LEESBURG - The Jackets failed to go 4-0 for the third time in the last twelve years. The 1999 and
2001 teams were coached by Clermont East Ridge head coach Bud O'Hara and failed to reach the 4-0
mark. On September 18, 1999 O'Hara's Jackets faced his former team Belleview High School in a
attempt to go 4-0. The Jackets were unsuccessful that night as the Rattlers beat the Jackets 42-7. In
2007 head coach Charles Nasser lead the Yellow Jackets to a 3-0 start. He lost his bid to go 4-0
against you guessed it O'Hara East Ridge squad 27-10.

The Jackets haven't went 4-0 since October 9, 1976, when they were led by quarterback Clay
Sampson (The only player in NCAA Division III history to pass for 3000 yards and rush for 3000 yards
in a career at Dennison College OH).

The Jackets defeated Gainesville Eastside 57-7 to go 4-0. In that game Clay Sampson completed 8-for-
16 passes for 130 yards and three touchdowns. Sampson 6 carries for 51 rushing yards. Sampson is
the cousin of  sophomore defensive Back Bryant Benton. The Jackets had 35 carries and 266 yards
rushing in that game. Head Coach Max Wettstein's team had outscored its opponents 178 to 13 en
route to the 4-0 record.
