Glendale's first head boys basketball coach Jack Roberts will be inducted into the Springfield Area Sports Hall of Fame in September. It'll be his fourth hall of fame induction (Drury, Missouri Sports, and MBCA). Coach Roberts never had a losing season in 21 years at Glendale and changed the mascot at Camdenton High to the Lakers from the Tigers. He played college basketball at Drury and high school basketball at Buffalo. He was also the head tennis coach at Glendale when the boys team won state in 1982. Jack won 601 games as a varsity and junior varsity basketball coach from 1948 to 1984. During World War II, he served in the Army earning Good Conduct Badges, a Distinguished Unit Badge, five Battle Stars, and left as a private first class.
