2019 Season Recap

The Bison have finished their 2019 season with a record of 9-3.  All offensive statistics have been updated through the end of the 2019 season.  Defensive statistics will be updated when 2019 stats are finalized.  All team statistics and averages have been figured using the 11 games the Bison actually played, excluding the forfeit win over Philipsburg-Osceola.  Total points (365), however, include the two points earned by the forfeit.

The 2019 season closes with senior Brett Zattoni finishing his career as the seventh all-time leading rusher in Clearfield history with 2,618 yards and fifth by total carries (465).  Zattoni topped the 1,000 yard mark for the second time, joining Christian Lezzer, Dave Richards, Josh Harbold, Isaiah Morgan, Seth Caldwell, and Stu Wiggins as the only Bison running backs to record two 1,000 yard seasons.

Junior Jake Lezzer has moved into a tie with his brother Ryan (2013-2016) for third all-time in receptions with 115.  Jake is 15 behind the all-time leader Trey Campman (2007-2009) (130).  Lezzer is also now third all-time in receiving yards with 2,115, just 239 behind Wes Dahlem (1991-1994) for most all-time in Clearfield history.

Sophomore quarterback Oliver Billotte’s 442 passing yards against Penns Valley set an all-time record for most in a single game, crushing Isaac Rumery’s record by 70 yards.  Billotte now has 2,000 career passing yards, giving him the 15th most in Clearfield history.

The 2019 season also saw the Bison capture the program’s 600th win (a forfeit against Philipsburg-Osceola).  Clearfield has now won 602 games.  A link to the all-time wins list has been added to the Miscellaneous section of the website, however that list is only current through the end of the 2017 season.

Coach Janocko continues to move up the all-time wins list.  His record now sits at 284-114-3.  The link to the all-time coaching wins list can also be found under the Miscellaneous section, and is current through the end of last season (2018).

A Program History tab has also been added.  This section of the site will work to incorporate historical data compiled by www.clearfieldfootball.org.

Team, Individual Stat Updates

Team statistics have been updated through the end of the 2015 season.  The update that will include the current season will take place after 2016 ends for the Bison.

Individual statistics will also be updated following the completion of the 2016 season, but here is a snapshot of current individual statistics through Week 9 of this season unless otherwise noted.  Clearfield’s Week 9 statistics are not in MaxPreps as of the time of this post; all statistics for 2016 shown below come from MaxPreps and the P-O game story from The Progress.

Seth Caldwell

Career: 747 carries (1st all-time), 4,176 yards (93 behind Christian Lezzer for 2nd all-time), 40 rushing TDs (2 behind Jarrin Campman for 4th all-time).  Seth has gained 4,417 total yards from scrimmage in his career (3rd all-time) and has scored 45 total touchdowns (4th all-time).

Ryan Lezzer

Career: 100 receptions (23 behind Wes Dahlem for 2nd all-time), 1,882 receiving yards (79 behind Trey Campman for 2nd all-time), 22 receiving TDs (1 behind Brian Kaspick for 2nd all-time).  Ryan is 73 yards away from becoming the first Bison with three seasons of 500+ receiving yards.  He is also 151 rushing yards from becoming the first Bison to ever gain 1,000 career receiving yards and 1,000 career rushing yards.  He has 2,731 yards from scrimmage (8th all-time) and has scored 36 career touchdowns (9th all-time).  Defensively, he holds the school record with 16 career interceptions.

Matt Collins

Career: 311 tackles (school record).  Collins set a school record for single-season tackles with 167 in 2015 and has 121 so far in 2016, the fourth-most in a season in school history.  With more tackles this season, Collins will hold the school’s top two seasons for tackles.  His 23 tackles in last year’s playoff loss to Johnstown set the school’s single-game record, besting the 22 tackles by Seth Ford in 2012 against Punxsutawney.

Micah Heichel’s 7 catches for 190 yards against Central marked the 4th-highest receiving yardage total in school history.  His 606 yards this season (through Week 8) are the 18th-highest in single-season history.

Isaac Rumery now has 1,323 passing yards in 2016, the 17th-highest single-season total for a Bison.  His 311 passing yard game against Central stands as the 5th-most in Clearfield history.

Mason Royer has 163 career tackles, placing him 16th on the all-time list.

With 65 tackles this season, Steven Sawyer has now gone over 100 career tackles (113).

 

2014 Season Update

Hi Everyone,

This site has been pretty quiet for the past few months, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing going on behind the scenes. I’ve been continuing to research and collect as much information as I can find and I think that most people will like the long-term projects that I have in mind. However, most of these will take several months and won’t be ready until sometime during the next offseason. With the 2014 opener at Keyser (WV) just 11 days away, I want to reach out and ask you to give me recommendations, requests, etc. for what you’d like to see here on a weekly basis. I plan on running features on former players – similar to March’s post on Vic Jones – as part of the weekly preview for each game this year, at least for the first 6-8 weeks. I’d still appreciate any and all feedback in the comments section below this post. I have a lot of things I want to do with this site, but I also want to get as much input as possible from the people who visit it as well.

One final thing – be sure to follow this site on Twitter (@BisonFBStats) and the new Clearfield Football Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/clearfieldbisonfootball).

As always, thanks for stopping by. This site should hit 5,000 views sometime this season – I never thought it would get half that amount of attention.
