Hello, I'm Fitzgerald Marche, and my journey in football has been nothing short of exhilarating. I laid the foundation of my career as a defensive lineman at Livingstone College, where I honed my skills and passion for the game from 2014 to 2018.
Transitioning from player to mentor, I embarked on a coaching venture in 2019 as the Assistant Defensive Line Coach at Mallard Creek HS. Together, we achieved an impressive 10-1-1 record, setting the stage for my role as the Co-Defensive Line Coach and JV Co-Defensive Coordinator at Chambers HS (formerly Vance HS) during the 2021 spring HS football season.
We were able to win a state championship and a remarkable 10-1 record at Chambers HS. The JV squad, under my guidance, boasted an undefeated record of 8-0. In the fall of 2021, I continued my journey at Northwest Cabarrus HS, taking on the roles of Defensive Line Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator.
In 2022, I found myself as the Defensive Line Coach at AL Brown HS, where three out of our four starting defensive linemen earned well-deserved spots on the all-conference roster. The following year, in 2023, I took on the dual responsibility of DL Coach and JV Defensive Coordinator at West Charlotte HS.
Our collective efforts resulted in an impressive 9-4 Varsity record and an outstanding 8-1 JV record. The first-team JV defense, under my guidance, displayed exceptional prowess, conceding an average of only 5.3 points per game. Two out of our three defensive linemen were recognized with all-conference honors, with one securing the coveted Player of the Year accolade.
As I continue to navigate the dynamic world of football coaching, my commitment to excellence remains unwavering. I look forward to the challenges and triumphs that lie ahead, fueled by a deep passion for the game and a dedication to nurturing the talents of the next generation of gridiron stars.
