Roberts, who went 1-2 at the 2007 NCAA Championships for Boston University, pinned second-ranked Darrion Caldwell of North Carolina State in the second round of the Southern Scuffle. He capped his six-win march to the title by edgeing top-ranked Dustin Schlatter of Minnesota 3-2 in the finals. Schlatter won an NCAA title in 2006.

Roberts was a New York state champion in high school and won Junior Nationals in Greco-Roman in 2004.
