Among the undefeated football teams at Jamestown High School was one coached by 1996 Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame inductee Terry Ransbury.
Ransbury guided the 1964 Red Raiders to a perfect 8-0 record and that accomplishment along with several others enabled him to become a Hall of Famer in the 15th year of the selections.
The 1964 above mentioned squad was the first Jamestown team since 1949 to go undefeated and had such standouts as the late Dan Luciano, Jim (Jumbo) Stockwell, John Bloomquist, whose son Jeff Bloomquist was a standout for Coach Wally Huckno's highly successful clubs (1989-1991), Jonas Johnson and Phil Trass.
Ransbury was born in Dunkirk in 1928 and went to high school at Silver Creek where he was an outstanding letterman in baseball, basketball, football, and track.
