than 241 years, Marines have fought and won our nation’s battles on air, land, and sea. Marines are committed to facing down any threat with the determination and fighting spirit to succeed.

Just as our Marines are prepared to face down and defeat any and all opposing forces before them, USMC Sports wants to showcase those student-athletes who have taken on a leadership role or have been met with a form of adversity and been able to overcome those challenges while exemplifying the Fighting Spirit that is displayed by the United States Marine Corps.
