Cole Roberson OPRF OL Class of 2023 6'3 223
Cole Roberson how was your 2019 season? For me personal I felt like it wasn’t the season I was looking for ending up 4-5. But me being a freshman on varsity my biggest focus was getting in rhythm with the team and the program, and there has been some good moments during the season. Just a lot of problems and adversity we had faced, but overall I would say I did a pretty good job getting along with the team and play at a high level. When I played youth football I did play up due to my weight and size, but a lot of coaches and teammates help me be able to play against older opponents What should college coaches know about you? Great work ethic always key, I’m a team player always believing in team benefit over individual benefit. I take care of my grades, I’m a leader in any setting, great communicator. I am respectful of everyone, and I love the art of the game have it be the brotherhood, sportsmanship, or just enjoy the sport itself it’s a one of a kind game. What part of your game have you been working on in the offseason? I’ve been working on everything. From earlier last year last year speed training with my track coach to skill training both OL and DL, to working out at by myself with all the minimum stuff that I can. To whenever I was able to get in a gym setting and work on strength with my trainer. But mostly overall I’ve been working on putting on weight I went from freshman at 225 to right now 255. Come season I wish to do some more cardio and speed training help me move this new weight on the field in the spring. What does football mean to you? Football means a lot. I played football since I was six. Football has taught me a lot and still. Mostly just how to work as a team, how to be a leader, how to be respectful, also teaching me who am I as a person. Teaches me how to deal with problems and a whole lot more. Football is my happy place. Being away from it so long has me really think about the importance of football in my life. Football has once of the shortest seasons and longest off season and this year being even longer. So I’m grateful to be back. It’s not just always about football but everything that is attached to it or what can be attached to it is important to me. What do you like about playing in the trenches? It’s the dirty works. They always say it starts up front for either side. It controls the the game. If your o line isn’t blocking then you have no run game or the qb has not time make plays. If your d line isn’t making plays, then your opponent has the time in the world. Simple science to me but the importance is by far what controls the game. It’s not the most glorified, but it’s definitely worth the win. The aggressiveness and the sacrifices to be clashing blow for blow constantly in order to win is the glory. But not say trenches can get their fair share of popularity.
