Coach Roberts at
Joe Roberts begins his 21st season at the helm of the Armstrong Atlantic State. While at AASU, Roberts has posted an overall 836-374 (.691) record and has established a winning tradition that has resulted in twenty consecutive winning seasons. During his career, Roberts' teams have been consistently ranked among the nation's elite, including a streak of 110 straight weeks in the NCAA Division II Poll, covering seven full seasons.
The 1988, 1989 and 1994 Pirate squads advanced to the NCAA Division II World Series, and the 1990 team was ranked No. 1 in the country for the entire season.
As impressive as Roberts' teams have been on the field, they've been just as impressive in the classroom, with 78 graduates in the past 14 years alone.
Roberts was a four sport letterman at Lebanon (Ind.) HS before attending Lake Sumter CC in Leesburg, Fla. He finished his collegiate career at St. Andrews College in Laurinburg, N.C., where he was again a four sport letterman and a basketball standout, setting several school, conference and NCAA records during a two year career that saw him named All-Conference twice. He was selected the Dixie Conference MVP in his junior year of 1974 and was inducted into the St. Andrews Athletic Hall of Fame in 1995.
The Lebanon, Ind., native is married to the former Lynn Tucker of Port Wentworth. The couple have two sons, Brian, 10, and Eric, 9.
