Two very good players from two of Colorado’s top programs; quarterback Justin Roberts of Pomona and safety Quentin Holley of Valor Christian opted this week to play their college at football Nebraska-Kearney.
Roberts, a 6-3 190 pound quarterback, guided his Pomona squad to a deep playoff run by completing 66% of his passes for 13 touchdowns against only three interceptions. Roberts chose Kearney over offers from CSU-Pueblo, Southwest Minnesota and Washburn. Roberts is a big fan of new Kearney Head Coach Josh Lamberson who was a DII All-American Quarterback at Northwest Missouri State. Roberts also feels he has the opportunity to play early for the Lopers.
Holley of Valor was part of one of Colorado’s best defenses and a very talented defensive backfield that included Eric Lee and Brian Dawkins Jr. The rangy 6-1 170 pound Holley had 43 tackles and an interception this season. Holley is comfortable as a run stopper and in coverage and should be an early special team’s contributor for Kearney.
