Mission Viejo is one of the top public school programs in the state and has produced several outstanding collegiate players and a handful of NFL players.

This season is no exception with the Diablos having seven players sign letters of intent to Division 1 schools on the early signing day earlier this month.

One of those players has flown under the radar despite being very productive on the field: running back Jacquez Robertson.

Robertson was the primary running back for a team that had 35 rushing touchdowns and averaged over 35 points per game last season in one of the most competitive leagues in the state.

He rushed for 832 yards on 155 carries with 15 touchdowns in just 12 games, helping lead the Diablos to an 11-1 record.

Robertson would have put up more gaudy numbers, but Mission Viejo’s excellent defense and special teams often created short fields for the offense.

He credits his offensive line, led by Northern Arizona signee Micah Carreon and Arizona signee JT HandJTHand6'3" | OLMission Viejo | 2021StateCA for his success. Robertson also gets to shine because the Diablos had so many playmakers on offense to worry about, like quarterback Peter CostelliPeterCostelli6'3" | QBMission Viejo | 2021StateCA,
