Year in Review - 1968

May 21, Change At The Top

Ownership partners Don Lillis, Leon Hess, Townsend Martin and Phil Iselin bought out Sonny Werblin, with Lillis assuming the club's presidency. Lillis died (July 23). Iselin was appointed president and Mrs. Helen Springborn, Lillis' daughter, joined the board of directors (Aug. 6)

July 1, Camp Relocation

The Jets relocated their training camp to Hofstra University on Long Island in Hempstead, N.Y.

November 17, Storybook Tale

The movie "Heidi" became a footnote in Jets and NFL history when NBC didn't show the final 50 seconds of the Jets-Raiders game, in which the Jets had just taken a 32-29 lead with 1:05 to play, to allow the children's special to begin on time. Oakland scored two TDs in the last 42 seconds to win, 43-32.

December 1, All Pro Parade

Eleven Jets were named to the AFL's All-Star squad, the most postseason honorees in franchise history.
