Remembering Roger Kraft

It was football season, October, 1959, and the Elida Bulldogs were playing Pandora. If you happened to be involved with high school football at that time, 56 years ago- then you may remember the tragic story of Roger Kraft.

John Ondo recently took some time at Kraft Memorial Stadium, looking back at the man behind the name, and the community that chose to memorialize him.  (www.ondomedia.com)

One thought on “Remembering Roger Kraft

  1. Roger sat beside me in study hall. I will never forget him, he was a friend and a classmate. I was at that football game when he collaped. Everyone in our class of 1961 remembered that year and that game. He was missed.
