Play-by-play icon calls last game

From by Dick Knipfing - One of New Mexico's best known voices signed off for the final time Friday night after broadcasting his last high school football game.  Mike Roberts is best known as the "Voice of the Lobos." He did the play-by-play of Lobo football and basketball games for 40 years.
     After that ended five years ago he switched to high school sports:  "I enjoyed it," Roberts told KRQE News 13. "I started doing play-by-play when I was in high school. "That was one thing I really loved doing, and I was lucky enough to have people let me do it."
     Mike, who's now 80, says he doesn't know what he'll do now, but he'll have to learn how not to work. Roberts began his broadcasting career in Atmore, Alabama, at WATM in December 1951. More
