(STATS) - To say Sam Houston State defensive line coach Justin Roberts was tougher on Derick Roberson than other players may have been an understatement this past season.
Urging, encouraging, pushing, whatever you call, it was exactly the kind of tough love Roberson needed to reach a higher level of play as a senior.
"He just really let me know what I'm capable of," Roberson said. "I just kept on hearing that all week, every day in practice, even in film. I was like, 'You know, you're right,' so I was going to give it my all."
