News and Announcements
The JV Squad did take up the slack as their division became competative again and they were able to complete the regular season with a 9-0 mark. The 3rd time a BYFA squad had gone undefeated in regular season play. They were not able to clinch the Championship as they dropped the last game to the Brunswick Jets by the difference of an extra point 7-6.
Head Coach Steve Watkins dropped back and had some fun as he guided the Flag team all season.
The Jets fielded JV and Flag Cheerleaders and were coached by Kim Watkins who finished her coaching after 7 seasons in Buckeye Youth Football.
All in all it was a good season for the Varsity after not fielding a team in 2006. The JV squad had a bit of a rough go as they went 3-5 under new JV Head Coach Dan Kohler who took over for Mike Vogt who moved up to the Varsity level.
The Flag team was under the direction of Art Clark, his wife Janet coached the Flag Cheer Squad and Jody Theis was the JV Cheer Coach.
They lost many of their players from 2003, however they filled out the squad with experienced JV and draft picks. They weren't the dominant squad they were in 2003, but they still had a good season and were in the hunt until the last week of the season. They finished at 5-3 and chalked up another winning season in the books.
They were again coached by Head Coach Steve Watkins and Assistants Mark Carrow and Scott Watkins.
The Jets Cheerleaders added their support to their players as they again showed much enthuisasm! Head Coach Kim Watkins completed her 5th Season with the Jets girls.
The Coaching staff remained the same, some coaches just changed squads. Lee Mercer, in his first full year as Head Coach, Andy Wuensch, and Tom Hugney did the Varsity duties with Gary Karr helping on game days. Chuck Magle left the Head JV Coaching job, and he was replaced by Doug Peyton, who got help from Tim Roskey and Joe Spence.
The Jaguar Cheer Squads again provided on field support and had their usual standard of excellence under Head Cheer Coach Wren Roskey, who completed her 7th season and first as BYFA Cheer Coordinator.
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.
