Athletics Handbook

Welcome to the Marshall ISD Athletic Department. We seek to be a model program excelling in academics as well as 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!

"Athletics plays a large role in the success of a school district. However, we must not get closed-minded and lose sight that athletics is not separate from the school district. Through the athletic experience, we become better people. Our program will not only develop winning traditions, but also develop high character for our athletes. If we only teach a sport, we will fail our athletes, school district, and community.

Each player should receive a diploma and an education. The diploma will come when they follow the plan set by the school. As a staff, we will strive to make sure all athletes have the tools they need to reach this goal. Students will not only be receiving a school education, but an education on how to be a high moral individual in family and society. The will be taught to give their very best in all that they do. This too will be exampled to them by the coaching staff.

Players should develop a genuine care and concern for other people. They should be more accountable and accept responsibility for their actions. They will learn never to take any day for granted, for this day is the most important day. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is precious...that is why it is called the 'present.'

They should have pride to represent their country, this community and their great school. They will be taught how to use their influence on other people in a positive manner. They will learn the schizophrenic nature of sports. On the field, we need to be very physically aggressive personalities. Off the field, we expect well-mannered, respectful young people. These are learned traits and must be practiced and positively reinforced. The ultimate compliment is for the faculty, peers, and community members to say, 'He is too nice to be that guy I watch on Friday night.'

They will have fun. Athletics are meant to be enjoyed. To be enjoyed, it must be done correctly. Once learned how to compete correctly, there is no greater joy than taking the field with your teammates. The player will know that their standard is to give great effort. Once this happens, they will experience a winning tradition that will carry over into everyday life."
