Playing at a college known for its rushing game, Jesse Roberts became the first real wide receiving threat in PCC history in 1972. A First Team All-American, Roberts played on a Lancers team that finished 12-1, won the Metropolitan Conference title and reached the Potato Bowl as PCC closed out the season just one win short of the state championship.

He caught then Lancers single-season records for most receptions at 59 and most receiving yards with 1,205, averaging an impressive 20.4 yards a catch.

He is still #3 on the PCC all-time list for most receiving yards in a career with 1,437. Roberts helped quarterback Rick Holoubek set the then PCC passing yards record. He earned a scholarship to University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
