Recognizing distinguished alumni from Oceanside High School
C.R. Roberts will join the hall of fame for his athletic accomplishments. He was the first Oceanside High School athlete to make it big in professional football when he became a running back for the San Francisco 49ers. After graduating from what was then Oceanside-Carlsbad High in 1954, Roberts moved on to the University of Southern California, where he earned a degree in business administration and continued his success in football. He still holds numerous high school and college football records. Roberts spent years as a high school and community college teacher. Now retired, he keeps active, working with senior citizens at the Community Guidance Center in Norwalk.
