Asa Robertson is a senior at Madill High School, and is an all-around sports guy.

He is on the Madill football team, basketball team, bowling team – who knew Madill had a bowling team – and he runs track.

He has lived in Madill all his life, and consequently, has only attended Madill schools.

Once he graduates, that aspect will change quite a bit for him.

As usual for many seniors, there is one main decision they all have to make; what college to attend.

This was no different for Robertson.

The senior was scouted by five separate colleges for football scholarships – North Texas, Missouri State, East Central University, Southeastern Oklahoma State University and Southern Nazarene.

After much deliberation and careful thought, Robertson decided to sign with Southern Nazarene and pursue a Sports Management degree because the school made an impression on him.

“I like the culture,” Robertson said. “It’s a Christian school, so the culture is what attracted me. They also have a new coaching staff, that impressed me.”

Southern Nazarene University is a private liberal arts college that sits in Bethany, Okla.

Even though Southern Nazarene is a Christian based college, it might be a culture shock for Robertson.

He will be going from a town of approximately 4,000 people to a city with almost 20,000.

Roberston said he is thankful for the help he received along the way during the recruiting process.

“I appreciate Coach Vargas, and all the help he gave me,” Roberton said.

Roberston did not give a timeline for when his signing ceremony will be help.
