Big plays and being a part of the team is what keeps Sage Roberts suiting up every week.

Roberts, a senior slot receiver for the South Walton Seahawks, got the chance to make a couple of big plays last week when he scored the only two touchdowns for the Seahawks in their game against the Blountstown Tigers.

Roberts, who had eight catches Friday night, was on the receiving end of a 17-yard pass from Johnathon Ortner in the middle of the end zone and then later in the game he caught about a 20-yard pass and then took it on in for a 58-yard score.

"I like big plays," Roberts said. "I like looking good and scoring touchdowns and helping the team out. It's always fun," he chuckled.

"Gotta help the team out. These guys are like my brothers,” he added

Roberts, the 17-year-old son of Erika Roberts and stepfather Nick Brokaw, got his first taste of football from family.

"Ever since I was a little kid me and my grandpa would play catch when I would go over to his house," Roberts said. "I always loved to play receiver and catch the ball. It's always been my thing."
