Learn more about “Performance Player of the Month” Jordan Roberts in the media player at the top of this report.

Roberts, a point guard for the Flyers, is also the son of head basketball coach Tyler Roberts. Although they’re strictly coach and player on game day, after games, they enjoy a close father-son relationship. And Roberts has great chemistry with his teammates, most of whom he’s been playing with since as early as third grade.

Roberts currently leads the nation in assists for boys basketball, with an average of 11 per game. He scored a career-high 29 points against Snow Canyon High School during his junior year and has already scored 20-plus points in three games this season.

“It means a lot because of how much work I put in, but I can’t do it without my teammates,” he said. “I’ve got the best teammates in the state, even in the country, in my opinion.”

His game style is inspired by Allen Iverson, Steve Nash and Steph Curry, among others. When he’s not playing, he likes to get outdoors to hunt and fish. He also loves wakesurfing during the summer.

Roberts plans to continue his basketball career after graduation, having already committed to play for Snow College in Ephraim. But for the time being, he’s focusing on the rest of his senior season and cherishing every moment.

“Don’t get ahead of yourself,” he said. “Put the work in and have no regrets, because it goes by so fast. I think high school basketball has been the funnest thing I’ve done in my entire life.”
