Looks like it's just a very nice Okee with a bit of an aberrant pattern.

Could be incubation temperatures/conditions.
Could be a random chance of genetics.
Could even be some sort of hybrid with another colubrid species way way way back in the gene pool - so far back that it looks essentially corn.

Unless they breed it and get some sort of reliable results (i.e. babies come out looking like that, or babies bred to each other/to this animal come out looking like that) I wouldn't assume it's anything inheritable genetic.

ive just read somewhere that there is a haphazard road near the okeetee hunting club, could they be from original stock from there?

Could well be a descendant of wild-caught stock, yes - or wild-caught itself, if the snake's located in the US. Less likely to be WC if it's over here, mind you!

yeah its a US site, just seemed a coincedence that theres a haphazard road running through the okeetee club area, maybe it is a variant of wild animals, but it sounds as though they are being bred now
