An inspirational leader on the football team during his four seasons at Utah State (1998-2001), John Roberts begins his second season on the Aggie football staff as the offensive graduate assistant in charge of running backs.
A former running back and key special teams performer for the Aggies, Roberts had his playing career shortened when he suffered a broken arm in the sixth game of his senior year against Idaho State.
Roberts backed up two of the best running backs in school history as he saw action behind Demario Brown, USU's all-time rushing leader, and Emmett White, the fifth-leading rusher at USU.
As a freshman, Roberts rushed for 313 yards on 86 carries, including a 118-yard game against Sam Houston State. As a sophomore he carried 30 times for 141 yards and in 2000 he rushed 26 times for 99 yards.
Roberts excelled on special teams and was voted the team's most inspirational player in 2000 and again in 2001. He also shared the team's Golden Helmet Award in 2000. Roberts was born Feb. 19, 1980 in San Diego, Calif.
