News and Announcements
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.
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.
Everyone had a great time and BYFA wishes to thank the Browns, Dick's Sporting Goods and Jon Stahl from Dick's for providing the tickets.
The 2000 season brought excitement and growing pains, sort of the good with the bad, but we survived and again pushed forward as we had done the first 4 seasons.
Cleatus Varney and Scot Asvestas changed colors as they went over to coach the Jets, we welcomed aboard some new faces, Kim Watkins, the Jets Head Cheer Coach, Steve Watkins, the Jets JV Head Coach, and his brother Scott Watkins, who was a JV Assistant. Kim had been with the Steelers prior to coming over to the Jets.
We even saw father and son go head to head as Jag player Dustin Supan's father Rock became a Jets Varsity Coach. All in all things worked out and the program continued to expand due in part to the continuity of the coaching staff who for the most part were in their 3rd season together.
The Jets got their first win in a home game against the Browns (also the Jags first victim in 1998) and they finished a 1-6. The kids were excited to play and had were eager learners. The Jets got off on the right foot due to the Jaguars having been established, and both staffs worked together as Coach Rea was the Head Coach of both teams. They laid a solid foundation and we expect big things from them in the years to come. We are certain 3 or 4 years down the road the Jets will be champions too!
