Respect All!.....Fear None!!.....Buckeye Pride!!!

This site is the internet home of the Jaguars and Jets who represent the Buckeye Youth Football Association, Inc.(BYFA). We have steadily been building a base of players, cheerleaders, coaches and parents know as "BYFA Nation". Our players and cheerleaders are drawn from the Buckeye Local School District which is located in Medina County, Ohio. We are in our 19th season of Buckeye Youth Football. Conditioning began on July 29th at Buckeye High School and the season opener was August 23rd in Brunswick.

We started with one team, the Jaguars, who began play in 1996. The Jets were added in 2000, and the Buccaneers joined us in the 2001 season. The 2008 Season saw the creation of the Pee Wee Division for 7 and 8 year olds, and the downsizing of the JV Division to contain only 9 and 10 year olds and the Varsity becoming a 11, 12 and 13 year old division. The Buccanneers were dissolved at the end of that season in order to strengthen the rosters in all divisions.

Since the 1999 Season Buckeye Varsity teams have made 12 appearances in the Championship Game, 7 by the Jaguars and 5 by the Jets. The Jags claimed Championships in 1999, 2000 & 2009, and the Jets were Champs in 2003, 2010 & 2012. The Buckeye JV teams have made 5 appearances in the Championship game, 1 by the Jaguars and 4 by the Jets. The Jags JV claimed the Championship in 2009, while the Jets JV continue to work hard to reach that goal.

We have been committed to building a successful program that helps Buckeye Bucks high school program build a winning tradition. The Bucks have made 5 State Playoff appearances in the last 10 years. Over the first 18 years there were over 525 different players, 250 cheerleaders and 100 coaches involved with Buckeye Youth Football. We feel the program has gotten better every year. We grew from 38 kids our first season in 1996, to 208 in the 2014 season.

Our website has a page for each of the football and cheer squads. Feel free to click on any of the menu items above and explore the team sites, rosters, pictures, schedules, history, etc. Updates are done to the pages as we get new information, click on the "Like' Button at upper left of the menu and you can subscribe to this page and click on the "Facebook" tab in the menu to check out our page too! Thanks for dropping by! Buckeye Pride!!

Heads Up Logo
Heads Up Football

Buckeye Youth Football Association will continue their partnership with USA Football and the NFL in their 'Heads Up' Program. The Heads Up program is four pronged in its delivery of these major items Education & Certification, Concussion Awareness, Equipment Fitting and Heads Up Tackling. You will be hearing more and more about this as we get closer to the season. Parents will get information and a clinic on these items just as our coaches and players will get. Eric Keller is the Player Safety Coach for our organization and will be conducting clinics for our coaches and parents after they have finished their training with USA. Eric will be going to the Browns Training Facility for his training with the USA instructors.

All of our Coaches are required to have Concussion Awarness training as mandated by the State of Ohio and USA Football. They must also become members of USA Football and complete the basic training course for Flag or Tackle Football. They must all be background checked which we have been doing for several years. We will also make sure that the coaches are aware of how to properly fit helmets and shoulder pads.

All parents will be getting a clinic on the Heads Up program at the beginning of the season we will let you know when the date is settled on. That clinics will be given by Eric Keller. In the mean time you can go on the USA Football site and get familiar with the 'Heads Up' program by clicking on the link.
