Prince McJunkins, 59, a former Muskogee High School quarterback, is the second MHS quarterback to die this week. McJunkins, who played until 1979, when he went on to star at Wichita State, died in a Tulsa hospital of COVID-19-related complications.
McJunkins, a pioneer of the mobile quarterback style that is popular today, confused and confounded defenses by not only standing and passing, but scrambling, passing and picking up yards with his legs.
“He was soft-spoken, polite, respectful and just a good human being,” one loved one said today. “He was a wonderful person.”
Services are pending at House of Winn funeral home.
