REMEMBERING HAYDEN BLALOCK

EMOTIONAL NIGHT FOR ALL

Maverick Nation came together Friday night to celebrate and remember the life of young Hayden Blalock.

The seventeen year old Maverick lost his life in a tragic automobile accident during Marshall's bye week when his vehicle struck an animal that was in the roadway.

With heavy hearts, Mav fans gathered to remember the young man that was a consummate Maverick through and through.

 

Lindale players wore a red sticker with Hayden's #94 on their helmet.  Eagle cheerleaders and band donned red ribbons in his honor.

 

MISD presented an emotional video to highlight the young man's life and his impact.  Thank you Mav Nation.  Thank you Lindale for remembering this fine young man.

MARSHALL FINISHES (7-4) FOR THE SEASON

It was a nailbiter for three quarters.

But it was all Huntsville in the final stanza as the Hornets scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth to pull away for the victory at Maverick Stadium.  It was a 5A Division II Region III Bi-District showdown.

Huntsville ended Marshall's season for the second consecutive year.  

The Mavs held a 6-0 lead most of the first half thanks to an 88 yard run by D Williams on the first play from scrimmage.  

Huntsville took a 7-6 lead with 2:04 left before halftime.

The Hornets increased the lead to 14-6 before Marshall pulled within 14-12 with just over 3 mins left in the third quarter.

Then the wheels came off for the Mavs as Huntsville rattled off three scores to take a commanding 35-12 lead.

Marshall's season ends with a record of (7-4).  Huntsville will advance to the Area Round with a record of (8-3).

Thank you Mav Nation for a fun and exciting year!  See you in 2020!  GO MAVS GO!

REALIGNMENT LOOMS FOR ETX 5A

The Maverick offseason will kickoff Monday as Marshall will start preparing for the 2020 football season.

There could be some wholesale changes on the way, depending on how the UIL decides to proceed on the upcoming alignment this winter.

It's all speculation at this time, but it appears that several East Texas programs could be moving around from their current positions.

Most pivotal for the Mavericks is the prospect of Texas High dropping from 5A Division I into 5A Division II.  

Where they place the Tigers could affect if Marshall remains in the mostly Southern district with Jacksonville, Nacogdoches, and Whitehouse or returns to a Northern district with the likes of Sulphur Springs, Mt. Pleasant, Royse City, and Greenville.

There have been speculations of current district mate  Lindale dropping to 4A Division II.

This shuffling could change no only the district schedule for Marshall, but the non-district portion as well.

Longview is speculated to drop from 6A into 5A Division I with John Tyler and Lufkin (and currently Texas High).

There have been rumbles of Longview and Tyler Lee being dropped from the non-district schedule.

Stay tuned to more news as it comes.  Realignment will be announced in February.
