Quick Take: Roberts played his third game as a quarterback with Scout in attendance on Friday, against the state's top defense no less, and he still held his own with his athleticism and decisiveness. Though unable to snag the win, Roberts looked more comfortable in the read-option, making quick decisions and getting to the hole as quick as he ever has. He also played some more defense in this one, earning a pass-breakup in the end zone during limited paying time. The senior shows a quick twitch, speed and better power than expected in the video below.
Roberts, wearing No. 4 in red in the video below, notched 116 yards rushing and also threw a 14-yard touchdown in the loss to Hoover.
