Oklahoma high school football: Joe Maytubby an intimidating player for Shawnee

SHAWNEE – The menacing presence of Joe Maytubby stands out on the football field.

With long and bushy hair that flows out of his helmet and a 6-foot-5, 253-pound frame, the Shawnee senior is easy to notice. 

Coach Jason Sexton is expecting a lot from Maytubby, who will line up as a defensive end, wide receiver and tight end this year.

“Pretty rare skillset to be that big and that fast,” said Sexton, who is entering his first season as Shawnee’s coach. 

Maytubby is being recruited as a defensive end and has received offers from North Texas, Central Missouri and Pittsburg State, among others.

He expects to be an important contributor for Shawnee, which is in Class 5A this year after finishing 2-8 in both 2018 and 2019 while competing as a Class 6A-II school.
