After high school Mark attended Baylor University, where as a Freshman he was redshirted on the Baylor Bears baseball team. During this period, he injured his shoulder and was no longer able to play baseball. But this did not stop Mark from fully embracing his college experience. He was a proud member of the Kappa Alpha Order. Two things he truly loved: his Baylor Bears and the Kappa Alpha Order.
