Born in Raab, Hungary, Adolph Madaras was raised in Pemberville, Ohio, where he played basketball and ran track at Pemberville High School. At the age of 24, Madaras began attending BGSU, where he would hear three letters in football, basketball and track. He was a starter on the football team at tackle, despite never playing the sport until he began attending BGSU.

In basketball, Madaras was second on the team in scoring in each of his three seasons, scoring a total of 477 points while earning second team All-Ohio honors in 1939-40, helping the Falcons to a 16-4 record. In track, he often competed in the high jump, pole vault, shot put and discus. He captained the 1940 team and set the school record in the shot put.

After a stint in the Navy, Madaras taught at Pemberville, then Eastwood High School between 1946 and 1974. Three of his four children graduated from BGSU. He passed away on August 18, 1975 at the age of 64.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1995.
