2004 Buccaneers Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Nov 19, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The 2004 season was the 4th year for the Buccaneers, and it also brought forth their 1st Varsity Squad. They return of almost the entire 2003 JV squad that was eligible to move up made the Varsity transition easier, and gave the new squad experience. The foundation for the future remains solid, as the Bucs went 3-5. The 3 wins in their first season was more than either the Jags or Jets could muster in their inaugural seasons. They are off and running now and the 3rd Varsity gives Buckeye Youth Football a big jump to help feed the Junior High and High School football programs.

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.
The Jets Varsity didn't have their season come to the outcome that they wanted it to as they dropped a close game to the Brunswick Jets 15-12 on Saturday night at Steingass Field.  The Jets trailed by one at the half 7-6 and even though the teams exchanged TDs in the second half, the difference was that Brunswick was able to convert a 1 point PAT and a 2 point PAT.

Congratulations to Head Coach Steve Watkins, Coaches Mike Vogt and Rick Monroe and the entire Jets Varsity Squad on an excellent season as they finished 10-1.  You showed pride and determination all season and Buckeye Football is proud of you!

2005 Jaguars Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Oct 18, 2007 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The 2005 Season was a rough one for Jaguars Football.  Head Coach Lee Mercer, and Varsity Assistants Andy Wuensch and Gary Karr called it a career at the end of 2004. Coach Wuensch moved on to coach at the high school level, while Coach Mercer did so for work reasons. 

That left the Directors trying to fill a void in the coaching staff.  Coach Tom Hugney stepped forward and said he would take the helm for the 2005 season since his son T.J. would be in his final season of play with the Jags. The Jaguars struggled all season since they had lost not only 75% of their coaching staff, but many of the players who had lots of years in the system.  To their credit they never quit all season and finished at 1-7 with their lone win coming against the Saints.

The Jags JV squad got a new Head Coach in Tim Roskey, as he took over from Doug Peyton.  The JV went back to a non score keeping division for the 2005 Season and the Jags struggled mostly due to Buckeye's JV teams being smaller in stature than the Brunswick teams.

The Flag Squad was coached by Adam and Theresa Barrington and Travis McCourt. The Jaguars only fielded a JV Cheer Squad and they were coached by Head Cheer Coach Wren Roskey, who completed her 8th season and second as BYFA Cheer Coordinator.

2005 Buccaneers Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Oct 18, 2007 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The 2005 season marked the 5th season of Buccaneer Football. The second edition of the Bucs Varsity made it to the playoffs with a 5-3 mark but were eliminated in the first round. However this was a good showing for a second year team.

Head Coach Scot Asvestas got two new Varsity Assistants in Kevin Toler and Jeff Thayer. He had a good hold over of the older players from the 2004 team and picked up some player who brought JV experience with them.  JV Head Coach Chris Calta worked his second season on the sidelines with JV Asistant Rich Metherney and the Bucs JV worked on becoming better players as they looked to move up to Varsity in the future.

The season also saw the formation of the Buccaneers first Flag squad. Neal Stacey was the first coach and he had Don Van Drei and Tim England as they put 11 players out on the field to get their first taste of Buccaneer Football. 

Anita Tomak was the new JV Cheer Coach. Again they Bucs were not able to field a Varsity Cheer Squad this season but that will come as growth continues. The Jaguars and Jets experienced the same growth as they developed in the past seasons. The 2005 season was all and all a pretty good ride for the Bucs.

2005 Jets Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Oct 18, 2007 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The Jets posted a 4-4 record in 2005 as they continued their streak of 4 consecutive seasons without a losing record. They didn't have quite the potentcy of the two previous editions of the Jets but they were able to compete.  Head Coach Steve Watkins was at the helm for his 4th season as well. He had the help of Mark Carrow and Kraig Ingraham.

The JV were under the guidance of Mike Vogt, with help from Mike Cunningham and Tom Akim.

The Jets again had a complete compliment of Cheerleaders with all 3 squads being filled and under the direction of Head Coach Kim Watkins who wrapped up her 6th season as a cheer coach in Buckeye Youth Football.
