ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Our Albany Area Player of the Week helped his team bounce back from a disappointing loss- and did it when the team needed him most.

Cooper Roberts stepped up for the Knights- with DWS missing a pair of starting running backs.

Roberts answered the bell with 101 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also made a touchdown catch in the Knights' win over Southland.

He got it done defensively as well. Roberts had 5 tackles and a sack.

After doing it all Friday night, Roberts credits his team. He said the group is looking ahead to their next match up.

"The whole team just got on a role and things just started clicking after that," Roberts said. "Now, Tiftarea has a good ball club and we have a good ball club. So, it's going to be a good game Friday night. I hope there is a lot of people there."

Roberts and the Knights are back at home Friday night when they host Tiftarea.
