During a game, getting to the quarterback for a sack can be difficult. The offensive linemen are just the first wave a defensive player needs to bust through. Then of course a running back can offer a second wave, and then the quarterback’s internal clock of getting rid of the ball before a sack can be recorded.
Due to these factors when a sack is recorded, the defence celebrates. However, when one player compiles more than one sack in a game it can be record setting.
Throughout CJFL history there have been several players that have recorded more than one sack in a single game, but there is a plateau in which only six players have reached. Collecting five sacks in a game is an incredible feat and hasn’t been done since 2012. The first player to reach this milestone was Ron Zammit of the Hamilton Hurricanes in 1982, 39 years ago.
The top 5 all-time defensive lineman leaders for sacks in a single regular season game are:
1 – Steven Doege – 5 for the Okanagan Sun (BCFC) in 2012
2 – Evan Foster (pictured) – 5 for the Langley Rams (BCFC) in 2009
3 – Jim LaPointe – 5 for the Okanagan Sun (BCFC) in 2001
4 – Adrian MacKenzie – 5 for the Richmond Raiders (BCFC) in 1990
5 – Ron Zammit – 5 for the Hamilton Hurricanes (OFC) in 1982
6 – Dave Gebert – 5 for Regina Rams (PFC) in 1985
