Throughout the school year, The Washington County Edition will sit down with student-athletes and ask them questions. 

The first in the series is with Eastern’s junior quarterback Austin Roberts, who is the son of Todd and Lisa Roberts.

You got significant time under center last year, how does that help you as you prepare to lead your team this fall? The time under center helped me realize the level of skill that is needed to play at the varsity level.

When you look back at last year and compare your game now, what is the area you feel you’ve improved the most? I have improved the most at my decision making.

What are some individual goals you have set for yourself this season? What must you do to reach those goals? My goals are to improve my game on every level. In order to do that, I have to give 110 percent every day at practice.

Last year you guys struggled, do you think that motivated many on the team to get in the weight room and work hard during the off-season? Has it shown during the summer and the early days of camp? Yes, this is the hardest working team I have been around in my three years of football.

Have you talked about goals as a group? What are some of the things the EHS team hopes to accomplish this year? Yes, our goals are to have a winning season and be the county champs.

Do you have a favorite moment that has happened on the field? My favorite moment was against Corydon when a play got messed up and I got my first rushing touchdown.

Is there an individual moment of play you’d like to have back? If so, why? Our first game against Corydon I made a bad throw and they intercepted it.

When you are not playing football, what do you like to do? When I am not playing football, I hang out with my family and my girlfriend.

Have you thought about what you want to do after high school? Do you hope to play college football? No, I have not decided if I want to play or not.

Finish this sentence, “This will be a great year for the Musketeers if . . .” We work as a team and stay positive. Also, if we give 100 percent every day.
