"He's a difference maker," coach Shannon Grimes said. "He grew up last year, and we expect big things from him."
Flynn was also a star on defense with 112 tackles and four interceptions. And despite being just a sophomore, he was named to the all-district team.
Bucs offensive line impressive
After winning the title last year, Tonkawa isn't expected to drop off too much. One big reason is, of course, star running back Jake Love.
The senior has committed to Kansas and will most likely play linebacker at college. He is also a star in wrestling and track.

There is no question at quarterback for Alva as Devery Vanlandingham threw for more than 1,600 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. ...The same can be said for the Perry running game. The Maroons return Brian Yenor, who rushed for more than 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns last year.
