Plant TE Roberts transferring to Carmel (Ind.)

Plant High’s football team wins most and seldom loses. In the case of sophomore tight end Austin Roberts, however, they’re losing a very good one.
The 6-foot-2, 185 pound Roberts, who had something of a breakout game for the Panthers in their Class 8A state championship game against Miramar with three catches for 32 yards, is transferring to Carmel High in Indianapolis. Roberts confirmed he was making the move Wednesday while competing in the Class 4A-District 6 track meet at Leto.
The move comes as a result of his father, Alfredo Roberts, who has left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coaching staff to take a job coaching tight ends for the Indianapolis Colts.
Austin Roberts is leaving the four-time state champion Panthers football program and is enrolling at Carmel, which last fall won its seventh Indiana state football championship when it knocked off Penn High School in the in the Class 5A title game.
For the season, Roberts finished with 14 receptions for 280 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a 72-yard kickoff return for a TD against Brandon.
