Coyote continues family tradition in sports


Coyotes head coach Mark Osina said Roberson is a great addition to the program both athletically and emotionally as the coach tries to rebuild the program. Osina, who once led the team to national prominence, returned to the helm this season after having been gone several years.

“He’s the kind of guy I like to have around,” Osina said. “You can tell as he matures, he’s only going to get better.

“And he’s a great teammate. He comes from a big family that’s very close--just nice people.”

While they are very spread out, Roberson said he is in constant touch with some member of this family.

“I text my brother and sisters all the time. Plus, we all have iPhones, so that face time is good,” said Roberson.

“We’re very close. We always keep each other up to date. No one’s closer than family.”

Between keeping in contact with his family, school, and of course basketball, there’s not much room for hobbies. However, Roberson said he does love watching Netflix and playing video games online - usually with his brother.

While they all went into sports, he said none were pressured by their parents to do so.

“My parents decided to let us follow our own path, we just decided on our own it would be sports,” said Roberson. “They are very encouraging of everything we do, though, no matter what it is.”

His father teaches computer classes at Wagner now, and his mother is the attendance clerk at the school. They both previously coached after their playing days, which is something Anthony, who is working on a kinesiology degree, is also considering.

“I want to teach the game. I love it so much,” he said.

But first he’d like to follow his siblings into the professional ranks.

“That’s the ultimate goal,” he said. “If I keep pushing, at the end of the day, hopefully I’ll get there.”

In the meantime, he has two younger sisters who are just beginning to learn how to play sports - and he plans to help them along the way. Arianna is 7 and Aalyah is 9.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
