2008 Buccaneers Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Jan 27, 2009 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The 2008 Season for the Buccaneers again saw them not be able to field enough players for a Varsity Squad, So they soldiered on with a JV Squad and the newly created Pee Wee Squad. It was the second season for Head Coach Chris Calta. 

The JV Squad did a bit of a reversal by posting a 2-6 mark as opposed to the 6-2 mark they had finished with in 2007. Coach Calta was pleased with their progress the players made as the season went on since there were some new faces on the squad. The biggest obstacle in the JV Division was scheduling and the strength of some of the Strongsville team. 

The new Pee Wee Squad had it's struggles as did the other two BYFA squads since the rosters were created with 14 players. The division overall was a success but changes will be made in 2008 to beef up squad size and get the teams headed in a more learning that 'winning' attitude. They were coached by  Head Coach Dave Chaney and Assistants Greg Thomas and Kirk Vozar.

Stacey Stoll completed her 3rd season as Bucs Head Cheer Coach by coaching the Pee Wee Cheer Squad and Kathe Kriz coached the JV Squad.

The 2008 Season was the final season for the Buccaneers. After creation of the Pee Wee Division and the numbers that we had over the last 3 to 4 seasons the decision was made to dissolve the Bucs and draft the players onto the Jaguars and Jets Squads and continue on with just 2 teams. The Bucs had a good run in their 8 seasons of existance.

2008 Jaguars Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Jan 27, 2009 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The 2008 season of Jaguar football saw the Varsity put up their biggest win total ever and also play the most games ever. They went 9-1 in the regular season, 12-1 overall, and made the playoffs for the 8th time and their 4th appearance in the Championship game losing by a score of 21-0 to the Brunswick Jets. They also had tournament action for the first time as they appeared in the Medina Kick Off Classic, going 3-0, but not making the final tier due to the tie breakers used.

Paul Fowler took over as interim Head Coach with the departure of Dave Kargle and he teamed with former Jaguar player Mike Arena as coached the players to a pretty good offensive and defensive performance. Coach Arena's defense put up 10 shutouts.

The JV Squad struggled to a 3-5 record during the season but finished the season playing better football than they did at the beginning which is the goal of all the teams every year. Third year Coach Eric Keller took over as JV Head Coach with Assistants Travis McCourt, Paul Schnepp, Greg Cook and Doug Manross. 

The Jags Pee Wee Squad had a good season under 1st year Head Coach Jay Lowry and Assistants Carl Davis and Cleatus Varney.

Bille Conrad coached the Jags JV Cheer Squad and Sheila Schnepp was the Pee Wee Cheer Coach.
