Seniors build a foundation for Choctaw County future

June 10, 2014

ACKERMAN – A new journey began last year at Choctaw County.
Gone were the days of the Ackerman Indians and Weir Lions and in their place stood the Choctaw County Chargers.
It was not an easy task to bring the two schools together and a rallying point was needed. That role quickly fell on the Charger athletic programs that rose to the challenge and in the end saw a community bond in support of its athletes.
“With any change, there are naysayers, but once it came around and we dove into it everybody got behind it,” Choctaw County football coach and athletic director Adam Dillinger said. “When it comes down to it, they want what is best for the student. They are going to get behind them, support those kids and they did a good job of it.”
