Buckeye Team History

Updated 10/30/2012

On this page are some team info and records, and hopefully in the future, team pictures of all 58 Buckeye Bucks teams. The teams are listed by year with a short blurb about them. Click on any given year and you can view more facts, teams info and schedule with scores. After viewing the entire page you should be a Bucks' Football expert!

In the first 60 years Buckeye Teams have gone 319-251-13 for a .547 winning percentage. The 1960's saw the best winning percentage and the 1990's saw the worst. During the period of 1956-1966 Buckeye was Medina County's winningest High School with a 58-35-6 record for a .586%.

From 1953 until until 1956 Buckeye belonged to the Medina County League which also contained Brunswick, Seville, Lodi, Highland, Boston (Pennisula) and Wakeman. The Bucks were Co-Champs with Brunswick in 1953.

The Bucks then joined the newly formed Inland Conference in 1957 along with original members Brookside, Firelands, LaGrange(Keystone), South Amherst, Avon, Columbia and Highland.

The Inland changed over the years, Brookside left after the '69 season and was replaced in 1970 by Lutheran West. Highland left for the Suburban Conference after the 1975 season. That brought Independence in to the League for the 1976 season. South Amherst merged with Firelands after the 1978-79 school year and that brought Brooklyn to the Inland in the 1979 season.

The Conference folded at the end of the 1987 season. The Bucks were IC Champs eight times during the 31 years of its existance, 1960, 1961, 1963, 1965, 1979, 1983, 1984,and 1987.

For the 5 seasons from 1988 through 1992 the Bucks played an Independent schedule and broke even, going 25-25 in that period.

In 1993 they, along with Black River joined the Mohican Area Conference and were there for the last 10 seasons, posting a 17-33 mark with their lone MAC Championship in 2002. The 2003 season was the last for the MAC, which had only 5 members that year as West Holmes bowed out at the conclusion of 2002.

For the duration of 2004 the Bucks were once again Independent and posted a 6-3 record. The 2005-2006 School year brought the newly created Patriot Athletic Conference (PAC). The conference is made up of two 5 team divisions, the Stars Division and the Stripes Division. The Bucks have gone 31-4 in the first five seasons in the PAC, picking up the Stars Division Crown in 2005 by going a perfect 10-0. They added three more crowns in 2007, 2008 & 2009.

The league was formed with teams from 3 different Conferences. Buckeye and Black River from the MAC, Brooklyn, Columbia, and Lutheran West come from the Metropolitan Area Conference, and Brookside, Keystone, Wellington, Oberlin, and Clearview come from the Lorain County Conference. For 2011 the PAC added 2 more teams as Firelands and Fairview joined the conference to make it a 12 team league. Below is the All-Time Record broken down by decade.
