Coach Hall on Jonathan Roberts
"He's a talented senior, a good leader, a good kid, and a hard worker. Jonathan had a tremendous fall and we're letting him hit a little. I think he's a guy who can bring a little power to the table for us. He's put the effort in and I'm hoping he can have the best year he's had."
