What to expect: The Bucks expect to be highly competitive this season in Class D South, a region they won just two years ago. Jackson, Grover and Warren will be looked upon to lead a group that has a fair share of young players. Rines said he has a tough schedule, but that should only prepare Buckfield for a Class D South tournament that could be led by Greenville and Richmond. Rines thinks his squad has all the tools to match those teams.
