Home Of The Bucks

Welcome to the internet home of the Buckeye High School Varsity Football team of Medina, Ohio, who will embark on their 62nd season in 2014. In 2013 they finished their 9th season in the Patriot Athletic Conference by posting a 6-4 overall record and a 6-1 record in Conference play. They finished 7th in Division III for the OHSAA State Playoffs and drew Willard as an opponent in the first round. The Fliers were just too much for the Bucks and they were eliminated by the score of 62-14. They now have scored 1,809 points against the PAC opponents, while giving up 990 in 63 Games and own a 46-17-0 conference record.

The 2013 season was the first winning season after posting 3 consecutive losing seasons. The Bucks were 8-3 in 2009, and had gone 51-21-0 over that seven season stretch. They made OHSAA State Playoff appearances in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2009 and made their fifth this year.

A new day dawned as the Bucks turned things around in the 2013 Season. That can be credited to their new Head Coach Mark Pinzone and the new 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 his Junior High and Youth League players. He has the players buying into the system and had 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!
