The rising senior had a phenomenal junior campaign that fell just short in the playoffs, but still finished by leading his team to an 8-3 record on the year.
Roper’s final stats on the year included nearly 2,200 yards passing with 23 touchdowns on the year, with just 9 interceptions. Roper finished the year with a QBR of 102.4
Roper also showed off the wheels, as he ran for just under 300 yards on the year, in addition to 2 rushing touchdowns, showing off his versatility in what is referred to the SEC of high school football, region 7A in Georgia.
Roper was also responsible for one of the best games of the year, as he lead his team from a 17-point deficit in the playoffs against Mill Creek, to a playoff victory!
Against Cherokee, Roper was able to lead his team to a come-from-behind win as well, and that earned him the Georgia Cotton Commission player of the game award for his outstanding performance.
Roper also earned Roswell player of the week honors and a GPB Player of the Game Award.
Roper received an invitation to play in the Georgia Elite Classic game that will be held December 18-20, 2020. Roper will be one of two quarterbacks in the entire state to compete in the game.
Standing at 6’3, 205 pounds, Roper has the size that coaches look for in a quarterback at the next level.
The impressive young man does not stop there, as he has a squat max of 375 pounds! Not bad for a signal-caller!
I wanted to know how Roper felt about his season, and the gutsy performances that he put out on the year.
“It was a great season,” Roper said. “I was able to play with some very talented players this season. Some of those players will be playing Division 1 football in their futures. I am just excited for what is next.”
Aside from all of the impressive stats and the invitations to big time camps and games, I wanted to know what makes Roper standout, from his point of view.
“I have the ability to be a dual-threat quarterback,” Roper said. “In fact, I have been all of my life. This year, we had an offense that required me to stay in the pocket more and go through my progressions. I feel like that helped me to become more of a polished player.”
“Staying in the pocket also helped my teammates, because it gave the wideouts time to get open, and the blockers time to block. It really made a difference and I feel like it will get better next season.”
Defenses beware of Roper next fall!
Roper understands the importance of a quality education, and he currently holds a 3.7 GPA.
That impressive GPA is gaining interest from some of the top schools in the country, with the likes of Harvard, Columbia, Yale, Dartmouth and Lehigh all showing interest in the highly-touted quarterback.
While Roper does not currently have an offer, we feel that a school will pull the trigger on the signal-caller very son!
