HIGHLIGHTS: Roberts carried the ball 30 times for 213 yards and three touchdowns to lead a South Aiken rushing attack that accounted for 316 yards in a 47-28 victory over Ridge View in the first round of the Class AAAA playoffs this past Friday. The bruising senior running back has been one of the top rushers in the area the past two seasons and is again on his way to one of the highest yardage totals in the area.
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: “I think everybody kind of realizes it’s playoff time. It’s playoff time and everybody picked up their game a little bit. That’s what you want. They believe in what we’re doing and how we do it, and they believe good things can happen for them.” — South Aiken coach Chris Hamilton
WHAT HE SAID: “We got a taste of it last year, but we want the full meal. We talk about family and how we love each other. We’re treating each practice like it’s the last. We’re working hard to get back to where we were last year and take it one game at a time in the playoffs.”
