Season Recap:
The 2003 Pine River Football team had one of the toughest years in school history. The team never seemed to catch a break. The Bucks limped through a tough schedule and had too many injuries to be competitive against the likes of teams like state runner-up Beal City. The Bucks almost pulled out a victory against Morley Standwood, and they lost a heartbreaker to Marion on homecoming. The underclassman on the team took the losses personally. They used the ’03 season as motivation for one of the best turnarounds in state history.
