Choctaw County football

Choctaw County coach Jeff Roberts talks with his team.

ACKERMAN – It wasn’t without some early hiccups, but the Jeff Roberts era is off to a successful start in Choctaw County.

Roberts, the first-year head coach of the Chargers, saw his football team overcome a rocky beginning to claim a 34-20 victory over Independence.

“Everybody finally relaxed,” Roberts said. “I think we played really tight at the beginning, then we started to grind.”
