Jets standout Maye helps his alma mater

Marcus Maye's family says Holy Trinity helped him get to the NFL.

Marcus Maye hasn’t forgotten his former school as Holy Trinity Episcopal recently conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open its new athletic complex.

Maye, a standout safety for the New York Jets, made a significant gift to his alma mater. It will fund the Marcus Maye Strength and Conditioning Center at the new complex.

Maye is a 2012 graduate of Holy Trinity. After starring for the Tigers, Maye went on to play football for the University of Florida.

In 2017, he was drafted by the New York Jets.

On Oct. 23, Holy Trinity held a ribbon cutting ceremony to open the $5.5 million Tiger Athletic Complex. It includes the latest generation NFL-quality artificial turf field that features CoolPlay technology. There also is a Plexitrac athletic track and field surface.

 A 13,000 square-foot athletic center has home and visitor locker rooms, concessions, restrooms, trainer facilities, a conference room, fan plaza and the conditioning center named after Maye.

The facility named after Maye is equipped with Sorinex equipment. Besides the sports teams at both the upper and lower school, the facility will be utilized for physical education classes.

In an Oct. 18 road game against the Miami Dolphins, Maye recorded one of the most acrobatic interceptions of the NFL season.
