Hey there, Sports fans! It's Andrew here with a post about the gridiron game. So, come on and let's take a look into Choctaw Football!
First, we are in the transition from Division III Sports into Division II. This means that our schedule is a little tougher on the front end, but as we progress, we hope to become a strong competitor in the Gulf South Conference. As a part of this transition time, there is a lot of opportunity for new players to step up and perform.
One of the main benefits of being in D2 athletics is the scholarship aspect. Now that we are back in Division II, the athletic programs are allowed to offer scholarships. Be sure to contact the coaches for more information.
Second, we are back in the Gulf South Conference. In the old days, MC played in the GSC. Now that we are back in Division II Sports, we have returned to the Gulf South Conference, and this will put us against great clubs like Delta State and University of North Alabama. As we build our program, we hope to become contenders in this great conference.
Finally, we have a new Head Coach, John Bland. Before he arrived at MC, Coach Bland coached at The University of the Cumberlands. He has served on staff at Rice and Southern Arkansas University. He graduated from The University of Arkansas and has a Master's Degree in Kinesiology from Auburn University. Coach Bland was announced as the Coach of the Choctaws earlier this year.
