There’s a hill alongside Choctaw County’s football practice field over in Ackerman.
Last week, as the Chargers got ready for a homecoming matchup against Kosciusko, first-year Choctaw County head coach Jeff Roberts got a can of spray paint. He walked over to that hill and went to work. On it, he wrote, ‘Win the week.’
The Chargers saw it as they prepared to face the Whippets last Friday. It must have registered with the team because Choctaw County went out and not only won the week, they dominated it to the tune of a 48-7 win.
