News and Announcements
The Jaguars Varsity defeated the Warrensville Cowboys to become the 2009 Kick Off Classic Champions! There were 9 teams in the Varsity 12 & Under pool. The Jags won their first two games and went into the playoffs ranked #2, with the Cowboys ranked #1. They defeated the CCYF Falcons 19-6 to advance to the Championship Game where they defeated the Cowboys 7-6 to win the Championship.
This marks the 2nd year that Buckeye has participated in the tournament, last season the Jags and Jets Varsity went, this season their respective JV Squads also went giving us 4 teams representing Buckeye. The Jaguars won all 3 of the games they played last season but didn't get to the playoff rounds due to the criteria used to rank the teams. They made up for it this year, they now have a 7-0 record in the tournament, scoring 89 points while giving up only 25 and posting 3 shutouts.
Congratulations to Head Coach Paul Fowler, Assistant Coaches Mike Arena, Chris Calta and Bryan Willis and all the Jaguars Varsity players. You played hard, had a great experience and showed Buckeye Pride!
2009 Medina Kick Off Classic
In the championship game we faced the Medina Predators and we fell 22-6 and brought home second place. Our players played very well for only having two practices prior to the tournament. Overall it was great to see how well these kids pulled together and played as a team and never gave up or backed down!
I would like to thank the following players and their parents for their participation:
Adam Fauver, Zakary Fowler, Eric Keller, Jaret Lowry, Justin Lowry, Jonathan Neel, Garret Rivett and Zachary Schnepp.
The JV Squad did a bit of a reversal by posting a 2-6 mark as opposed to the 6-2 mark they had finished with in 2007. Coach Calta was pleased with their progress the players made as the season went on since there were some new faces on the squad. The biggest obstacle in the JV Division was scheduling and the strength of some of the Strongsville team.The new Pee Wee Squad had it's struggles as did the other two BYFA squads since the rosters were created with 14 players. The division overall was a success but changes will be made in 2008 to beef up squad size and get the teams headed in a more learning that 'winning' attitude. They were coached by Head Coach Dave Chaney and Assistants Greg Thomas and Kirk Vozar.
Stacey Stoll completed her 3rd season as Bucs Head Cheer Coach by coaching the Pee Wee Cheer Squad and Kathe Kriz coached the JV Squad.
The 2008 Season was the final season for the Buccaneers. After creation of the Pee Wee Division and the numbers that we had over the last 3 to 4 seasons the decision was made to dissolve the Bucs and draft the players onto the Jaguars and Jets Squads and continue on with just 2 teams. The Bucs had a good run in their 8 seasons of existance.
The Bucks were coached by Head Coach Dave Yorko. The Bucks Cheer Squad was coached by Sheila Schnepp and Janet Clark.
