He tenaciously works on his shooting to the tune of 700+ shots a day making him a 3-point threat with ball-handling and passing ability. In addition, he has worked hard over the years to become a tenacious defender.
At the completion of his Junior year, he had a breakout 2012-13 high school season by being named to the "All-Tournament" team at the McClintock Holiday tournament and ranked by MaxPreps.com as Arizona's Division I Boys High School #1 3-point Leader with 97 completed 3's for the season with a 39% 3-FG %.

For the 2013-14 season , he once again led the state of Arizona's Division I boys basketball as the Maxpreps.com 3-point leader category averaging 3.34 three-pointers per game, 97 3-pointers for the season with a 42% 3-point FG%. Marco took his team to the AIA Sweet Sixteen by defeating Desert Visa high school in the 1st round playoff game with a 9/10 3-point performance and multiple assists in one night with a total of 29 points.
In the final playoff game of the season against Dobson, Marco led Chandler in scoring and assists while being covered by Division I bound opponents. Received a full-ride scholarship to Division 2 Peach Belt Conference Lander University where he played 1 year and now seeks to utilize this experience and stronger body build to transfer to a Division I program.
