The Bucks County player is continuing a long family tradition on the team.

A Bucks County football star is playing for the team his father and grandfather played in over the past few generations. Tom Moore wrote about the up-and-coming player for the Bucks County Courier Times.

Jack Dunkley, a senior defensive lineman for Neshaminy High School’s football team, is continuing a long tradition of sports for the ditrict and his family. The player is the third Jack Dunkley to play for the Bucks County team; his father, Jack Dunkley, a 1993 graduate, played as a linebacker for the same team, following in the footsteps of his father of the same name, a 1969 graduate and guard for the team.

“My grandfather and my dad have always hyped it up to me being the third Dunkley play here and I have to make it count,” said newest player said. “I feel like I have made it count. I feel honored. It’s a big (deal) to play for Neshaminy.”

With only two games left of his high school career, the young Dunkley is hoping for major wins during his team’s upcoming games.
