History

 

In 2000 the Buccaneers were formed when leadership of the Columbia Cougars splintered in three directions.  Multnomah joined the Thunderbolts and Panthers on the Oregon side of the border, as the Cougars and Cavaliers played primarily on the Washington side.  The immediate impact was a Bucs team that would make three straight NWFL championship appearances, breaking through in 2001 as NWFL Champs.

 

The Willamette Valley Raiders would join the Portland-fray in 2001 and by 2003 the four Portland teams were beating each other up for talent shifting the power of the NWFL back to the Seattle area.

 

The problems for the Bucs began in 2004 with coaching and management changes and the forfeiture of five scheduled games.  The forfeits came down to two in 2005, but players continued to leave the organization. 

 

The team limped through the 2006 season with barely enough players to field a team finishing 1-6.

 

By 2007, the once proud and dominate team in Portland had slipped to the doormat and an exodus of players forced the team to finally fold up for good at mid-season.  From best to worst, the Bucs won 36 games in their first four seasons and only 8 games in the final four.  The team forfeited a total of 12 scheduled games in it's 8 year history.

 

Wide Receiver Josh Branch and Athlete Shay Dean are two of the most highly decorated players in Bucs history.  Branch earning All-America honors and Dean earning All-NWFL honors at multiple positions.
