TENNERTON — Following a rollercoaster 3-7 2021-22 season, the Buckhannon-Upshur High School football coaching staff is in the early stages of organizing their summer offseason workout program. The 3-7 record, while not ideal, was a marked improvement from the previous two seasons, in which the Bucs only managed to win two total combined games.
They say “iron sharpens iron,” as second-year Head Coach Zach Davis and his 2022-23 edition of the football Buccaneers will start preparing for the season ahead during the summer Power T Camp on June 6 for high school players. Players will report to the weight room right after school lets out on June 6 at 3:30 p.m. to kickstart the summer workout program.
After an up-and-down first year roaming the sidelines for the Bucs, in which Coach Davis managed to beat rivals, Lewis County, Philip Barbour, and Elkins; he has his sights focused on building upon the foundation he set in year one. As such, the Bucs enter this season with high hopes as they are set to return several key contributors from last year’s young squad, including leading rusher: Savion Farmer, who is poised to have a big season leading a talented backfield for the Bucs.
As the summer preparation begins for the Bucs, excitement for the 2022-23 season’s opening kickoff will grow with each passing day. After all, there is nothing quite like football.
