Interception Ace Plans to Camp at Auburn

A football report is featured on an outstanding defensive back from Mississippi.

Crawford, Miss.--East Oktibbeha County High School has one of the most prolific pass defenders in the State of Mississippi. Kyle Roberts nabbed 11 opponents' passes from the air in 2005. His knack for finding the ball may earn him a Division I scholarship.

"I am getting letters from Tennessee, Alabama, Colorado, Houston, Auburn, Mississippi State, LSU, USM, Tulsa, Illinois and Memphis," reported Roberts.

Kyle is still waiting for his first offer, but has an idea of where he would like to play in college. "My favorites are Mississippi State, Auburn and LSU," said Kyle.

Why those three?

Mississippi State--"It's like a family tradition. My uncle attended there. He didn't play ball or anything, but he would love for me to play there. My family would really like for me to attend MSU. I like it a lot and it's close to home."

Auburn--"Auburn is a nice school and I really like their football program. I feel I could get a good education there."

LSU--"LSU has a great team and I would really love to play there."

So how does a guy get double digit interceptions? "(laughs) Well, I play some receiver, too, so that helps. I just have good defensive skills and great hands."

Kyle was unable to attend Junior days due to conflicts with his high school baseball schedule, but plans to camp at LSU, Auburn and Mississippi State to learn more about each school.

According to Kyle, the overall educational experience and the depth chart of his prospective teams will be the main factors in his college decision.
