Landers Athlete of the Week: Aaron Roberson - July 16th

Posted: Updated:
Louisiana Tech football fans have a bright future to look forward to with Huntington senior Aaron Roberson as one of its top 2015 recruits. Roberson, though, does so much more than shine on the football field.   

Roberson is this week's Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep Athlete of the Week.  If the title "All Around Athlete" was in the dictionary, Roberson's picture would be perfect for it.  "I'm just the typical high school kid," said Roberson.  

The Huntington senior does it all for the Raiders.  He's bocorner backack and defensive back.  But, he's also a stud on the basketball team and on the track and field team as well.  "I try to fight it in my schedule. I really don't have a chance to do to much but I try to make everything possible," he said. 

Roberson maintains a 3.0 GPA and has been invited to several national combines and most recently will be featured on the cover of next month's Louisiana Football Magazine.  "My Mom she was very excited, very excited. She's still excited to this day because I'm doing big things for her she's a very proud parent right now," he said. 

Huntington head coach Marvin Harris said, "He has a gorapportore with his teammates. When he picks it up, they pick it up. So it's almost kind of saying that we go as he goes."

It's not just on the field or on the court, in his free time, Roberson walks around his community and washes cars.  He also mows the yards of the senior citizens who just can't get around like they used.  "Na lotlot of kids my age just go around and do that type of thing. Alot of people just think he's just a kid that walks the streets. He does this, he does that, but I'm not that type of kid."

Harris said, "You talk to his Mom and you see how passionate she is about helping people."  A mother who Aaron says is the reason, for his success.   "She was a single parent. She raised three kids on her own basically and that sticks with me all the time. I just want to make her happy."

Roberson gave out thanks as he accepted the Athlete of the Week award.  "Thank you. I want to thank God, my family, the coaching staff at Huntington High School and this great community. But, most of all my school and I want to thank you for this amazing award."
