He set FSU indoor and outdoor marks in the 60, 100, and 200 meter dashes and Metro Conference records in the 100 and 200. Roberson won a gold medal in the 100 meters in the World University Games and was a member of the gold-medal winning 400-meter relay team in the Pan American Games. He led the 1980 team to its best NCAA finish (third) in school history.
