Tucker, now a junior at Blanchard, is the starting center for the Lions, who will play Kingfisher for the Class 3A football championship at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Boone Pickens Stadium.
His father, Darren Yarbrough, was a starting lineman on the Lions' 1979 team, which won the school's only football state championship in its only previous title game appearance.
