2019 Football Preview - Meade
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
Meade Buffaloes 2018 Record: 4-6. Lost to Sedgwick in second round of 1A State Playoffs.
The Meade Buffaloes are used to winning, so back-to-back losing seasons are not the norm for the two-time Kansas state champion. The 2019 edition will have to lean on senior leadership in order to stop the trend and end up with a winning campaign.
Every spot in the Starting 22 will be up for grabs for a young squad, but when the season starts on September 6, expect a handful of seniors to be on the PA system when the lineup is announced at Lakin.
Two-way starters Greyson Haynes and Caden Martin will not only anchor the backfield on offense, but the linebacking corps. Haynes and Martin will be joined at linebacker by fellow returning starter Korben Clawson. Offensive lineman Cullen Lumry is back to anchor the offensive front, while defensive back Jonathan Unruh also returns from last season.
"It will be very important to develop the younger players that will need to have significant playing time especially on the offensive line," said Buffaloes head coach Justin Powell. "Our leadership from our senior class will dictate our success this year."
The Buffaloes will open their home slate on September 13th against arch-rival Cimarron.
