We have some sad news tonight out of Christian Collegiate Academy where Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Joe Roberts has passed away following his battle with cancer.
Roberts died at the age of 48 on Monday, surrounded by his family.
He was still coaching during the 2019 season, leading the Bulldogs to an overall record of 4-7 as part of MAIS Class 1A District 2 for eight-man football.
Roberts had his best run at CCA during the 2015 season, coming up just one win shy of the school’s first ever state championship with a near perfect record of 12-1.
That capped off a run of three straight district titles led by his son Devan Roberts, the senior quarterback in 2015.
