Jason Ratliff has stepped down as Buckeye Central head football coach.  Ratliff took the program over following Mike Tracey after the 2007 season.  During his six seasons guiding the Bucks, his teams went a combined 34-24.  Under Ratliff, Buckeye Central reached the playoffs in twice in 2010 going 9-2 and again the next season in 2011, when the Bucks played for the Division VI state championship finishing at 12-3 and state runner-up to Marion Local.

The Bucks finished 2012 at 2-8, but were hit hard by graduation from the previous spring.  Ratliff taught at Willard High School, then made the drive to New Washington to oversee the program stating the distance got to be a bit too much.  Ratliff says the players at BC have a tremendous work ethic saying they do whatever is asked of them, and more.  The coach also said he would not rule out a return to the sidelines some day.
