Mike Bulger took over the program begining with the 1975 season. Coach Bulger moved up from the J.V. level where he had a 13-1 record. While he wasn’t able to put up those kind of numbers, he was able to lead the Bucks to a 4-4 finish in his first year at the helm. The Bucks opened the season with a win against Suttons Bay thanks to 2 TDs by Dave Swanson. The Bucks dropped their next game by the score of 7-8. Dave Johnson hit De Peterson on a 41 yard pass as time expired, but he was brought down at the 1 yard line. The next game the Bucks would get the needed yardage to pull out a 6-0 victory of Lake City. Larry Swanson would seal the win with a 2 yard TD run with 45 seconds left. The Bucks defense held the Trojans to 31 total yards. The Bucks then hit a rough patch losing three straight games, two of which were decided by a single score. The Bucks finally got their offense going the last 2 weeks with big victories over Marion and Baldwin. The defense was dominant in a win over Marion. Not only did they shut out the Eagles, the Bucks first 2 scores came from the defense. Ken Tracey fell on a blocked punt in the end zone for the first score, and Mark Salisbury returned an interception for the 2nd score. The Bucks would score twice more to make it a 28-0 victory. The Bucks beat Baldwin 45-22 on the last night of the season. Larry Swanson rushed for 4 touchdowns and 100 yards. Jerry Shelton ran for a touchdown and 123 yards. Kevin Wanstead racked up 14 tackles, and for the second week in a row Dave Salisbury picked off 2 passes.
