The Jets Varisty posted an even 4-4 record as they were the defending Varsity Champions. They made their 9th playoff appearance and 5th in a row. This was the 12th season at the helm for Head Coach Steve Watkins. He had Assistants Mark Crooks and Andrew Nigh helping to get the squad ready each week. 

The JV Squad hit hard times as they went 1-8 on the season after finishing 10-1 in both of the seasons before. For some reason they just didn't gel and it was a long season. The squad was coached by Head Coach Ryan Sweeney and Assistant Coaches Dave Gerderman and Terry Shrader.

The Pee Wee Squad was again under the direction of Head Coach Scott Marcum and his Assistant Coaches Fred Esposito, Mike Augustine and Craig Wrobleski. This division is 6 years old and has continued to help prepare the youngest players to get up to speed for the Varsity and JV Divisions. They do keep score here but there is no Championship Game.

The Jets Flag Squad is made up of 5 and 6 year olds. They get an introduction to football and hopefully have a lot of fun before moving up the ladder in youth football. The Jets Flag players were under the direction of Head Coach Morgan Dolata and Bob Miller. 

The Jets only fielded 2 Cheer Squads this season as there was no Varsity or Flag Squad. The Jets JV Cheer Squad was under the tutelage of Head Coach Kim Sexton and Assistant Julie Bell. The Pee Wee cheerleaders had Head Coach Nicole McGivern.

The Jets had great support and fund raising from their Team Moms. They were led by Head Team Mom Jess Marcum who did the Pee Wee Squad. The other moms were Audrey Calame and Laura Murray from the Varsity squad, Nicole McGivern from the JV Squad and Megan Augustine who was the Flag Team Mom.

Prior to the 2008 Season when we created the Pee Wee Division the JV squads contained 8, 9 and 10 year olds and were the teams where kids learned the skills they would need to move to the Varsity Division. We kept score and there were winners and losers just no Playoffs or Championship. Then in 2004 when we had three associations playing we decided to institute a JV Championship. 

2004 CCYF Falcons
2005 No Championship
2006 Brunswick Jets
2007 Strongsville Passion
2008 Strongsville Blitz
2009 Buckeye Jaguars
2010 Brunswick Jets
2011 Brunswick Jets

<center>2013 Board Member Changes</center>

Posted by Dave Rea at Mar 19, 2013 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
After 15 years as a Cheer Coach/Cheer Coordinator/Director with Buckeye Youth Football Wren Roskey has decided it's time to step aside. She began as the Jaguars Cheer Coach back when we had just one team back in 1998. She did an excellent job with those girls and would make those squads the best in the old Brunswick Youth Football that we were a part of until 2004. In 2000 she helped form the Jets Cheer squads as we added the Jets and set them up to parallel the Jags. As we began 2001 we once again expanded adding the Buccaneers to our teams and she oversaw all three teams cheer squads.

During the 2000 season she was elected to the Brunswick Board as Cheer Coordinator so she served both not only our girls but the cheerleaders of all the Brunswick squads too. She held that position until we officially incorporated BYFA in January of 2004 when she became a Director and Cheer Coordinator. 

Wren was also the high school cheer coach and is presently the Junior High cheer coach. She has spent countless hours coaching, working behind the scenes and in general pouring her heart into this organization. She loves working with these girls and enjoys their success in cheerleading and in life. We want to say that we thank you for the 15 years you invested in this program, the pride you took in it and to tell you that we will miss you and we love you. And even though you are moving on to other things in your life you will always be a part of BYFA and always a Jag!

Director Sheila Schnepp will now become the Cheer Coordinator for BYFA and our Equipment Manager, who has been doing that job for 3 seasons, Paul Schnepp has now been brought on as a Director. Eric Keller has also become a Director. Eric has been involved with our fund raising the last 5 years and will continue to direct that aspect.
