2012 Pride Shirts

Posted by Dave Rea at May 22, 2003 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
Back in 1998 we started helmet award decals for Offensive and Defensive play, the Skull & Crossbones decal and PRIDE shirts. The PRIDE shirts went by the wayside a couple seasons ago but Coach Arena has returned them starting with last week's game against the Brunswick Jets.

The Decals are given under a certain criteria for each game, such as TDs, rushing yards, sacks, fumble recoveries, etc. We have 2 kinds, the Paw Prints and the Skull and Crossbones. The paw prints are for offensive and defensive performance with offense worn on the right side rear of the helmet and defense on the left side rear of the helmet.

The Skull and Crossbones is very hard to earn and is for Positive Football Attitude, such as a Pancake block or an outstanding bonecrushing tackle. They are worn on the front of the helmet. To illustrate how hard they are to get, the only players to ever get more than one in a season were Joe Hon during the 2000 season and Trevor Thome during the 2009 season.

The PRIDE shirt is given to one offensive and one defensive player after each game. The player doesn't have to be the best player on the team, he is the player that particular week in practice and in the game that exhibits leadership and gives 101% of himself to help the team win.

The Golden Jag Award

In 1999 we began awarding the Golden Jag Award on our Varsity Squad. It was patterned after the Golden Buck that is awarded at Buckeye High School each season on the Varsity Football team. It is awarded by the Coaches to the Varsity player who we feel shows the most Pride, Effort, Dedication, and Positive Football Attitude. Below are the yearly winners.

Celebrating Our 2 Championships!

In August we erected a sign on the fence outside of Edwin Steingass Field at Buckeye High School to let everyone know that the Jaguars were league champs in 1999 and 2000. The players and coaches are very proud of that sign and we thank the Board of Education for allowing us to put it there for all to see. image

On November 12th, 2000 at Buckeye High School, the Jaguar Varsity collected their individual trophies for the Back2Back Championship of the 2000 BYF Season.

These young men were a very special group, and they achieved quite a number of things this season and last. The Coachs would all like to say thank you for your effort and dedication and good luck as you move through the Buckeye Football Family in Junior High and High School.
