Welcome to the Marshall ISD Athletic Department. We seek to be a model program excelling in academics and on the athletic field of competition. We want to see our student-athletes reach the highest level of success in each sports program and provide them with a safe and healthy environment in which to compete. 

As Marshall Mavericks we strive to recognize the overall positive production of our programs, reflecting on the quality of athletes, coaches, and resources provided. Our goal is to be among the top schools in athletic achievement as well as in academic measures such as student-athlete graduation rate.

It is our desire to create an athletic department in which our students, our staff and our community can all be proud. It is our goal to do our part to help further make Marshall Proud and Maverick Strong!
