Thanks for your dedication Dana and we wish you well with Cheerleading at the college level, and also in your education!

Defiance College Helmet

A couple of our former players are playing college football this season. Dustin Supan is a Defensive Back at Defiance College. He is a Junior this year and had a pretty good season last year for the Yellow Jackets with 34 tackles and 2 interceptions. They finished 5-5 last season and will open this year on September 6 against Muskingum College. Dustin played on the Jaguars Varsity squads of 1999 and 2000 and was one of the reasons they won back to back championships those years.

Down at West Liberty State College in West Virginia Josh Varney begins his Freshman year of College as a member of the Hilltoppers Football team. Josh played with the Jaguars JV in 1998 & 1999, he then moved to the Jets Varsity and played with them in 2000 & 2001. He was the 1st receipient of the 'Golden Jet' award in 2000, and coincidently he picked up the 'Golden Buck' Award last season with as a senior with the Bucks.

Justin is pictured above wearing #19 the same number he wore with the Jaguars,  although he wore #20 with the Bucks. Josh is wearing #60 as he did with the Jaguars JV in 1998 (His younger brother Keegan is wearing it on the Jags Pee Wee squad). We wish both of these young men good luck during their upcoming season and also in the classroom.

<center>2008 Medina Kick Off Classic</center>

Posted by Dave Rea at Aug 24, 2008 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The Jaguars and Jets made their tournament debut in Medina today and did themselves proud. The Jets won their two games, Saturday they beat the Medina Broncos 6-0. In perusing the Broncos website we discovered in an article at the bottom of the page that the Broncos had won 28 consecutive games dating back to the first game of the 2006 season. So that is a bit of a feather in the hat of the young Jets who have 18 playes, 6 of whom never played football before this season and 3 who just moved up from JV last year. Way to go Jets! Then today they played the Medina Predators and won that game 12-0.

The Jaguars played back to back games on Saturday night winning the first game against the Lorain Steelers 7-0, and taking the second game 6-0 over the Hamilton Wentworth Panthers. Those games were numbers 99 and 100 in Jaguar Varsity history. Both the wins came on interception returns as they played a very stingy defense.

That set up another Buckeye Showdown with the #5 Seeded Jets and #6 Seeded Jags met last night at 6:00PM. The Jags came out on top 12-0, but both teams have the right to be proud of their first tournament appearances, they each won two games against teams they knew nothing about and found out they could play win if they played the entire game and never let down.

There were four more undefeated teams who  scored more points than that Jets and Jags did so they are ranked higher and have a chance to finish either as #1 or as #2. You can visit our hosts by clicking Medina Bees Youth Football.

The Jaguars and Jets got the 2008 Season underway at Buckeye last night. The opener went to the Jags 26-0, breaking the Jets 2 game win streak over them. Want more numbers? This was the 9th meeting of the two teams with the Jags now holding a 5-4 edge in the series. They won the first 3 before the Jets prevailed twice during 2003 enroute to their Championship. Last season the Jets won the opener 27-0. 

This was the 60th Varsity game for the Jets and they now have a 36-24-0 record. The Jags have a 46-52-0 record and will play their 100th Varsity contest Saturday night against the Hamilton Wentworth Panthers from Canada. That's alot of Varsity games by these two teams over the last 13 Seasons of Buckeye Youth Football.

We are proud of Varsity Teams and all our other players and cheerleaders not only from this season but from all the seasons past. This weekend the JV Squads will get started and then on the 30th all the Pee Wee and Flag begin their seasons, so come out to the fields and watch some football!

2003 Jaguars Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Nov 30, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The 2003 season marked the 5th consecutive year that the Jaguars made the playoffs. But as was the case in 2002 they bowed out in the first round. They posted a 5-3 record for season number 8. The 2004 season brings the promise that they will return several players and reload for another run at trying to attain their 3rd Championship.

The Coaching staff remained the same, some coaches just changed squads. Lee Mercer and Tom Ward, said goodbye to Chuck Magle who moved over to take over the JV Head Coaching job, and welcomed Andy Wuensch and Gary Karr up from the JV ranks to Varsity.

This season saw the first change in Head Coaches, as Dave Rea stepped down prior to the playoffs, and Lee Mercer assumed the role. Coach Rea will make a move to director as Buckeye Youth Football incorporates.

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 6th season.
