DID YOU KNOW?
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was the first to reach the now-infamous streaker was none other than Plant City’s own Clinton Stearns, who recorded his first tackle during a football game since his playing days at Plant City High School. Stearns, who graduated in 2009, played on both sides of the ball as a dual-threat quarterback and a safety in his time with the Raiders’ varsity team.
It wasn’t Stearns’ first time on national television, either. He was also featured in an episode of COPS in which he conducted a traffic stop on a male driver not wearing a seat belt and found much more stashed in the vehicle — including drugs and a gun.
