Maranatha Academy has fielded a football team since 1977. The Crusaders have won several conference championships, and currently compete in the Great 8, 8-man conference as an independent. Rich Akins (1977-2008), founded the program and coached the team for 31 seasons, ending with the 2008 season. His son, Dan, coached the Crusaders for four seasons (2009-2012). Ben Flack was at the helm for the next four seasons (2013-16), completing the 2016 campaign with a 2-5 record. MBA graduate Phil Price takes over the program for 2017 and will be assisted by fellow alumni Bryan Brock and Caleb Stevens, along with volunteer assistant James Gwin.
