DECEMBER 1, 2016 - COVINGTON
Football is the ultimate team game and the 2016 Covington Buccaneers are the epitome of the word "Team" by the way the kids were able to stick together through adversity to accomplish lofty goals.
But with team success comes individual success and four Buccaneers were the benefactors of the team's success by being recognized as individuals by the media in the All-Ohio selections for Division VII football with two first-team selections and two second-team selections.
The two first-team All-Ohio selections for the Buccs were senior quarterback Nathan Blei and senior linebacker Deron White.
The two players who earned second-team All-Ohio were seniors Branden Robinson and Seth Thomas.
All four Buccaneer players were much deserving of their recognition by the media for All-Ohio, but it wouldn't have been possible without the other 46 kids in uniform and the coaches who put them in position to be successful. So these All-Ohio selections represent the success of the entire Buccaneer family of 2016.
