Oklahoma school flagged for 22 penalties for 172 yards and wins anyway

By

Points 24, Penalties 22.

Or how about this:

Rushing yards 227, Penalty yards 172.

Yes, a high school team in Oklahoma City was flagged for 22 penalties for 172 yards, but still ended up with a 24-13 victory.

Choctaw downed Putnam City behind 125 yards rushing for Tyrel Bell and two touchdown passes from Braydn Hunt.

An exasperated coach Todd Dilbeck told The Oklahoman: “It’s a lot of things that we’ve got to cut out and eliminate, and they’ll see it on film. When you get a penalty, your offense never gets in a rhythm. We talk about tempo, and we never got our tempo where we feel like we’re lining up and just going. But I think the effort was great from our kids.”

Nonetheless, a win is a win. And Choctaw moved to 2-0.
