That proved to be the criteria necessary to start what would become a remarkable football career for the 1966 graduate.
“I went out for football freshman year and there were only 10 uniforms left, so the guys that didn’t already have one were told to stand in line from tallest to shortest,” Webster said. “I happened to be one of the tallest guys, so they gave me a uniform. That’s the only reason I made the varsity that season.”
While his first season was relatively uneventful, he would go on to become the first all-state player in program history.
Webster was a two-way standout for the Crusaders, demonstrating his versatility by being a running back, split end, linebacker and defensive back during his high school career.
