Madison football honors its coaching Rudmans

By Ernie Clark, Special to the BDN

MADISON, Maine — Madison Area Memorial High School recognized its former father-son coaching tandem of Art and Carl Rudman last Friday night, dedicating the football field at the school in their honor prior to the homecoming game between Madison/Carrabec and Waterville.

Art Rudman served as head coach at Madison from 1981 to 1986 and guided a Bulldogs squad quarterbacked by former University of Maine standout and current Old Dominion University head coach Bobby Wilder to the 1982 Class C state championship.

Carl Rudman, who was the team’s offensive coordinator during his father’s tenure at the school, took over as the Bulldogs’ head coach from 1987 to 1994 and led the program to three more state titles in 1988, 1989 and 1994.

Madison/Carrabec, 2-4 in the Pine Tree Conference Class B ranks this fall, returns to action against Gardiner at Rudman Field on Friday night.
