Overview

On Fridays in the fall, a fog rises from Nancy Creek behind Marist School’s Hughes Spalding Stadium and floats across the football field. The apparition, called “the Ghosts of Marist Football,” represents the Great Spirit of Marist High School, a school Sports Illustrated ranked number fifteen in its list of top athletic programs in the country. The War Eagle tradition boasts more than six hundred victories, a trophy case filled with championships and thirty straight years of playoff appearances in Georgia high school football, all while playing much larger schools. Join author and Marist alumnus Franklin Cox for three years inside the Spartan-esque tradition and learn why no team dares allow itself to dishonor the glorious roll call of War Eagle history.

Editorial Reviews

Marist War Eagles - Alan Chadwick
"From the dog days of August practices to the elation of fourth-quarter victories, Cox gives each reader an Eagle's-eye view into the heart of the tradition-rich program that is Marist War Eagle Football."
Former Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach and Director of Athletics at Georgia Tech - Homer Rice
"Marist Football: Inside the War Eagle Tradition by author Franklin Cox is a classic. He has captured the highly successful Marist High School program and how it became a champion of champions. This is an extraordinary manuscript."
