2002 Jets Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Mar 13, 2007 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
The Jets took the big leap in 2002 as they went 5-3 and made it to the BYF Championship Game, finishing 2nd to the League Champion Chargers. This was the first season for Head Coach Steve Watkins, as he moved from the helm of the JV Squad to the Varsity. Cleatus Varney remained with the team as an assistant, and along with Charlie Shaw, the three of them got the Jets to click on all cylinders most games.

With their appetite wetted for for another run to the Championship they will look forward to 2003. They should return many starters from 2002, and fill the squad out with experienced JV players moving up.

The Jets Cheerleadering Squads did a great job of adding their support at all levels under 3rd year Head Coach Kim Watkins.

2001 Jaguars Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Mar 8, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The 2001 season saw the Jags reach the playoffs for the third consecutive year, however they bowed out in the first round with a loss to Hudson. The finished 4-4 in this rebuilding year, after being the Champs the previous 2 years. The Coaching staff remained pretty much in tact with only Scott Hendricks leaving due to work commitments.

Assistant Coach Lee Mercer, Ken Pekarek, and Bob Morcom, and Tom Ward (who moved up from his previous Head JV Coach position) all worked hard to blend this new group of players into a team. They look forward to 2002 and another chance to take a run at a championship.

The Jag Cheer Squads exploded in numbers as well and they all had a very fine year under Head Cheer Coach Wren Roskey.

2001 Jets Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Mar 7, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The Jets took some more steps forward in 2001, as Cleatus Varney took over as Head Coach. They finished 2-6 which was one more win than they had the year before, but don't let that record fool you as the Jets have won 3 games in their first 2 seasons, where the Jags did not win a game till their 3rd season.

With the departure of Coach Supan to the 8th grade program, Coach Varney had assistance from Steve Watkins, who moved up to Varsity from JV Head Coach, and from Coach Dave Weiland. The kids played much better and were only a play here and there from having 3 or 4 wins under their belts during this season. The Jets will be looking forward to season number 3, as Coach Watkins takes over as Head Coach, and they continue taking steps forward to winning their 1st BYF Championship.

The Jets Cheerleadering Squads also filled out this season and they did a great job under 2nd year Head Coach Kim Watkins.

2001 Buccaneers Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Mar 7, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
In 2001 Buckeye Youth Football welcomed their 3rd team the Buccaneers. They were only able to field a JV squad but it was still a nice expansion as we grew to over 190 children in football and cheerleading.

Once again Coach Rea was designated the Head Coach, but the work was done by JV Head Coach Scot Asvestas, who will become the Head Coach in 2002. He got some good help from Steve Hunt, Charlie Shaw, and Jeff Mennell.

The kids did real well out of the chute, they learned about the game and had fun playing it. JV Cheer Coach Kelly Hunt did a great job with her girls too. We are hoping there will be an expansion to a Varsity team the near future.

1998 Season

Posted by Dave Rea at Feb 15, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
This season brought Midview into the league and with the birth of the Redskins, who the Jags would latter learn to love to beat! The turnout for 1998 was a little bit off as far as number of players, but we scrapped enough to fill the squads out, and the players that came out, came out to play!
Coach Lee Mercer arrived on the scene and we recorded our first win in the season opener on our home field by thumping the Browns 36-12. Lee sold the players on the ideas if "TEAM" and "BUCKEYE PRIDE". We finished at 2-5 overall, as we won the last game of the season, and the seed was planted for the Jags to earn respect from the other squads in the BYF.

The 1998 season also saw the arrival of Wren Roskey as the Jags Head Cheer Coach. Her coming on board coupled with Coach Mercer's arrival, would prove to be excellent for the future as the 1999 and 2000 seasons would prove.

In 1998 the Jags were staying in all the games, and always giving themselves a chance to win. We took several steps forward, and having learned to walk, these kids were ready to run. That season we solidified our place in the Buckeye Football family and gained the support of then Buckeye Bucks Head Coach Jeff Ladner.
