Dr. Romain Clerou


Inducted February, 1980

A former lineman under Jack Frost for the Bakersfield High class B Sandabs, and then for Bakersfield College, ROmain Clerou has combined his medical profession as a general practitioner with a lifelong romance with sports. The result was his perennial role as a familiar team doctor on the sidelines, at various times for Bakersfield High Drillers, Garces High Rams and Bakersfield College Renegades. As “twelfth man” for the ‘Gades, his contributions were so highly regarded that when a new facility was built several years ago, it was named Romain Clerou Fieldhouse. In addition, he has been an outstanding booster, benefactor and contributor to various youth sports programs in the community.
