Brad Roberts has moved forward 3,444 yards during his Air Force career. He also doesn't look backwards. This is as true for a player who doesn't want to think about the past. Roberts stated that he tries to not dwell too much on the past. It's impossible to live in this what-if cycle. Roberts will enter Thursday's Armed Forces Bowl against Baylor (6-6), with 3,425 net yards. Dee Dowis (3.612 yards, 1986-1989) was the only player to have more in Air Force (9-33) history. Asher Clark (3.594 yards, 2008-2011), had more. Roberts missed two games because he was not ill or had contracted the virus. He was out 14 days because of contact tracing protocols. He said that the wait was longer than actually getting COVID. Air Force lost to San Jose State, and Boise State in both of Roberts' missed games. Roberts sees the positive despite the math indicating where he might be on the all time rushing list. Roberts recalled going with the team to Cheez-It Bowl 2019 in his freshman year, when he was not playing in any games. Roberts recalls, "Going to Cheez-It Bowl and watching all those guys before you just cap off victory over Washington State," Roberts stated. He also said that he talked to his freshman year buddies about how he didn't care much about the role he played, he just wanted to be there. My shot was finally given my sophomore year. Everything just exploded. Roberts was a junior in 2021 and ran for 1,352 yards. It was a great year. Hunt tweeted that he would allow concessions for Rhodes Scholars, Marshall Scholars and Truman Scholars and that being drafted into NFL meets the standard that requires an exemption. This is clearly an issue that has not been resolved. Roberts stated that he intends to pursue the NFL. He hopes to be around 215 lbs and run a 4.5 second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day workout. Roberts has also stated that he understood why he signed up for the Air Force. "But I'm extremely thankful for everything that has happened."
