+-------- First game that Jefferson wore a Solid Red Helmet with

Dragons written in script on each side of the

helmet – (1991-1994).

##------- Friday the 13th record, (9-3-2)

^^------ A talent deficient Dragon team was unable to adequately

compete with the Tigers’ offensive firepower.

^^^-----The Dragons were shut out for five consecutive

games (2nd thru 6th).

&------- Jefferson lost every game during the 1991 season for

only the third time in Dragon football history with the

other years being 1947 and 1948.

This loss to Social Circle completed a two year, 19-game

losing streak which is the longest in Dragon football history

and which also tied the 19-game losing streak from the

first game of 1947 through the second game of 1949.

This losing streak through the last game of 1991

dated back to the second game of 1990.

++------ Last Jefferson game for Coach Glenn Matthews

His record at Jefferson was (0-10-0), 10 games.

&&----- Previously reported incorrectly as a (6-40) score—CN

. ----------- No games were decided by 8 points or less.

+-------- First Jefferson game for Coach Marc Wilson

++-------This victory ended the 19-game losing streak by

the Dragons from the previous two seasons.

$-------- Matt Childress had a 99-yard kickoff return for a TD.

This return is tied for the longest KNOWN KO RETURN TD

in Jefferson history with another 99 yarder by Childress

against Monticello again the next year in 1993. Yes, this is correct.

^---------Following a Dragon TD late in the fourth quarter, Jefferson

failed on a two-point conversion pass attempt that would

have tied the game, as the rally fell just shy.

RB Wayne Borders cut the initial Tiger lead to (8-6) with a

one-yard plunge, but the two-point conversion pass failed.

In the fourth period:

QB Scott Jackson passed 43 yards down the right sideline

in front of the Jefferson bench to Tyler Truelove for the

potential tying touchdown.

However, the try for the game tying two-point conversion

pass attempt using the same combo fell incomplete, and

the Dragons lost a hard-fought game to the Tigers by two.

##--------Friday the 13th record, (9-4-2)

Chunta Gill was the catalyst for the Dragons with a

35-yard TD run in the first quarter, and he added a

23-yard FG with only five seconds remaining in the

first half for the (9-0) Jefferson lead.

After Commerce had cut the second half Dragon lead to

(9-6), a late Tiger fourth quarter rally was stopped by

the Jefferson defense near midfield.

The Jefferson defense was outstanding, as they shut

down the Tiger offense for most of the evening.

Solid Red Helmet with Dragons written in

script on each side of the helmet – (1991-94).

^^^-----This is the ONLY PLAYOFF GAME ever played between

Jefferson and Commerce; it was a region playoff game

Buford, and Commerce was the 3rd seed.

Jefferson jumped out to an early (6-0) lead and later led

by Jody Pollock. However, Commerce scored on its first

two drives of the third quarter, as the Dragons fell behind

2OT----- Jefferson’s THIRD OVERTIME game historically;

Commerce won in the second overtime

period with a field goal.

Counting the four ties, the lead changed hands eleven times

in this contest. This was one of the greatest and most

exciting games ever played between Jefferson and

Commerce. It was a tough one for the Dragons to lose

after earlier missing a 37-yard field goal wide right at

the end of regulation which would have broken the

(24-24) tie and given Jefferson the victory.

The (24-24) tie score at the end of regulation is tied for

second as the highest tie score in a regulation game in

Jefferson football history; also (1990) -OT Record, (1-2)

Jefferson scores were:

Adam Rooks, a 68-yard TD run; J.J. Brueshaber had

a 32-yard FG; Travis Martin, a 20-yard TD run;

Wade Johnson, a 1-yard TD run;

Justin Mize, had a 7-yard TD run

OT------ This is the FOURTH OVERTIME game in Jefferson

football history. OT Record, (2-2)

The Dragons went for two and the win following a TD in overtime,

Tab Martin’s two-point conversion run was successful and

propelled the Dragons on to an exciting victory.

##-------- Friday the 13th record, (12-7-2)

$--------- Jefferson rallied from a (12-0) halftime deficit to cut the Commerce lead

to (15-13) midway through the fourth period after a TD and a missed

two-point conversion. However, the rally fell just shy of a victory,

when late in the fourth period a game-winning field goal by the

Jefferson kicker sailed just barely wide left after a determined drive.

RB Tyler Hill had a 1-yard TD run, and QB Josh Bohanan had

an 18-yard TD pass to HB Zac Crosby.

$$-------- Jefferson rallied from a (13-0) halftime deficit to take the lead at (14-13)

in the fourth period after a 45-yard TD run by Zac Crosby and a

76-yard TD pass from Bohanan to Williamson, only to have AA gain

the win with a late field goal and later add another TD.

A win vs. AA would have given Jefferson part of a three way tie for first

place in the Region 8A title hunt with Athens Academy and Commerce.

^^------- All five losses by Jefferson in 2006 were to teams that finished in the

Class A Top Ten AJC Final Poll.

++------- Bill Navas is still the coach at Jefferson, and his record

at Jefferson is (30-25-1), 56 games - (2002-06)
