CHOCTAW — Jake Corbin sat at a table in his coaching office, wearing a black Choctaw football T-shirt with a Jordan Brand logo and admiring the sparkly gold helmet in front of him.
The Riddell helmet with the tag still on it is armed with the latest technology to monitor the amount of contact and force delivered to a players' heads.
The new helmets are the next step of Corbin's rebrand of a program that has just two playoff berths in 34 years.
Money is being raised and spent at a breakneck pace on new jerseys, new gear and now new, safer helmets.
“We have the opportunity to let parents know we're trying to do everything we can to protect your kid," Corbin said. "Right now, it's the best available helmet you can get."
In Corbin's second year at the Class 6A-II program east of Oklahoma City, he's fully on board with the craze that has swept football at all levels — looking good on and off the field. But for Choctaw, dressing for success is as much about safety as swag.
Choctaw purchased two new uniforms last season and another this fall. Players have earned new gear — all Nike and some featuring the Jordan Brand's Jumpman logo — through the fundraising.
“We want our image and our brand to be top notch,” Corbin said. “Not just flash; it has to have substance. We have to really do what we say that we're doing.”
That truly starts with new helmets that offer some extra... [Full article at NewsOk.com]
SHAWNEE — Choctaw junior Deysean Moore estimated the pain at nine on a scale of 10, yet he never left the field.
He was Choctaw’s final hope at running back, a position he hadn’t played since the beginning of his freshman year. Scoring the winning touchdown in an overtime slobber knocker was nothing he could imagine before Friday night.
Despite the excruciating pain from cramps, the Yellowjackets’ fill-in running back pushed the pile into the end zone on the second play of overtime. He had told his teammates on the bus before the game that there was no way they would return home with a loss.
And he meant it.
So, Moore pushed himself to a new limit in No. 6 Choctaw’s wild 35-34 overtime win over No. 9 Shawnee at Jim Thorpe Stadium.
He rarely — if ever — left the field in the second half, receiving treatment on the sidelines when he did get a moment. Despite being the fourth option, Moore scored two touchdowns and rushed for 107 yards on 18 carries.
“Coach said to get ready to run the rock (at halftime) and I had no choice but to run the rock,” Moore said. “When my team needs me, I’m going to be there. My team needed it, I needed it and this town... [Full article at NewsOk.com]
Choctaw High School football completed a summer athletic training program hosted by Performance Course last week, and officially kicked off practice Monday.
“We brought in Performance Course to run our summer. This company started in Oklahoma, but is real prevalent in Texas. Some of the biggest names you hear use Performance Course,” said Choctaw head football coach Jake Corbin.
“This was new for us this year. They came in, with their coaches, and ran our summer. We have really just been here as support.”
The grueling summer athletic course focused on getting athletes into peak physical condition, and CHS coaches say that mission was successful to a point in which the district has never before seen.
“This will have been the hardest summer since the first shovel of dirt was ever lifted here in Choctaw. There’s no doubt about it,” said Corbin. “This was huge for athletes, and as coaches we could focus more on relationships. We got to step into more of an encouraging role, while their coaches played the bad guys.”
Corbin says the decision to work with Performance Course has allowed his athletes to reach new physical levels, while his coaches focus on the bigger picture of the improving program.
“We met with them months before they started, and they echo everything we teach from our core values to our G.O.L.D Standard. They talk like we do and treat our kids really well. They treated our kids really good,” said Corbin.
“Today we ran 50 40-yard sprints. Last week we ran 24 110- yard sprints, all timed. All of our big linemen can do multiple pullups. They’re in the best shape they’ve ever been in their lives. It’s not even close. I’m telling you, I guarantee this was the toughest summer in the history of Choctaw.”
Corbin is confident the condition of his team moving into fall practice will result in wins once the season gets underway. “I’m really excited about this year’s team. We have great kids that have 100 percent bought into our culture. They’re tough and work hard,” said Corbin. “They believe in our G.O.L.D Standard and teach it to the younger guys, who teach it to the middle school kids, who teach it to the little INFC Football kids. We all act the same, look the same and work the same all the way down to little league.”
The high school varsity football season begins Aug. 24 at Shawnee.
Oklahoma high school athletics will get a summer break, whether schools like it or not.
The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association voted to approve a policy that would institute a summer dead period beginning in the summer of 2019.
The policy was approved after a 9-3 vote during the board of directors monthly meeting on Wednesday.
Under the new rule, OSSAA member schools will prohibit use of school facilities and contact between coaches and their athletes for a 9-day period centered around the Fourth of July weekend.
The first summer dead period will be scheduled for June 29, 2019 through July 6th, 2019. The dates will fluctuate year to year.
The policy was sent out in a survey to member schools in February. Of the 485 member schools, 375 schools responded and 68 percent of those schools were in favor of the policy.
OSSAA Executive Director David Jackson said he believes the dead period will provide a much-needed break for both coaches and student athletes.
