News and Announcements

Our fundraiser this Saturday night Oct-9 is officially at capacity at the Medina VFW and SOLD OUT! Thank you for the great support of the event! It will be a great night but unfortunately there will be no tickets available at the door.

Doors open at 5:00pm with dinner served at 6:00pm. Some large doors and windows will open for airflow so please bring that jacket or sweatshirt. Plenty of spillover parking will be available at the marked next door lot.

To be officially entered in the reverse raffle and the $1000 grand prize your ticket stub MUST be turned in at the door check-in. The ticket holder does not need to be present but someone must turn it in and be a representative for it. ALL REVERSE RAFFLE TICKETS MUST BE TURNED IN BY 6:30PM! Raffle pulls for all of our great prizes will begin soon after and go on throughout the night.

As we are approaching the Holiday season Buckeye Youth Football is partnering with the Litchfield UCC Community Cares food drive to help provide Thanksgiving meals for the Medina community. Please see the attached list of the food items needed. Items can be donated at the fundraiser door and for every item (up to 10) you will receive one raffle ticket for a chance to win many of the great prize baskets. Food donations will also be accepted at the Buckeye Youth Fields for Saturday’s home games and at football and cheer practices all next week. Thank you for your help!

Lets have a great end to the regular season Saturday and an even better fundraiser night!


Good luck to all of our Buckeye teams on this last weekend of regular season games Oct-9. The LEYFL single elimination playoffs will start on Oct-16. Semi-final games will be Oct-23 and championships Oct-30.

Great job this season as all 11 Buckeye teams are eyeing playoff qualification and should plan on playing Oct-16. Final game times and locations will not be determined until after the Oct-9 games. Attached though are the playoff seeding matchups per division. Division standings can be found on the LEYFL website at

Good luck this week and Go Bucks!

All Week #1 8/28 Buckeye home games have been relocated to other LEYFL sites due to a Buckeye High School cross country conflict.

Good luck this season to all of our teams! Lets Go Bucks!
