It has taken Choctaw County High School less than a season to make an impact on high school football in the state of Mississippi. Last Thursday a trio of CCHS Chargers were chosen to take part in a pair of prominent high school all-star football games that are scheduled for December 14.

Defensive lineman Taboris Lee was one of just 42 players chosen to represent the state in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Classic that will be played on Dec. 14 in Montgomery, Ala.

A week later, on Dec. 21, defensive lineman Tre Brown and offensive lineman Paxton Sims will both be part of the South team as the 2013 Bernard Blackwell All-Star Football Game is played in Gulfport.

“That’s a big honor for the school and will be a big day for all of them,” said CCHS head coach Adam Dillinger. “They have all played since they were freshman and have started and played in a lot of football games. They are all big and strong. This was just a real good class for us as far as linemen go.”

Other players from surrounding counties taking part in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Classic are quarterback Wyatt Roberts and linebacker Jeremy Sangster of Louisville High School; defensive lineman Jalen Stewart and Corey Brown of Columbus High School; and running backs Roger Thomas and Aeris Williams of West Point.

Other area players chosen for the Bernard Blackwell All-Star game are Justin Robertson of Noxapater, Eric Hunt of Noxubee County, and Lavarious Varnado of Calhoun City.
