Virginia Football great Ray Roberts: On blocking for Barry, Chris Slade, Tony Elliott

Virginia alum Ray Roberts blocked for Barry Sanders for three seasons. Blocking for Barry Sanders: a thankless job. “With Barry, you can do, well, if you’d like to, Barry, we’re going to block in a way that you should go to the inside hip of the tackle, but hey, we’re going to get you the ball, you do what you do,” said Roberts, a 1991 All-American offensive lineman at Virginia, who was taken with the 10th pick in the first round of that spring’s NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks.

Ray Roberts, Dana Siler and Harry Hochheiser: Carbon tax can pay off for working families

West Virginia may seem a world away from Pittsburgh, but the similarities are greater than the differences. We share a common natural landscape marked by the Ohio River and beautiful forests, streams, and mountains — the best that our Appalachian region has to offer. We also share the legacy of bygone industries: lingering pollution, the disappearance of good jobs and the economic difficulties that have hollowed out many communities.

Summer bass patterns on Ray Roberts

This story originally appeared in the July 9 issue of LSON. If you like to work the typical summer bass fishing pattern of going deep to catch structure-oriented largemouths, Lake Ray Roberts is a place to be. This lake is also known for its offshore summer fishing bonanza in water that’s 20 to 35 feet deep.

Flipping and flopping at Ray Roberts

This lake has the reputation of being hot one day and cold the next. Throw in an unexpected thunderstorm that caused a two-hour delay to today’s takeoff and you’ve got the formula for the unexpected. At 12:30, yesterday’s leaders, Steve Kennedy and Patrick Walters, who were separated by only 9 ounces, have fallen to 6th and 8th place, respectively. Both have two keepers weighing 3-plus pounds.

All scenarios possible at Ray Roberts

FORT WORTH, Texas — Last year when Hank Cherry won the Bassmaster Classic he weighed 29 pounds, 3 ounces, on Day 1 and never fell out of first place on the way to a wire-to-wire win on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville. The last time the Classic was held in Texas, on...

Ray Roberts fish few and far between

Anglers met up at the angler registration and, of course, talk turned toward what each experienced in their three days of practice Friday through Sunday. A group of (from left) Drew Cook, Matt Herren, Brad Whatley and Frank Talley chatted for a bit in the Omni Hotel in downtown Fort Worth. Like most all Texas fisheries, the 29,000-acre lake an hour north has big bass, but they commented it’s not loaded with fish and finding bites has been inconsistent, even sporadic.
