The verb 'got' is the past tense of the verb 'get', an action verb, but it can be a linking verb. A linking verb is usually a form of the verb to be or become.

The easy way to recognize a linking verb is that a linking verb acts as an equals sign, the object is a different form of the subject (Mary is my sister. Mary=sister); or the subject becomes the object (My feet got wet. feet->wet).

In the sentence, 'Marvin got an A in math.', the object of the verb 'A' is not a form of Marvin.
