Dave Clapham (1972-74/ Football, Boxing)

A two-year member of the Nevada Wolf Pack football team, Dave Clapham, an offensive tackle, was named All American by the Associated Press among the country’s small colleges. A transfer to Nevada from San Jose City College in California, Clapham helped his team, under Coach Jerry Scattini to consecutive winning seasons, 6-5 in 1972, and 7-4 in 1973. The seven wins in 1973 were the most for a Nevada football team since 1948. Clapham also boxed as a heavyweight for two years and was undefeated in league matches. After graduation (political science degree, 1974) Clapham signed professional contracts with the San Francisco 49’ers, and again with the Baltimore Colts in 1975, but did not make either team. He played semi-professional football with the San Hose Tigers between the years of 1977 and ’82 and has been very instrumental in the area of combating gang-related crime. He has been a football coach at various levels for 12 years.
