News and Announcements

In our opinion, one of the reasons that Buckeye Youth Football has been so successful is due to the experience and continuity of the coaching staff. We have a group of people that enjoy working together, teach the players and cheerleaders, and like what they are doing, while continuing to return year after year. Pictured above is the 2002 Buckeye Youth Football Staff. The Jets JV Staff and a couple others are missing, but this was taken during Picture night for the players and cheerleaders.

When you couple all that returning coaching experience together with the Coaches coming into their second seasons, there is 67 years of youth football coaching experience here! We are proud of that and we thank all our coaches for their continuing service and dedication to this football program.

For over 40 years in Valley City the Valley City Chamber of Commerce has held the annual Frog Jump. Patterned after the Mark Twain story "The Jumping Frog of Calevaras County". This year's Grand Champion, with a jump of 17 feet, was a frog named "Fat" who's "jockey" was Kayla Mason. Kayla is in her 3rd year with the Jags, and is playing JV this season.

Congratulations Kayla! Great Job!
Pictured above is our newest Buccaneer, and the newest addition to the Asvestas family, Jadon Claire. Bucs' Coach Scot Asvestas, wife Stacey, along with Corey & Cayla welcomed her on August 22, 2002 at 3:50AM. She is the tiniest Buc too, weighing in at 5 pounds, 2 ounces.

Congratulations and welcome to Buckeye Youth Football Jadon! We are now two for two, as last season Jets' Coach Varney and his wife Cheryl had a new son Keegan. We wish him a Happy belated birthday! He was born on the first day of practice in 2001.

Coach Varney brought Cheryl and Keegan to practice to visit. He was born August 13, 2001 and is up to a whooping 9 pounds 3 ounces already. Mom is looking and feeling great too. We are not sure if Keegan was impressed as he watched the Varsity Jets, since he spent most of the time sleeping on Coach Rea's stomach (We think he thought it was a waterbed). He had plenty of visitor's and we are sure he will make many appearances this season. imageimage
