Marana athlete Isaiah Roebuck was offered a preferred walk-on spot with the Arizona football program in January, but he has decided to play baseball and football at the University of Jamestown, an NAIA program at Jamestown, N.D.
Roebuck, 6-foot and 185 pounds, was a nominee for the Ed Doherty Award, which is given to the best high school football player in Arizona. He played two years on the varsity level and tallied 66 receptions for 1,120 yards in 13 games. He also had 10 touchdown receptions.
In his four-year varsity baseball career, he is batting .321 with 72 hits, including 13 doubles and nine triples.
