News and Announcements
Head Coach Scot Asvestas returned, along with Varsity assistants Scott Gilbert and Steve Hunt, keeping the continuity in the coaching staff for these young players. He also welcomed in Chris Calta as Head JV Coach. Chris had the assistance of Austin Eggert who was in his 3rd season, and another newcomer Rich Metheney. These players have learned football fundamentals and having fun.
Sandy Thomas took over as JV Cheer Coach. They Bucs were not able to field a Varsity Cheer Squad this season, but hopefully that will change in 2005. All in all 2004 was a fine year for the Buccaneers.
Congratulations to Head Coach Steve Watkins, Coaches Mike Vogt and Rick Monroe and the entire Jets Varsity Squad on an excellent season as they finished 10-1. You showed pride and determination all season and Buckeye Football is proud of you!
That left the Directors trying to fill a void in the coaching staff. Coach Tom Hugney stepped forward and said he would take the helm for the 2005 season since his son T.J. would be in his final season of play with the Jags. The Jaguars struggled all season since they had lost not only 75% of their coaching staff, but many of the players who had lots of years in the system. To their credit they never quit all season and finished at 1-7 with their lone win coming against the Saints.
The Jags JV squad got a new Head Coach in Tim Roskey, as he took over from Doug Peyton. The JV went back to a non score keeping division for the 2005 Season and the Jags struggled mostly due to Buckeye's JV teams being smaller in stature than the Brunswick teams.
The Flag Squad was coached by Adam and Theresa Barrington and Travis McCourt. The Jaguars only fielded a JV Cheer Squad and they were coached by Head Cheer Coach Wren Roskey, who completed her 8th season and second as BYFA Cheer Coordinator.
Head Coach Scot Asvestas got two new Varsity Assistants in Kevin Toler and Jeff Thayer. He had a good hold over of the older players from the 2004 team and picked up some player who brought JV experience with them. JV Head Coach Chris Calta worked his second season on the sidelines with JV Asistant Rich Metherney and the Bucs JV worked on becoming better players as they looked to move up to Varsity in the future.
The season also saw the formation of the Buccaneers first Flag squad. Neal Stacey was the first coach and he had Don Van Drei and Tim England as they put 11 players out on the field to get their first taste of Buccaneer Football.
Anita Tomak was the new JV Cheer Coach. Again they Bucs were not able to field a Varsity Cheer Squad this season but that will come as growth continues. The Jaguars and Jets experienced the same growth as they developed in the past seasons. The 2005 season was all and all a pretty good ride for the Bucs.
The JV were under the guidance of Mike Vogt, with help from Mike Cunningham and Tom Akim.
The Jets again had a complete compliment of Cheerleaders with all 3 squads being filled and under the direction of Head Coach Kim Watkins who wrapped up her 6th season as a cheer coach in Buckeye Youth Football.
