Jordan Roberts had arguably one the best seasons that a running back could have, as he would run for 284 yards and score 4 touchdowns, helping the Sheridan Broncs win the 4A state championship, 42-14 over Cheyenne East.

Roberts finished the season with an estimated 2,688 yards rushing and 38 TD's, as his team would complete an 11-1 season, and bring home the trophy for the 2nd time in 3 years.

It was the Sheridan air attack that got the first points of the game as Kevin Bakkehaug and Riley Ryan hooked up for a 44 yard strike.  That was on the 2nd play from scrimmage after a 29 yard run by Roberts on first down.

East countered about a minute and half  later as Jeremy Woods took off for 47 yards.   It was their third play from scrimmage.     Woods also provided the only other Thunderbird score in the 4th quarter, but it was between those 2 points in the game when Roberts got to work.

The Bronc would score on runs of 2, 1 and 54 to give his team a 28-7 lead at halftime. He also had another 1 yard score with 1 second left in the third quarter.

Casey Carlton would score on a 37-yard pick 6 not long after the 3rd quarter got underway.

Sheridan easily out-gained East in total yards, 427-272, although the game had quite a lot of penalties, as the 2 teams combined for 18 flags, for 202 yards.
