Roseberry paves the way for American River

For the past couple of years, the American River football program has been putting out tons of talent and this year will be no exception. One of their top returning offensive lineman, OT Bob Roseberry (6-6, 315), is still waiting on some offers, but he's more than happy to be patient and instead is focused on improving his game to take he and his team to the next level...

Roseberry prepped at Rio Americano (Sacramento, Ca.) High School where he enjoyed a solid start to his football career, but because he wasn't really noticed by college programs, he decided to head to ARC.

"I really wasn't recruited much and American River has a great program going here," Roseberry told "I really liked the coaches and figured if I was going to keep playing, it was best to do it here."

As a freshman this past season, Roseberry started four games at right tackle and that is where he will reside this fall.

"I started some due to injuries and some due to guys being sick and I felt I did pretty well," Roseberry said. "One thing about me is that I always know my assignment and my coaches can trust that I always know what I'm supposed to do.

"This offseason I've been focused on my flexibility and making sure I can adjust to things, stunts and other stuff like that, easier."

On the recruiting front, things have been a bit slow for Roseberry and he's waiting for his first offer, but he's willing to be patient and let the process run its course.

"I've talked to a couple of small schools in Oregon (Western Oregon and Willamett) and I've talked a little bit with Sacramento State," Roseberry said. "I figured I'll just be patient and see what comes in for me. I can't really control what schools look at and if they like me. All I can do is go out and play the best I can and let the rest of it take care of itself."

Roseberry is a good student and expects to graduate in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
