Athletic Director Steve Roberts to be inducted into SAU Hall of Fame

Posted on 09/29/2016

Cabot’s Athletic Director Steve Roberts will be inducted into the SAU Sports Hall of Fame September 30th.

The ceremony will take place at the Grand Hall of the Donald W. Reynolds Campus and Community Center on the campus of SAU along with nine other inductees. A public induction will be held at halftime of the October 1 football game against Southern Nazarene.
 
The 2016 Southern Arkansas University Sports Hall of Fame class is comprised of nine former SAU student-athlete standouts as well as one coach. That coach is our very own Steve Roberts.

​The Cabot Athletic Department surprised Coach Roberts with a reception for his Hall of Fame honor and to show appreciation for his dedication and hard work.

    

Roberts was the head coach of the Mulerider football team from 1994-1999. In his six seasons at the helm, Roberts went 35-24-1 overall.
 
In his first year, Roberts' Muleriders went 1-7-1. The following year, in 1995, SAU made the jump to NCAA Division II and were members of the Gulf South Conference; a league that boasted perennial national powers in North Alabama and Valdosta State.
 
In his fourth season in 1997, Roberts guided the Muleriders to a 9-2 overall record and a 6-1 mark in the GSC which resulted in SAU claiming a share of the GSC Championship that year. It was SAU's first conference title since Coach Powell's 1972 squad shared the AIC Championship.
 
The GSC title and an impressive 9-1 regular season record propelled SAU to their first NCAA playoff berth.  Roberts last three years at SAU produced 26-5 record that is still the best in school history.
 
After SAU, Roberts went on to coach 11 more years in college football at the Division I-level with stops at Northwestern State (La.) and Arkansas State.

Roberts is currently the Athletic Director at Cabot High School and in 2015, he was named by the Arkansas High School Athletic Administrator's Association as the 2014-15 Athletic Director of the Year.
