DALLAS, TX. – Dallas Marshals have announced details about their 2018 coaching staff. Joining Head Coach Larry Hendrix this season will be Rodric Boatman, Broderick Sublet, Jesse Shields, Elijah Page and JR Knowlton.
Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator Larry Hendrix is returning to the Marshals for his 3rd season with the team. With over a dozen years of combined playing and coaching experience, Hendrix became Head Coach for the Marshals in 2016 for their inaugural season bringing a wealth of knowledge to the organization. Last season, Coach Hendrix led the Marshals to a 7-5 regular season record missing the playoffs by a game.
“Last year was a good year,” said Hendrix. “We hit a lot of our team goals for the season and we learned how to win close games against very good teams. But, we came up short of the main goal, getting into the playoffs.”
From a coaching standpoint, Coach Hendrix plans to carry the momentum from last season into 2018. “From the beginning, we brought in men of only local players and they came together as a team,” said Hendrix. “As coaches, we have to keep the same mindset from day one so our players will buy-in to our plan. That base we set will be the biggest part of making us successful.”
The chemistry of the coaching staff will be the biggest attribute to the team’s success. Coach Hendrix is excited to have Rodric Boatman, Broderick Sublet, Elijah Page and JR Knowlton joining him once again this season. “We believe in each other, and we are there for each other no matter what. We make sure we are all on the same page to be successful.”
Boatman returns to the Marshals’ staff for his 2nd season as the Assistant Head Coach/Assistant Offensive Coordinator and QB Coach. Sublet returns to the Marshals’ staff for his 3rd season as team’s Defensive Coordinator. Page returns to the Marshals’ staff for his 2nd season as the Defensive Back Coach. Knowlton returns to the Marshals’ staff for his 3rd season as the Offensive Line Coach. New to the Marshals’ coaching staff this season is Jesse Shields, who joins the team as the Wide Receiver Coach. Shields spent two years as a standout CIF receiver for the Marshals.
