Lake Erie Youth Football League Fall 2020 K-6 Season Postponed to Spring 2021

Buckeye Youth Football Families,

As we continue to learn, plans can be modified quickly in this global pandemic. LEYFL held an emergency meeting on Friday, July 17th to discuss the latest developments with the Ohio Governors Responsible Restart with sports requirements. We have confirmed the July 7th Governors orders for contact sports have been extended to July 22nd. Please see the links below. Among other requirements athletes and team staff members must receive a negative COVID-19 test result before traveling to each competition.

The vast majority of LEYFL communities do not have the resources to safely organize Youth Football under these requirements. Most communities also need adequate time to prepare for the season by organizing equipment purchases, ensuring municipal field use, etc. Waiting for further guidance on or after July 22nd is not an option for all. In a nearly unanimous community decision, LEYFL voted to postpone the Fall 2020 Youth Football season until Spring 2021.

Ideally our pandemic situation greatly improves by the Spring. Initial plans call for a March to May 2021 season. We understand the conflicts with other Spring sports and activities that this introduces but feel this is the best path forward. Registration forms submitted for the Fall will be kept for use in the Spring but can be returned or destroyed upon request. Physicals recently completed for grades 3-6 last one calendar year and can also be used for Spring football. Flag players grades K-2 do not require physicals. There are then further plans to have a traditional Fall 2021 LEYFL season.

Buckeye Youth Football is investigating if non-contact football skill development practices/camps can still be held in the Fall. These would be for the surrounding Buckeye Community only and meet the Ohio non-contact sports requirements. BYFA requires further guidance from Buckeye Schools and will need to account for unknown Ohio requirement updates. Buckeye High School continues to move forward as if sports will begin on August 1st and our practices/camps could potentially start soon after. We will update our families as soon as possible by email, Facebook and our website buckeyeyouthfootball.com.

Thank you for your understanding and more information to come in the near future.

At Saturday night's 2000 Championship game we had a special guest announcer in the booth to call the play by play. Tony Rizzo from Fox8 Sports came out to do the game at the request of Tim Roskey, husband of Cheer Coach Wren Roskey. Tim is a cameraman at Fox8 and he and Rizzo do the Friday high school highlights as they visit area games aboard the SKYFOX helicopter.

Tony did a great job and the Jaguars would like to thank him for taking time out of his busy schedule to do this for the kids.

We would also like to thank Tim for filming the entire game and agreeing to edit our game films down to a highlight tape for us.

Thanks again Tony and Tim.

On Saturday night, September 29, 2000 the two Buckeye teams in the Brunswick Youth Football League met for the first time ever at Edwards field in Brunswick. The Jags, in their 5th Season, defeated the Jets, in their 1st Season, 22-0 but the game was a hard fought battle on both sides of the ball. The Jets showed that they were competive in just their 3rd game of existance and gave the Jags a fight the entire game. It won't be too far into the future that the Jets come out ahead on the scoreboard in one of these Jags/Jets contests. For the game summary and pictures check both the Jaguars and Jets home pages.

<center>Mission Impossible 2</center>

The theme from "Mission Impossible" is back as the music this year on the web page. As most of you know that music was chosen when the web page was started in August last year, as I thought it was appropriate for our team goal of winning the 1999 Brunswick Youth Football Championship.

Cheer Coach Wren Roskey used the music for the Jag Varsity Cheerleaders halftime routine all year. Best of all was when it was played during the Championship trophy presentation at Edwards Field in November. This is a new season and with it comes 2 new missions.

Mission #1:
For the Jaguars to rebuild by meshing the returning players with the upcoming JV players and stay in the hunt for the BYF 2000 Season Championship.

Mission #2:
Get the new team, the Buckeye Jets,to hit the ground running and bring to them the same principles of "TEAM" and "TOGETHER" that we have instilled in the Jaguars the last 4 years. That will be another reason to be proud of this Buckeye Youth Football program!
