The Batavia Youth Football program has just completed a historic season during which three of the organization’s six teams played in the Clermont County Youth Football League Super Bowl at Goshen High School.

The 8-year-old team, coached by Luke Berger finished undefeated at 8-0 and took home a Super Bowl victory, advancing through the playoffs as a No. 1 seed. They defeated the No. 2-seeded Blanchester team 20-0, capping off a perfect defensive season in which they gave up zero points to their opponents.

The 9-year-old team, coached by Steve Scaggs went 7-1 on the season, culminated by their 26-20 defeat of Blanchester in the Super Bowl. Like the 8-year-old team, both Batavia and Blanchester were No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the playoffs, respectively.

The 11- and 12-year old team, coached by Bill Albright finished their final season in the Batavia Football League by going 6-2 and appearing in their first Super Bowl, but fell to Amelia, 24-14. The team defeated the two most recent champions, Bethel and Blanchester to advance to the Super Bowl.

The BYF’s other three teams also enjoyed their seasons with the 5- and 6-year old team finishing at 3-5, making the playoffs as a No. 6 seed; the 7-year-old team, coached by Rob Maham went 1-7 and the 10-year-old team, coached by Rusty Beatty went 0-8.

Congratulations to the entire Batavia Youth Football organization on completing a successful season.
