THE COVINGTON BUCCS IN THE STATE PLAYOFFS...
Playoff football has become an annual event for the Covington Buccaneers as the program has consistently found success over the years.
Dave Tobias led the Buccaneers to their lone state finals appearance in 1979.
Gene Studebaker led the Buccs to two consecutive playoff appearances in 2005 and 2006.
Garrett Clark and the 2009 seniors went to the state playoffs four times.

The Covington Buccaneers have have a rich tradition of success on the football field, which is evident by the number of years the program has qualified for the state playoffs. The Buccs have reached the tournament in 24 seasons.

Covington's first playoff appearance came in 1979 and the Buccs have since built a 18-24 record in the post season. Of those 24 defeats, 11 of those came to eventual state finalists and 7 came to the eventual state champion.

The longest concurrent streak of playoff appearances by Covington is 12 seasons in a row - which ran from 2005 to 2016.

Covington's lone appearance in the state finals came in 1979 with a 23-17 double-overtime loss to Mogadore.
