SPRING DRILLS WILL CULMINATE WITH RED AND WHITE GAME IN MAY

The 2022 football season is just around the corner and the Marshall Mavericks are going full throttle this spring in preparation of the annual Red and White game.

Marshall is coming off a 2021 season that saw them advance to the area around of the playoffs before falling to the Crosby Cougars.

New Head Football Coach Jack Alvarez and his staff bring a bevy of experience that includes a state championship, a state semifinals, and multiple deep playoff runs at programs like Ennis and Cuero.

The Mavericks are looking to take the next step to greatness in 2022 as the upward trajectory of the program has continued for several seasons under multiple coaches.

The Mavs are once again expected to challenge for the 8-5A district championship against the likes of Texarkana Texas High, Nacogdoches, and Pine Tree...among others.

Spring drill run from April 18 through May 19th.

The University Interscholastic League announced it's realignment for the 2022-23 athletic seasons and the Mavericks will see some changes in all of their district line-ups.

The district only saw one change in football from the previous two seasons with Jacksonville dropping to class 4A Division I.  Everyone else will return, including Texas High, Hallsville, Pine Tree, Mount Pleasant, Nacogdoches, and Whitehouse.

Transitioning from 9-5A to 8-5A moves the district out of  Houston-centric region III, and into  a North Texas region II. 

 

This will mean first round playoff games will be Vs. teams from the metroplex.  Matchups will be Denison, Crandall, Lucas Lovejoy, Terrell, Mesquite Poteet, Greenville, Princeton, and Melissa.  For the last several alignments, first round games have been south with schools like Montgomery, Lamar, Huntsville, A&M Consolidated, and other Houston area schools.

MISD has not officially announced the 2022-23 football schedule.  This is the UNOFFICIAL schedule:

 

Aug 19- Tyler Legacy (Scrimmage)
Aug 26- Tyler
Sep 02- @ Longview
Sep 09- Henderson
Sep 16- @ Carthage

Sep 23- Pine Tree
Sep 30- @ Hallsville
Oct 07- Mount Pleasant
Oct 14- @ Texas High
Oct 21- Bye Week
Oct 28- Nacogdoches (Senior Night)
Nov 04- @ Whitehouse

 

Marshall will renew their rivalry with Tyler High for the season opener.  This will be their first meeting since 2011.   Tyler is Marshall's oldest rival, dating back to 1908, one year before the first meeting with Longview.

 

The Lobos, dating back to 1909 are the week two match-up.

 

4A Henderson takes the week three matchup.  They last played Marshall in 2007 as district rivals before the Lions dropped to 4A in 2008.

 

Non-district play will wrap up with 4A Carthage, renewing the rivalry that was rebooted in 2018 and 2019.  COVID ended the series in 2020 because of scheduling conflicts.  

 

District play will kick off Vs. Pine Tree followed by Hallsville.  Marshall, Pine Tree, and Hallsville have been district rivals every season since 2002.

 

Mount Pleasant comes to Marshall (likely homecoming) followed by a huge road game to Texarkana, whom Marshall has a history that dates back to 1911.

 

Following a bye week, Marshall will host Nacogdoches, whom they have played intermittently since 1917.

 

The regular season will close at Whitehouse, whom the Mavs first played in 2004.

 

For all other sports, Marshall will be in district 15-5A, which includes:  Longview, Hallsville, Pine Tree, Mount Pleasant, Texas High with the new additions of Tyler and Whitehouse.
