Roberts Looking to Make His Mark for 2009
Kevin Roberts Profile The Wildcats were just a few plays away from winning the 5A state title last year. Getting so close to accomplishing the ultimate goal for every high school team has been a source of inspiration for every member of the Meridian football program. "It has really motivated us to work harder as a team," explained Roberts. "We feel like if we put our minds to it and get everyone on the same page, we can get over that hump." The off season sent the Wildcats into the weight room and to the practice field for some self improvement. Roberts believes the hard work is paying off. "This year I think I am doing better at tackling," said Kevin. "My coverage skills have improved a lot from last year." Roberts camped at Mississippi State this summer and has attended games at MSU and Ole Miss this season. The talented defensive back reports that geography is not going to be a major factor in his decision, but he finds several schools in the southeast attractive. "I am just looking for a good school with a good program with good academics," said Kevin. "I am looking at Ole Miss, LSU, Alabama, Florida, Southern Miss and some others. I would like to play in the SEC."
