Early life and education

Roberts was born in Buffalo, New York, to Jack and Rosemary Roberts. His father, Jack Roberts, Sr., was an executive at the Bethlehem Steel Corporation. Roberts's family moved to Long Beach, Indiana, an affluent town on the coast of Lake Michigan, when Roberts was in second grade.

He graduated first in the class of 1973 from La Lumiere, a small Catholic boarding school near LaPorte, Indiana. He studied six years of Latin and some French and was known for his devotion to his studies. He was co-captain of the football team and described himself as a "slow-footed linebacker." He also wrestled, was co-editor of the school newspaper, served on the athletic council and served on the Executive Committee of the Student Council. He also took part in choir and drama.

1. A Slow Footed Linebacker?
Think about how this will play in the International Supreme Court Rugby Meet? We could be humilated by Cameroon once again!

2. Interesting
His father, Jack Roberts, Sr., was an executive at the Bethlehem Steel Corporation

So when Bush mentioned that Roberts took a summer job working at the steel mill, he didn't say his dad got him the job and that he most assuredly wasn't doing the kind of work you would have first thought.
