<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.

2003 Jets Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Nov 30, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
After finishing 2nd to the League Champion Chargers in 2002 the Jets were determined to make a return appearance in 2003. Under second year Head Coach Steve Watkins, and a staff that returned intact from the year before, they made a huge statement. They ran the table going 9-0 and won their 1st BYF Championship!

They returned many of their starters from 2002, and filled out the squad with experienced JV players that moved up. Every week they pounded their opponents into submission with a potent offense and a relentless defense that pursued to the ball.

The Jets Cheerleadering Squads did a great job of adding their support as they were there every step of the way rooting the squads on at all levels under 4th year Head Coach Kim Watkins.

2003 Buccaneers Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Nov 30, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The 2003 season was the 3rd campaign for the Buccaneers. They returned many players from the 2002 squad. The foundation for the future, continues to show as they had again had a competitive squad on the field. They are hoping the numbers rise in 2004 to allow the addition of a Buccaneer Varsity.

Head Coach Scot Asvestas returned, along with assistants Scott Gilbert and Austin Eggert, keeping the continuity in the coaching staff for these young players.

These players have learned football fundamentals and having fun. JV Cheer Coach Kelly Hunt returned for her 3rd season of coaching the Cheerleaders. Overall 2003 was another fine year for the Buccaneers.