From everyone we've talked to, most seem to agree that they wish they had time in the summer to take some time off," Jackson said. "But knowing that your opponent isn't taking that time off prevented a lot of coaches from taking that step."
The OSSAA has discussed this policy for months, enlisting the help of other state activity boards who have implemented a dead period, and surveying the membership three times to try and help narrow down exactly what the parameters of the policy should be.
Despite getting a large majority of voters to respond to the most recent survey to say they are in favor, some board members remained skeptical.
Shane Boothe, who represents the southwest quadrant of the state, said he heard from several coaches and athletic directors from his area who believed the policy cut too much into the beginning of football conditioning.
While his constituents support a break in athletics, it's the timing if the break they didn't approve of.
"I think there is some concern that sports has become a year-round thing," Boothe said. "I think there's a need that's been identified and it's a good thought, but the devil is in the details."
Fellow board member Bryan McNutt, who voted yes on the policy, said there's plenty of time to iron everything out.
"There were a lot of questions about how," McNutt said. "The whole intent was to give some time off and that has been received very positively. Now we've got a year to really figure out all the details in how to make it work."
Blanchard athletic director and football coach Jeff Craig said there won't be a huge change with his summer workouts.
"We never want to tell a kid 'No, you can't go on summer vacation.'" Craig said. "The way things are going anymore, people are asking kids to chew up their whole summer. So this is probably not a bad idea."

When Stillwater High needed offense in the fourth quarter to put the nail in Choctaw’s coffin, it turned to its ground attack.
Freshman tailback Qwontrel Walker stepped up late for the Pioneers when the Yellowjackets were climbing back into Thursday’s contest. Walker put the Pioneers on his back, as the Stillwater ground game clinched the crucial district win.
Walker broke a huge run two plays after Choctaw cut Stillwater’s lead to one possession. Four plays later, senior running back Tyler Disidore punched in the final score, giving Stillwater a 35-24 win.
“This was a really big district game,” Disidore said. “Lawton was a big one, too, but we let that one slip. We don’t plan on letting another one slip away from us.”
Disidore finished the game with 11 carries for 32 yards and three touchdowns. His counterpart, Walker, led Stillwater with 193 yards on 28 carries and pair of touchdowns.
Walker’s 57-yard run two plays after Choctaw cut the lead to four points was arguably the biggest play of the night for Stillwater’s offense. He broke a 15-yard run three plays later, converting a third-down conversion. He left the game after the play, but Disidore scored on a 4-yard run the on the ensuing play.
“Oh yeah, it felt good to run the ball again,” Disidore said. “I think it’s a really good combo. He gets all the yards and I’m the big body to punch it in. I think we have a really good set up here.”
Disidore and the Pioneers were happy to bounce back Thursday after losing at Lawton last week. That loss ended their five-game winning streak to begin the season.
“After losing to Lawton, that brought us back down to Earth,” Disidore said. “That was really good motivation for this week’s practices. We went really hard this week and I think it definitely paid off.”
Stillwater coach Tucker Barnard agreed, saying Thursday’s win was important for the district standings and for his team’s confidence moving forward with four regular season game remaining.
“We feel like if we win out, we could likely be in a three-way tie situation that could come down to points,” Barnard said. “We didn’t get our 15 here and we were 14 down last week. It could be a bit...view full article at stwnewspress.com
It's been a remarkable week for the Plainsmen, coming off their 49-42 double overtime win last week over district foe Putnam City West.
The unlikely comeback from a 35-point fourth quarter deficit drew attention on Twitter and from nationally recognized outlets like well-regarded footballscoop.com, which noted the feat was even possibly more remarkable considering Enid did it without recovering a single onside kick.
It's been fun to bask in, but now it's time to file it away with Choctaw coming to D. Bruce Selby Stadium tonight at 7 for Enid's homecoming. Well, not so fast said Enid head coach Steve Hayes earlier this week.
"In an era of participation awards, I think our kids have a sense of confidence that comes from accomplishing things," Hayes said. "What they did in the fourth quarter (last week) was extraordinary. I think they have a right to have confidence from that.
He continued, "I think we did something (last Friday) that exceptional groups do and it was an exceptional accomplishment on our part. I think the takeaway from all this is you define yourself differently after something like that, individually and as a team. So I think they have a right to look at themselves a little differently at this point because they've done something that very few ... have done."
While it does boost the team's confidence and give opponents something to be concerned about, it doesn't make the Plainsmen's (3-1 overall, 1-0 in district) task against the visiting Yellowjackets (3-1, 0-1) a simple matter as Enid hosts its first home game since its season-opening win over Guthrie on Aug. 25, a span of 35 days. The Plainsmen went 2-1 on their extended road trip.
Choctaw had a three-game winning streak snapped after falling 38-10 last week at home to Putnam City, possibly not just the best team in District 6AII-I, but the Pirates may be the best team in 6A-II this season.
They Yellowjackets also are coming to Enid with bitter memories after Enid pulled a stunning win last season at Choctaw 43-39 after the Jackets gifted the game with a late interception and the game's outcome all but certain with just a couple of kneel-downs needed for victory.
