War Eagle Fever Is...In...The...Air!

Marist football is almost as old as the school itself, having first taken the field in 1912, just 11 years after the Society of Mary founded the institution. Marist won its first state title in 1948, eight overall and three affiliated with the Georgia High School Association (1989, 2003, and 2020). Football alumni have gone on to play at every level of collegiate as well as professional football with notable alumni such as Sean McVay, Kyle Hamilton, and Chris Davis to name a few. Head Coach Alan Chadwick, the 2nd most winningest coach in Georgia high school football history (399 wins), has been the leader of the program for 36 years and affiliated with Marist football for 45 years.
