Late TD lifts FWB past Choctaw
FORT WALTON BEACH - Counting Friday night’s clash at Steve Riggs Stadium, the Fort Walton Beach Vikings and the Choctaw Indians have met 42 times on the football field.
It’s hard to imagine any of those 42 matching the drama and excitement put forth in the 2012 edition

Reed powers Crestview to district win
FORT WALTON BEACH – It was the Micah Reed Show Friday night at Joe Etheredge Stadium.
Splitting the tackles for a pair 70-plus-yard runs and routinely running over linebackers and making tacklers miss left and right, the Crestview running back rushed 31 times for 260 yards and four scores to lead the Bulldogs (3-4) to a 28-24 District 2-6A win over Choctaw (2-5).
It was an affirmation of hope, a simple message shared by two coaches.
In separate interviews on separate days, Crestview head coach Kevin Pettis and Choctaw head coach Greg Thomas made sure to clarify one thing headed into Friday’s District 2-6A matchup at Choctaw: Last week’s 21-17 District 2-6A losses weren’t backbreakers.
AVARRE – Jordan Leggett hauled in the pass around the 25, sidestepped three tackles and was gone.
The Navarre senior and Clemson commitment tip-toed the left sideline en route to a 36-yard score, his third of the game, with 1:41 to play to lift the Raiders to a comeback 21-17 win over Choctaw Friday on Homecoming night at Bennett C. Russell Stadium.
While it has both its merits and its faults, the common opponent argument is an often-used reference point when comparing teams. And Choctaw and Navarre are no different.
In their case, only five weeks into the season they share two opponents: Pensacola Catholic and Niceville. As for the outcomes, their success against the Eagles paints the picture of two evenly-matched teams, while their results against the Crusaders couldn’t be more disparate.
The game time for the varsity football game at Navarre has been changed to 7:30.
Choctaw stuns Niceville on last-second kick
FORT WALTON BEACH -- Choctaw’s seven-year streak of futility against Niceville is dead. And more importantly, the Indians’ hope of a District 2-6A championship is more alive than ever.
John Hicks rushed for 157 yards and a pair of scores and Dominique Jordan kicked a 24-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Indians to a 31-28 nail-biting win Friday over Niceville, which had defeated Choctaw seven straight times starting in 2005.
It was the second consecutive win for the Indians, who improved to 2-3 on the year. But that’s not the record of concern at Choctaw, which is more focused on the 1-0 district mark. Read More
The facts: The Eagles enter the tilt with seven consecutive wins over the Indians dating back to 2005. That includes a 14-13 win at home last year over the Indians, who finished 4-1 in district play and second to the 4-1 Eagles in the District 2-6A title hunt. But both teams have struggled to regain the swagger of 2011 this season.
To hear Thomas Forte describe the play elicits memories of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, the famous walk-on Notre Dame line-backer whose heart overshadowed his diminutive size.
The scene was Choctaw at Pensacola Washington on Sept. 14, and the Indians state-renowned weightlifter was ordered to blitz. No problem, right? Well, except for the 6-foot-2, 250-pound Washington lineman standing between the quarterback and Forte -- all 5-4 and 155 pounds of him. Read More
Choctaw destroys Tishomingo
FORT WALTON BEACH - It took Tishomingo County’s football team seven hours to travel from its campus in North-east Miss. to Choctaw High’s Joe Etheridge Stadium for Friday night’s out-of-state battle.
It took Choctaw all of one quarter to put the game away. Read More

Choctaw to host Mississippi foe on big night
Saddled with a disappointing 0-3 start to the 2012 season, Choctawhatchee High head coach Greg Thomas believes there’s only one thing that his Indians can do after losing their first three games by a cumulative total of 11 points.
“We just have to leave it behind us,” said Thomas. “No matter what has happened so far, we just have to move on. Obviously, we are disappointed, but those games have to be in the past.”
It’s been 60 years this month since Roy Pike and his classmates walked through the doors of the newly constructed Choctawhatchee High School in Shalimar.
Pike, an athlete in the first senior class of the school, and other alumni, former faculty and staff, plus community fans are invited to the celebration on Sept. 21, one day shy of the school’s milestone anniversary.
