Starting the 26th season with five football teams and a full roster of spirited and eager cheerleaders, the East Bay Buccaneers Youth Football and Cheerleading organization kicked off its fall program befitting the organization.
The Bucs Mighty Mites continue to stand out by leading the way for three of the five undefeated teams on its quest for this year’s title.
Bucs president Jason Hillman talked about the organization’s success and its effort to keep building on last year’s results, including the two teams reaching the playoffs and the Mighty Mites Super Bowl victory.
“The success of our players, coaches as well as all of our volunteers shows the organization’s commitment and sense of competition,” Hillman said. “The end result is just outstanding.”
Hillman is confident of another great year, expecting four out of the five teams reaching post season.
“Our strength is playing together as a team and exercising discipline while making sure that in the process the kids are all having fun,” he said.
The Bucs football is supported by 120 young cheerleaders, led by Cheer Director, Suzi Medrano, who is proud of the girl’s efforts and accomplishments that last year included multiple first place wins and two grand championship titles.
The annual cheerleading competition is now scheduled for Sunday, October 13. The event is said to sport top cheerleading squads from all over Central Florida.
