With eleven seniors and eleven returning letterman coming back from a 6-4 season a year ago, expectations were high for another winning season in 1993.

Unfortunately the Buccaneers fell short of their goal, finishing at 4-6 with two of the losses coming by a single point.

The Buccaneers appeared to be well on their way for an outstanding season as they began the season with three straight wins. Those wins came against Miami East, 28-12; National Trail, 26-14; and Tri-County North, 14-0.

A season of promise began to unravel after a 30-0 shellacking at the hand of Bethel gave Covington its first defeat.

Four more losses followed in consecutive games, but the losses to Mississinawa Valley and Arcanum hurt the most. In both contests the Buccs fell short by one point.

Covington finally ended the losing streak with a 27-8 victory over Lakeside Danbury in week nine.

The celebration was short lived, however, as the Buccs suffered their most embarrassing loss of the year in the season finale to rival Bradford, 34-0. The loss to the Railroaders was the worse loss ever suffered to Bradford in terms of point differential.

Along with the nine seniors the Buccaneers lose to graduation, the Buccaneers will have a new head coach in 1994. Dave Tobias stepped down and moves into an assistant coaching position under Bob Riley.

Post season honors for 1993 were: Ben Garber, First team all CCC; Joe Shefbuch, Kris Alexander and Andy Shaffer were named Honorable Mention All League.
