<center>Former Jags Playing College Ball</center>

Posted by Dave Rea at Oct 11, 2004 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
Every year we talk to the youth players about doing their best on the field and in the classrooom. We want them to show pride, heart, and discipline and aspire to be a Buckeye Buck and then go on to college. We have 3 former Jags at that level during the 2004 Season. Buckeye Youth Football is proud of them and wants to recognize their efforts!

In the spring of 2004 Adam Franz (Jags '96 & '97)signed a national letter of intent to play football at the NCCA Division II level for the
Tiffin Dragons this fall after graduating from Buckeye last June. Tiffin improved from a dismal 2-8 season in 2002, to finish 6-5 last season. Adam, a 6'3" and 240 pound lineman, helped the Bucks to their first 2 appearances in the state playoffs in 2002 and 2003. He was an All Mohican Area Conference selection during the 2003 season, along with being named to the All MAC Academic Team and Co-Most Improved Player for the Bucks. He is a Forensic Psychology major and wants to go to the FBI after graduation. Congratulations and Good Luck in your college career Adam!

Dan and Darren Cereshko (Both Jags in 1996) pictured below, opted to attend
Baldwin Wallace and are playing Division III football for the Yellow Jackets. BW finished 10-2 and made it to the 2nd round of the NCAA Division III playoffs in 2003. Dan, a 5'11" 170 QB, and Darren, a 5'11" 210 WR/DB, together hold most of the all time passing and receiving records at Buckeye that they set during the 2001 & 2002 Sesaons. Dan was the 2003 Iron Antler Award winner for the Bucks. Darren was a Division III All Ohio Player and Defensive Player of the Year in 2002. Congratulations and Good Luck in your careers Dan & Darren! Their Uncle Ron Brant who is pictured with them below is the All Time leading scorer and rusher at Buckeye, as well as holding several other rushing records. imageimage

Two more former Jags have made a choice to play football in college. Dan and Darren Cereshko have both opted to attend Baldwin Wallace College, and will play Division III football for the Yellow Jackets next season. Both Cereshkos, played in 1996 with the very first squads. Dan, a 5'11" 170 QB/DB, and Darren, a 5'11" 170 WR/DB, together broke most of the passing and receiving records at Buckeye during the 2002 & 2003 Sesaons. Dan was the Golden Buck Award Winner in 2003 and Darren was Ohio Division III Defensive Player of the Year in 2002. Congratulations and Good Luck with the Yellow Jackets Dan & Darren!

Earlier in the year former Jaguar player Adam Franz has signed a national letter of intent to play football at the Division II level for the
Tiffin Dragons next season after graduation from Buckeye. Adam, 6'3" and 240 pounds, played for the Jaguars in 1997.

During high school he was in the band as a freshmen and sophomore and returned to football as a Junior. His excellent line play helped the Bucks to their first appearances in the state playoffs in 2002 and 2003. He was an All Mohican Area Conference selection this season, along with being named to the All MAC Academic Team and Co-Most Improved Player. Congratulations and Good Luck Adam!

<center>Jets Sign Added To The Fence</center>

Posted by Dave Rea at Nov 2, 2003 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )

The Jets 2003 BYF Championship sign has been placed on the fence outside Edwin Steingass Field at Buckeye. It joins the sign for the Jags 2 Championships. Our goal? More Buckeye wins, more signs, we have plenty of fence space.

Pictured above are Head Coach Steve Watkins and Coach Mark Carrow along with the returning Varsity Jets players from last year who want to defend that title. Below are the returning Varsity Cheerleaders from last year's squad. They now become the team to beat as the season opens next weekend. Up first for the Jets will be the CCYF Vikings.

Way to go Jets, Buckeye Youth Football is proud of you!

Go Jets! Buckeye Pride!

In our opinion, one of the reasons that Buckeye Youth Football has been so successful is due to the experience and continuity of the coaching staff. We have a group of people that enjoy working together, teach the players and cheerleaders, and like what they are doing, while continuing to return year after year. Pictured above is the 2002 Buckeye Youth Football Staff. The Jets JV Staff and a couple others are missing, but this was taken during Picture night for the players and cheerleaders.

When you couple all that returning coaching experience together with the Coaches coming into their second seasons, there is 67 years of youth football coaching experience here! We are proud of that and we thank all our coaches for their continuing service and dedication to this football program.
