Roper said he was proud of himself and his teammates.

“We knew we had a tough opponent—Diablo Valley came out to play—but throughout the game we battled hard. It was a great team win,” Roper said. “I made two touchdowns all thanks to the team. We needed that win. At the end of the day we needed to score— we needed that victory. Looking forward to the rest of the season. It’s all up from here.”
