Crawford head coach Matt Marquez shows off his chains during Saturday's Division V championship game at Escondido High.

From the Colts Coach:

Crawford’s Matt Marquez isn’t your typical high school football coach. For one, the former Marine corpsman served in three tours of Iraq. The tours came within a 19-month span, so he keeps football in perspective.
