Roberts, a 2000 graduate, is still one of the most accomplished pitchers ever with the Rams. He was a two-time All-State selection who went on to play at OU and in the Texas Rangers’ organization. Internationally, Roberts was credited with two pitching victories during Team USA’s gold medal in the 1998 Junior Olympics.
His career numbers continue to stack up with any in Owasso’s illustrious history. Roberts tallied 41 career wins, the most among any hurler at the 6A level, with 335 strikeouts in 268 innings. He tossed 36 complete games with a 2.24 ERA. Roberts went 7-1 in eight state tournament starts, including three victories in as many days during Owasso’s run to the 1999 championship. During Roberts four years on varsity, the Rams advanced to the state finals all four seasons and won a pair of titles.
