Robertgeau Roams The Deep Patrol For Shasta

2017 Shasta S Carl Robertgeau (6-0, 190) is a ballhawk in the Shasta secondary and he's started to see recruiting pick up since the start of his sophomore season...

So far this season, Robertgeau leads the state of California with nine interceptions while also posting 26 tackles, one sack, two tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble and five pass breakups from his safety spot.

"I can play free safety or strong safety, it really doesn't matter to me," Robertgeau told "I feel like I'm good in center field, playing the ball and then going up and getting it, but I also can drop down and play the run or be a cover safety. It really just depends on what my team needs and where I can help them the most."

This offseason the talented defensive back got to work getting stronger and also working on his technique.

"I lifted a lot," Robertgeau noted. "I wanted to get a lot stronger than I was last year, so that was a huge focus for me, but I also worked a lot on my footwork and being more explosive because I wanted to be able to go up and make plays on the ball in the air."

As far as offers are concerned, Robertgeau already has offers from a couple of FCS programs, but some FBS schools seem like they could be close to getting in the mix.

"I have offers from Arkansas Pine-Bluff and Central Arkansas," Robertgeau said. "The other main schools talking to me are Arkansas StateWashington StateIowa StateLouisville and Montana so I am hopeful that more offers could be coming.

"I've talked to Cal Poly about coming up for a visit and I'll probably do that after my season is over, but right now, that's about it."

As a prep in Homestead, Florida, Robertgeau committed to a D-2 program, but he wasn't happy about his decision, so he decided to go the JC route.

"I signed with Mars Hill in North Carolina, but I thought I could play at a higher level and just felt like I was in the wrong place," Robertgeau recalled. "My cousin, Mario Mezier, was already out here and I wanted to get the chance to play with him, so I decided to come out here to the West Coast and play ball and I've really been happy here."

Robertgeau is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
