2005 Jets Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Oct 18, 2007 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The Jets posted a 4-4 record in 2005 as they continued their streak of 4 consecutive seasons without a losing record. They didn't have quite the potentcy of the two previous editions of the Jets but they were able to compete.  Head Coach Steve Watkins was at the helm for his 4th season as well. He had the help of Mark Carrow and Kraig Ingraham.

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.

On Saturday, August 11th, 2007 Buckeye Youth Football players, cheerleaders, coaches and their families were guests of the Cleveland Browns and Dick's Sporting Goods as they traveled to Cleveland Browns Stadium to watch the Browns and the Chiefs hook up in a preseason game.

Everyone had a great time and BYFA wishes to thank the Browns, Dick's Sporting Goods and Jon Stahl from Dick's for providing the tickets.

2000 Jets Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Aug 5, 2007 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The 2000 season saw us begin a new era, Buckeye Youth Football. No longer were the Jags the only team from Buckeye, the Jets were born. We signed up 140 players and cheerleaders which doubled us from the 1999 season. We had started 2 flag teams in 1999 and renamed the Panthers Flag team the Jets to go with their new Varsity and JV teams.

The 2000 season brought excitement and growing pains, sort of the good with the bad, but we survived and again pushed forward as we had done the first 4 seasons.

Cleatus Varney and Scot Asvestas changed colors as they went over to coach the Jets, we welcomed aboard some new faces, Kim Watkins, the Jets Head Cheer Coach, Steve Watkins, the Jets JV Head Coach, and his brother Scott Watkins, who was a JV Assistant. Kim had been with the Steelers prior to coming over to the Jets.

We even saw father and son go head to head as Jag player Dustin Supan's father Rock became a Jets Varsity Coach. All in all things worked out and the program continued to expand due in part to the continuity of the coaching staff who for the most part were in their 3rd season together.

The Jets got their first win in a home game against the Browns (also the Jags first victim in 1998) and they finished a 1-6. The kids were excited to play and had were eager learners. The Jets got off on the right foot due to the Jaguars having been established, and both staffs worked together as Coach Rea was the Head Coach of both teams. They laid a solid foundation and we expect big things from them in the years to come. We are certain 3 or 4 years down the road the Jets will be champions too!

<center>Jags Former Cheer Coach</center>

Former Jags Cheer Coach Heather Jamison was at the Browns/Chiefs game with BYFA.  She is posing above right with the Browns mascot which made us remember she was seen one other time posing with a mascot.  She was the Jags Varsity Cheer coach back in 1999 and 2000 when they won Back-2-Back BYF Championships.  I guess when you win championships you get to go to Disneyworld.  (We just think she has a thing for people in hot furry costumes). image
