Waterloo All-Stars: Roberts top of the class

James Roberts capped of his high school career with special recognition.

The Jacob Hespeler pivot and recent Guelph Gryphons commit was awarded the Doug Shuh Award as the Waterloo County Secondary Schools Athletic Association (WCSSAA) league MVP.

He is the first quarterback to win the major award since 2004.  Cameron Heights Golden Gaels’ Evan Martin was the last pivot to win the honour.  Roberts became only the second Hawks standout to win the award since its inception in 1994.  The previous Hawks player to win the award was Eric Henderson (2006).

This past season, Roberts guided the Hawks to the WCSSAA Championship title with a 26-13 victory over Resurrection Phoenix. However, his season was cut short as he was injured in the Central Western Ontario Secondary Schools  Association (CWOSSAA)  final against Assumption Lions.

His 2013 statistics were impressive – 66 completions in 125 attempts and 16 passing touchdowns.  Moreover, Roberts amassed 223 rushing yards on 30 carries and seven rushing touchdowns.

The Hawks lead the way with four players named to the WCSSAA senior boys first-team all-star squad.

Roberts made the list along with running back Kevin Pham, linebacker Wyatt Hogan-Crawford and lineman Eric Starczala.

The championship finalist Resurrection Phoenix were next with three selections – receiver Marcus Joseph, lineman Andrew Pickett [CFC TOP 100] and running back Jaedon Herron.
