To climb to the top and win a state championship is a huge accomplishment, but to stay at the top of the peak and repeat is monumental. Such is the story for the Buccaneers, who won the school’s seventh football championship in 2018 and gets to defend their crown with six returning starters from an offensive unit that averaged 31 points per game. The familiar names include a trio of wide receivers in Parker Miller (5-11, 160, Sr.), Peyton Day (5-6, 140, Sr.) and Cody Morgan (6-5, 175, Sr.). The Bucs return veteran leadership to the offensive front, anchored by Joby Jauregui (6-0, 175, Sr.) and Austin Sharp (5-11, 230, Sr.). 


Tonkawa opens the 2019 season with a 13-game winning streak and expects senior leadership to be the foundation of its 4-4 defensive alignment. Six starters return, anchored on the front line by Joby Jauregui, Austin Sharp and Cody Morgan. Peyton Day protects the edge against the run or pass at linebacker. The quickness of the secondary should remain solid, allowing press coverage and physical run support energized by the efforts of Parker Miller. For the Buccaneers to repeat as Class A champions, veteran coach Mike Kirtley’s squad must survive the weekly demands of District A-5.
