Coach McGuire is in his fourth season (2017-2018) at the helm of the basketball program.

Before the 2014-2015 season, the Duncan High School boys’ basketball team had only won 8 games in the previous two seasons combined. Playing an extremely tough schedule with only 1 senior on the roster, the Demon endured some hardships in 2016-2017. Forty-four total game were lost to player injuries, forcing the Demons to continuously juggle the line-ups and rotations. In 2017-2018, the Demons will return all 5 starters and the top 9 players in the rotation. The future looks bright.
A former All-State/Oil Bowl football player and graduate of Waurika High School, Coach McGuire follows legendary coaching footsteps. His great-grandfather, T.A. “Tom” Copas was Athletic Director at Phillips University in Enid, where he started one of the first high school basketball tournaments. Coach McGuire’s grandfather, Jack Davison, was one of the most respected high school coaches in Oklahoma and was elected to the Oklahoma Coaches Hall of Fame in 1982. His dad, Mikel Davison, has 465 victories in 32 seasons as a head coach (four of those seasons at Duncan) and recently retired from coaching (2016) after serving two seasons as Coach McGuire’s assistant coach.
In addition to a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, Coach McGuire has a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from East Central University.
