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."
