Welcome to the internet home of the Buckeye High School Varsity Football team of Medina, Ohio, who completed their 63rd Season during 2015. They ran the table posting a 10-0 record. The last time that happened was in the 2005 season and is only the second time in Bucks history. They made their 7th appearance in the OHSAA Playoffs, but again bowed out in the first round losing to the West Geauga Wolverines 35-28 in a Triple Over Time thriller! As of the end of the 2015 season they have scored 2,439 points against the PAC12 opponents, while giving up 1,137 in 77 Games owning a 60-17-0 conference record.

The 2015 season was the 3rd straight winning season for 3rd year Head Coach Mark Pinzone who came to the Bucks prior to the 2013 season. They also clinched their 3rd straight PAC12 Stars Division Crown, their 7th overall. In addition the Bucks 3rd straight year of qualifying for the playoffs. Buckeye previously qualified for the OHSAA State Playoffs in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2013 and 2014.

Coach Mark Pinzone and the Bucks coaching staff have gotten not only the high school players buying into the system the three years he has been here, but the junior high and youth players as well. They are excited about Buckeye Football at all levels!!
