Home Of The Bucks

Welcome to the internet home of the Buckeye High School Varsity Football team of Medina, Ohio, who will begin their 63rd Season of play in 2015. In 2014 they finished their 10th season in the Patriot Athletic Conference by posting a 8-3 overall record and a 5-0 record in Conference play and were Stars Division Champions for the sixth time. They finished 5th in Division III for the OHSAA State Playoffs and drew Bowling Green as an opponent in the first round. The Bobcats got out to an early lead and the Bucks couldn't recover losing by a score of 41-7. They now have scored 2,119 points against the PAC opponents, while giving up 1,108 in 70 Games and own a 53-17-0 conference record.

The 2014 season was the second winning season in the two years under Head Coach Mark Pinzone who took over at the beginning of the 2013 season. The Bucks had previously made OHSAA State Playoff appearances in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2013. Last years appearance was their sixth time.

A new day dawned as the Bucks began turning things around in the 2013 Season. That can be credited to the arrival of Coach Pinzone and the coaching staff he brought aboard to right the ship and get the Bucks back to the winning ways they had become accustomed to durning the early part of the the 2000's. He hit the ground running with not only his high school players but also the Junior High and Youth League players. He has the players buying into the system and has everyone excited about Buckeye Football at all of the levels!

Go Bucks! Buckeye Pride!!

Here is the link to Joe Eitel's High School site. He ranks all the teams in their respective divisions. The Bucks are in Division III Region 8 for the 2013 Season. Click on the highlighted text to go to that page. He does a weekly update every Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Not enough football on Fridays? Try Yappi or J.J. Huddle for high school football and all other sports. The Ohio Helmet project is a site that is trying to create and post the helmet graphics of all 711 high schools in the state of Ohio. We submitted the Bucks helmet pictures in 2002 and an actual decal in 2006. Kevin did our helmets with and without the stripes during those season. When we abandoned the "buck" graphic in 2012 and went with those antlers he tried to copy it but needs a decal for that, if someone has a decal please let me know. First thing in August I sent him the Bucks script graphic and we have the newest helmet design. These helmet graphics have been used on stat and record pages.

Thanks go out to Kevin Dudley, the man behind the project, who has been working hard on this site. It is interesting to look through so surf by and check out. We have also helped out by submitting Wellington, Highland, Avon, and Vermilion helmet pictures. THis season I submitted Keystone, Firelands and Midview along with a old Cloverleaf helmet picture. The Patriot Athletic Conference has a page on the site, so take a look to see what type of protective headwear all the other teams in the state are wearing by clicking on their link!
