Lake Erie Youth Football League Fall 2020 K-6 Season Postponed to Spring 2021

Buckeye Youth Football Families,

As we continue to learn, plans can be modified quickly in this global pandemic. LEYFL held an emergency meeting on Friday, July 17th to discuss the latest developments with the Ohio Governors Responsible Restart with sports requirements. We have confirmed the July 7th Governors orders for contact sports have been extended to July 22nd. Please see the links below. Among other requirements athletes and team staff members must receive a negative COVID-19 test result before traveling to each competition.

The vast majority of LEYFL communities do not have the resources to safely organize Youth Football under these requirements. Most communities also need adequate time to prepare for the season by organizing equipment purchases, ensuring municipal field use, etc. Waiting for further guidance on or after July 22nd is not an option for all. In a nearly unanimous community decision, LEYFL voted to postpone the Fall 2020 Youth Football season until Spring 2021.

Ideally our pandemic situation greatly improves by the Spring. Initial plans call for a March to May 2021 season. We understand the conflicts with other Spring sports and activities that this introduces but feel this is the best path forward. Registration forms submitted for the Fall will be kept for use in the Spring but can be returned or destroyed upon request. Physicals recently completed for grades 3-6 last one calendar year and can also be used for Spring football. Flag players grades K-2 do not require physicals. There are then further plans to have a traditional Fall 2021 LEYFL season.

Buckeye Youth Football is investigating if non-contact football skill development practices/camps can still be held in the Fall. These would be for the surrounding Buckeye Community only and meet the Ohio non-contact sports requirements. BYFA requires further guidance from Buckeye Schools and will need to account for unknown Ohio requirement updates. Buckeye High School continues to move forward as if sports will begin on August 1st and our practices/camps could potentially start soon after. We will update our families as soon as possible by email, Facebook and our website buckeyeyouthfootball.com.

Thank you for your understanding and more information to come in the near future.

2006 Buccaneers Season

Posted by Dave Rea on Nov 24 2007 at 04:00PM PST in 2018 Season
The 2006 Season saw the Bucs Varsity struggle to a 3-5 seaon. They lost players from the 2005 squad and were working to rebuild their team. 

Head Coach Scot Asvestas again got two new Varsity Assistants in Rich Metheney, who moved up from JV and Rick Monroe who came over from the Jets with his sone when the Jets did not field a Varsity Squad.  JV Head Coach Chris Calta coached the Bucs to a 4-4 finish with the help of new coaches Jeff Miller and Bill Ross.

The 2nd season of Buccaneers Flag saw new Head Coach Carl Strimple put a good squad on the field with help from Dave Chaney and Tim England. 

Stacey Stoll became the new Cheer Coach and she brought a fresh enthusiasm to the Buccaneers. They fielded only a JV Squad but they did show plenty of spirit.
