There is no doubt about it, area football teams have had great seasons with plenty to cheer for.
The Eufaula Ironheads are looking to seal their 5th consecutive 2A-6 District Championship this Friday at Idabel.
The Ironheads have seen great improvements across the board on a very young team. Ledger Folsom has solidified his position as quarterback, Peter Lee is a star in waiting and the defense, led by Draven Gragg, is as good as it gets. The Ironheads, like Checotah, have already sealed a spot in the playoffs.
For the Checotah Wildcats it has been the best and most exciting season under head coach Zac Ross. The Wildcats are looking for their 7th win against Stigler Friday night. Senior quarterback Jacob Jones has led his team like a general. Running back Kaden Mitchell has proven himself to be dependable and incredible, Elijah Thomas is clutch on both sides of the football and Jaydin Bray is a dual threat. The biggest impact has been the players in the trenches for the Wildcats, led by Kamden Miller, Roman Westbrook and Jonah Marshall.
Yes, the football season has been great and continues next week with the start of the playoffs. Make sure to support your local athletics.
