Q&A

VYPE: How long have you been playing football and how did you get started?

KR: I have been playing football since I was 4. My mom signed me up for flag football with the Bellaire bears because she said I was too hyper and needed to burn off energy.

VYPE: You came up literally inches short of a title last year. How does that motivate you and the Manvel program entering this Spring season?

KR: It motivated me to inspire my teammates to grind throughout the offseason and fix our mistakes to win the 2018 national championship!!

VYPE: What would you say is the biggest strength to your game? What advantages do you like to create in the trenches?

KR: My biggest strength is my motor! I get after it from the start of the whistle to the end of it. I like to physically dominate my opponents.

VYPE: What are you looking to improve on the most this offseason?

KR: I want to improve my flexibility and technique.

VYPE: You're committed to OU. What were the big factors that went into that decision?

KR: It felt right... from the program to the facility and the coaching staff. It just felt like family

VYPE: What is your favorite subject in school?

KR: My favorite subject is Math.

VYPE: Go-to pregame meal?

KR: Yes, we get all of our pre-game meals from Honore’s Cajun Cafe. Best Seafood in Manvel!

VYPE: Who has had the biggest impact on your football career?

KR: My father/ Kori Roberson Sr. He taught me 99.5% of everything I know about football.

VYPE: Lastly, what is one moment from last season that you are going to remember for the rest of your life?

KR: I just can’t name one moment, but I will give you my top 3.

1) When I had 10 tackles/2 sacks in my first high school game against North Shore.

2) Catching the leading touchdown of our semi-final game against Temple.

3) Running down Highland Park’s quarterback throughout the State Championship game.

The state volleyball playoffs start tonight as area powers prepare for bracket play with hopes of reaching the finals in Garland, Texas.

So, as we are known to do, VYPE is going to boil it down for the fans.

Let's start in Class 6A Region II.

The Woodlands, Klein, Bridgeland and College Park are the Houston headliners coming out of this bracket, however, the 'Kats, Bears and Cavs will have to battle it out in the bottom half of the bracket.

Klein will likely play Bridgeland in Round 2, which could be an epic match-up.

In Class 6A Region III, it's all about Ridge Point and Pearland Dawson, but they would face each other in the Regional Semis. Cinco Ranch could be a spoiler on the top part of the bracket.

The bottom half of the bracket is wide open. Seven Lakes? Cy-Fair? Or Deer Park, maybe?
