Great news from the SPSL where Gavin Robertson (’16) of Auburn Mountainview picked up an offer from the University of Wyoming.

“I feel blessed to have been offered my first college scholarship,” Robertson told NEI. “I am looking forward to what the future holds for me.”

This is the first offer for the 6-foot-2, 200 pound junior, and one he had been anticipating.

“My football coaches asked if I got a call from Wyoming and I said ‘no,’ ” Robertson explained. “Then while I was out at track practice Coach [Kent] Rodseth pulled me aside and told me to go give the Coach a call at Wyoming. I called Coach Pete {Kaligas] back, and he gave me the offer.”

Robertson is a talented three-sport athlete, also competing in Basketball, but Football and Track are where he really excels. As a sophomore he finished 4th at state in the triple jump, but it was his junior year of football where he really broke out.

As a two-way performer, WR/S, Robertson was honored as an All-Star player by both the Seattle Times and Tacoma News Tribune, after being awarded first team All-SPSL by the 3A coaches.

Last season Robertson finished with 44 catches for 588 yards and six TD’s, but it was his work on defense that has college coaches intrigued. From his safety spot he recorded 99 tackles, 2 INT’s and 7 passes defended. He also returned kicks and punts for the Lions, showing his all-everything ability.

This could be the first of many for the hard hitting safety, as he is also hearing from multiple FCS, Mid-Major and Pac 12 schools. He has visits to Idaho, Montana and Boise State currently scheduled, and will likely be adding to that list in the near future.

We will keep you updated on Robertson, as he looks to be one of the top DB recruits in this year’s class.
