Montgomery County High School Athlete of the Week

Landon School senior Chase Robertson put on a show in the Bears’ 21-14 win over Episcopal High School Saturday. Using the word “versatile” to describe his performance would be quite an understatement.

On the defensive side, Robertson got in on 12 tackles, four of them solo and eight assisted with one tackle for loss. He added two quarterback pressures, and most impressively, an interception that the senior returned 48 yards for a touchdown.

Offensively, Robertson recorded his first reception of the season, and made sure to make it count. The catch resulted in a 38-yard touchdown which gave the Bears their second touchdown of the game.

As if playing both offense and defense wasn’t enough, Robertson also contributed on special teams, making all three of the team’s extra points.

In addition to being versatile on the football field, Robertson is versatile as an overall athlete as well. He’s a three-sport athlete, also playing basketball and lacrosse, and is committed to play D-1 lacrosse at the University of Utah next year.

Outside of athletics, Robertson likes to play handbells, a musical instrument, in his free time, which he has done since middle school.

The future Ute is well-rounded both on and off the field. Robertson has also volunteered with the Young Men’s Service League throughout his high school career.
