There’s not many teams that do have a winning record vs Marist. Some have only played a few times, and some have played at least 3 games against them. In the modern era of football, or just since Chadwick has been there, the teams that do have a winning record vs Marist are as follows:

Baldwin Co….1-0
Dougherty Co.1-0
Peach Co…….1-0
Thomas Co. Central…6-1

That’s only 10 teams that have a winning record against Coach Chadwick. Very impressive.
