By Leland Crouse
Newspaper clipping from fall 1992:
Craig Roberson joins the list of Ada HS athletes who gained at least 1,000 yards during their varsity football career. Roberson rushed for 1,139 yards and scored 12 TCs in 10 games in 1977. Roberson caught two Stan Parshall passes for 25 more yards. The Bulldogs finished 7-2-1 under Coach Jeff Wise during the 1992 football season.

Ada Junior High also has a 1,000 plus player. Heath Webb, an 8th grader, had a fantastic season this fall for the Bulldogs. He rushed for 1,092 yards in seven games and scored 17 touchdowns. He averaged 156 yards per game and 10.8 yards per carry. Webb also made 55 tackles, intercepted three passes and recovered four fumbles.
