 Welcome To Buck Country!

Welcome to the internet home of the Buckeye High School Varsity Football team of Medina, Ohio, who completed their 65th Season of play in 2017. They had another great campaign going 10-0 in the regular season for only the 3rd time in Bucks Football History. They made their 5th straight appearance in the OHSAA Playoffs, but again bowed out in the first round losing to the 27-14 to the visiting Tallmadge Blue Devils. As of the end of 2017 they have scored 3,154 points against the PAC12 opponents, while giving up 1,252 in 91 Games owning a 74-17-0 conference record.

The 2017 season was the 1st season under Head Coach Greg Dennison who came to the Bucks in the off season when former Head Coach Mark Pinzone took the Head Coach job at Brunswick. The Bucks also claimed their 5th straight PAC12 Stars Division Crown, which is their 9th overall. It was also the 5th straight year of qualifying for the OHSAA Football Playoff. The Bucks have now qualified for the State Playoffs in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Former Head Coach Pinzone had a 33-10 record in his 4 years at the helm and left the team in great shape for Coach Dennison.

Coach Dennison is the 16th Head Coach in Bucks History. He was an assistant coach during 2016 for the Brunswick Blue Devils. Prior to that he led the Wadsworth Grizzles for 21 Seasons from 1995-2015. His accomplishents there have him in the company of some of the greatest coaches in Medina County history. He compiled a 148-77-0 recored and led the Grizzles to Suburban League Titles in 1996, 2007 and 2009 along with three regional final appearances in 1999, 2003 and 2011. His 10-1 record this season gives him a 158-78 record which is good for 2nd All Time in Medina County behind Black River's Al Young.

Go Bucks! Buckeye Pride!!
