LEESBURG - Senior wide receiver Juilliard Roberts, Jr. is one of Leesburg High School's two sport
athletes. As a junior he help lead the Yellow Jackets to their first state basketball title in 34 years. He
is one of the hand full of players on the football team that has a state championship ring.

Roberts is a pure athlete who has excelled in football and basketball. He has stepped up his game in
the absence of University of Miami commit wide receiver D'Mauri Jones, also his teammate on the
2011 FHSAA Class 4A Boys Basketball State Championship team. Roberts has big play ability in
Randy Trivers explosive offense. He has 10 catches for 179 yards this season. He is averaging 17.9
yards per catch and has the ability to out leap defenders to catch the football. Roberts has rushed for
45 yards on 3 carries in 2011 averaging 15 yards per carry. When Roberts gets the football in his
hands good things happen for the Jackets. He has great field vision and follows his blocks with
precision.

He is cool under pressure as evidenced in the 2011 FHSAA Class 4A Boys Basketball State Semifinal
game against Tampa Blake. With Final Four MVP Joe Toolie feeling under the weather and the rest of
the Jacket squad rattled early. Roberts entered the game with lots of energy and poise, he ignited the
rest of the team. Leesburg ended up beating the state #1 ranked class 4A team by 16 points. His
vertical leap allows him to go up high for the football and he has made some spectacular catches this
season. He is one of the reasons why Leesburg is favored to repeat as state champions in basketball
this season. He is no longer under the football recruiting radar. With D'Mauri Jones back in the Jacket
lineup Roberts will no longer see as much double coverage as he had in the first three games of the
season.

Roberts comes from a family of champions, from both his mother and father side of the family. His
father Juilliard Roberts, Sr. help lead the Jackets to their last playoff win in 1992. He played along side
Leesburg legend Oran Singleton and was a part of the 1992 Regional Championship team. Roberts
grandfather is a retired employee of the Lake County School System George Nilblack. His Grandfather
George is the first cousin of Leesburg all time leading wide receiver Greg Williams. Championships
are in his DNA below is a short list of some of his family who have won championships or went to
college on athletic scholarship at Leesburg High School.

Here is a short list of  Roberts family members who have won championships at Leesburg:
