History: Chadwick becomes 11th to win 300 games in Georgia, but who has he beaten?

Alan Chadwick of Marist became the 11th coach to win 300 games in Georgia last week with a victory over Clarke Central.

The Georgia High School Football Historians Association this season added a feature that allows readers to see how Georgia coaches have done against each opponent they have faced. Click on the link on Chadwick’s name above to see the Marist coach’s record. You’ll noticed that he’s beaten eight schools 10 times or more. St. Pius is the most common victim. Chadwick is 22-3 against the Golden Lions, although St. Pius has won those three recently.

Only Tucker (12-7) and Thomas County Central (5-1) have winning records against Chadwick when facing him more than twice.

To see any coach’s record against opponents, check out the GHSFHA site.

In case you’re interested, here is Nick Hyder.

And while we’re at it, here is a list that ran last month generated from this data. It’s the coaches with victories over the most schools.

123 – Rodney Walker
118 – Charlie Winslette

Thanks to GHSFHA webmaster Bobby Hodges for his help in creating these features and generating lists.

The Georgia High School Football Historians Association was founded in 2002 by Loren Maxwell with the mission of documenting the history of high school football in the state. The association’s website has scores of games dating to 1894. Most school’s history of scores are complete back to 1948, when the Georgia High School Association put football-playing schools in classifications for the first time and held state championships. Also found on this site are state rankings, all-state players, state champions and much more.

I believe Charles Winslette was at Fayette Co. High in late 70’s-early 80’s ? Very good coach

The title of this article is demeaning to Coach Chadwick & Marist. “but who has he beaten”?
Come on.. You win 300 games as a HC in the HS football crazed state of Ga & it’s a helluvan accomplishment!! Marist has always played “up” in classification & they have done extremely well while producing very good students, academically speaking.

Marist does get results with academics and sports but really the region they have played in last 2 years besides Tucker who do they play? AA region with Buford,Westminster,Lovett, and Trinity was better than who they played. Money is the reason bigger schools bring bigger crowds. The competition is less SWD, Chamblee, Dunwoody…Please maybe 20 years ago they were good. Look at Marist region this year a bunch of nobodys. They probably won’t give up a point in region play !

@Good Coach — Marist does not pick its region, but a few years ago region-mates Marist and Tucker met in the 4A state championship. This year the region is weaker, but Marist chose to schedule non-region games vs Clarke-Central, Thomas County Central, and Lovett. For many recent years, Marist’s region was among the toughest in the state. If you honestly think the 2A region is better, you’re nuts; Buford is strong, but the rest are just average at best. None of this takes away from Chadwick’s great career winning 300 games.

I don’t think Todd was demeaning Chadwick’s accomplishments. I think he was just answering the question “who did Marist play” during Chadwick’s tenure. But Todd can speak for himself.

Marist may not be listed as a dynasty, but they are easily the most consistent “winning” program in the state over the last 40 years. In addition, they have won the award for the best athletic program EVERY year since the award started 10-15 years ago. Impressive for a school that has 100% of it’s grads go to college.

what a complete tool–if Marist didn’t play up he would have won more than 350 games and propably 10 state titles

I will give Marist credit for “playing up”. The state of GA should bring back the multiplier for private schools that was used for several years. Other states use this and it evens the field. Not all private schools recruit, but schools like Marist do.