That game was the starting debut of quarterback Mason Skrimager, who like in the win last week over PC West, rebounded from a rough start to rally the team beh... view full article at enidnews.com
After producing never before seen numbers in recent years, Choctaw coaches say their off ense is once again stacked as a potential lineup of over 100 Yellowjackets is set to provide the depth needed to be a Class 6A-II contender.
Choctaw High School will take a simple approach to the offensive side of the ball this season relying on a deep roster of talented athletes focused on the fundamentals of football.
Going into the spring CHS was equipped with over 30 offensive plays, and now the team is down to less than 20.
“There’s an old adage to get really good at what you do, and a lot of teams don’t really follow that. We’re doing our best to stay focused on not getting bored, and just doing things fundamentally correct. That’s our focus every day. We’re enabling our kids to play fast, and sound fundamentally,” explained head coach Jake Corbin.
Choctaw’s coaches believe their roster contains the weapons needed to put up big numbers, and this year that looks to be a long list of athletic receivers
Quarterbacks Once again Choctaw will have some depth with two quarterbacks battling for the No. 1 spot on the varsity roster. Senior Hudson Woods returns as the favorite. After getting some varsity time as a sophomore, Woods returned last season to pass for 286 yards on 16 plays for three touchdowns. He also had 103 yards rushing including four TDs for last year’s squad. “Hudson Woods has done a great job as quarterback, and he’s been great stepping up into his leadership role. He always has a positive attitude with a smile on his face,” said Corbin/
However, sophomore Thad Williams has stepped up to challenge the senior and is showing great potential.
“Williams is battling Woods for the starting QB spot, and that’s not totally settled because both of them are just so good,” said Corbin. “I’ve never felt so good about having two kids in the quarterback spot anywhere I’ve been, because they’re both just so solid. As young men and quarterbacks they're... view full article at The Choctaw Times
Jake Corbin has taken the helm of Choctaw High School football, and his newly assembled coaching staff plan to set the gold standard in Class 6A-II.
“The GOLD STANDARD is our core values - Gratitude, Ownership, Leadership and Discipline. We teach this every day, have lessons every day, our kids teach it and we really believe it. We try to be grateful for every day we have, we try to take ownership of every day, and try to have leadership through servant leadership. We have seniors out here cleaning up the field where as it use to be sophomores doing that work. The seniors understand to lead you have to serve, and they’ll serve their teammates. We set these core values as a team over the summer,” Corbin said.
Corbin, a Carl Albert High School alumnus, earned a teaching and school administration degree from the University of Oklahoma. His first job was at Carl Albert Middle School then he went to Del City High School as an assistant. Corbin then headed to the powers in the east, first at Tulsa Union, then Broken Arrow as an assistant before being named the head coach at Sapulpa. From there, he came back to eastern Oklahoma County as the Del City head football coach and athletic director a year ago.
He was officially brought on board at Choctaw last spring as replacement for Todd Dilbeck, who accepted a position at the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association.
“This is a dream job for me,” said Corbin. “I appreciate the confi dence that everyone has shown in me and I am very impressed with the reception I have received.”
The new head coach has assembled a team of energetic staff members to help shape the CHS squad into a serious contender this fall.
“Anytime you come in somewhere new the hardest part is gaining the trust of the kids. You’re always starting on someone’s senior year, and I try to put myself in their shoes. I have to earn their trust to get them to play for me and themselves,” said Corbin. “I am honored, humbled and blessed above all to try to continue... view full article at The Choctaw Times
J.D. Runnels has used his Choctaw gym to help local athletes train and develop. Now, he's helping a local high school.
Runnels was added to Choctaw's football staff this week as an offensive adviser, where he joins his former Carl Albert teammate Jake Corbin.
“I think sometimes for head coaches it helps to have another football brain around to take the pressure off and just to deal with other things you may see that they don't,” Runnels said. “Aside from helping a friend and helping kids I train I'll be doing a little bit of everything.”
Runnels added that he will help with special teams.
Last season, Choctaw went 5-5. Coach Todd Dilbeck retired, and Corbin was hired from Del City. Bringing on Runnels adds some valuable experience...view full article at newsok.com
It took 11 days for Choctaw to find a new football coach.
The Yellowjackets named Del City coach Jake Corbin as their new football coach and assistant athletic director during a special board meeting on Thursday.
The move comes less than two weeks after coach and athletic director Todd Dilbeck announced his retirement to accept an assistant director position with the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association.
“Choctaw to me has unlimited potential,” Corbin told The Oklahoman. “Coach Dilbeck and his staff have done a tremendous job with the vision and direction of not only the football program but the entire athletic program.”
Assistant baseball coach and assistant athletic director Mike Hessman was promoted to athletic director.
Corbin said Choctaw administrators approached him about the position. It didn't take long to complete the process.
He spent just one season at Del City and went 6-5. The Eagles [Full article at NewsOk.com]
