Ross Brown Craig was a solid, hard-hitting running back. He was rated by opposing clubs as the greatest line-plunging ball carrier of the day. This was during a time when the rules offered a minimum of running room.

Craig played in two grey cup games, both of them victories for the city of Hamilton. In the 1913 Grey Cup, the Tigers soundly defeated Toronto Parkdale, and Craig played a tremendous game. In that game, he scored three touchdowns, a feat which has seldom been equalled.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 1964 as a player.
