ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Marshall Christian School in Albertville made history this season by having the first six-man football program in the county.

Prior to this program, basketball was the main sport at the school, which is why their homecoming used to be held on the hardwood.

Caleb Malone, a senior on the team, said he hopes interest in the new athletic opportunity increases each year.

"I hope that it continues to grow. We're losing, I think, seven or eight seniors, so we're going to be missing a lot of talent. We're losing our quarterback and a lot of our starting defense. But I think kids will be interested whenever they hear about it and they'll play," he said.

The Stallions fell to Clay County Christian Academy 99-72.
