Robertson signs with Northwestern State

Hayden Robertson, DeQuincy High School senior, committed to run track and cross country at Northwestern State University on Thursday, May 4.

Robertson is one of the most well-rounded runners in DeQuincy High School’s history.

He holds two district cross country titles, three 800 meter district titles, a leg on three district and two regional champion 4 x 200m teams, a leg on three district champion 4 x 400m teams, a leg on one state runner-up 4 x 200m team and one state runner-up 4 x 400m team, as well as leg on the 2016 State Champion 4 x 400m team.

As a starter in basketball his freshman year and set to start on the football field his sophomore year, he turned in the round ball and cleats for track spikes and concentrated fully on the asphalt.

“The commitment and sacrifice has paid off, I have worked hard to get to this point, it hasn’t been easy, but I am ready to compete at the next level,” Robertson said.

He has a 3.96 GPA and will receive a mix of athletic and academic scholarships from NSU. While attending college he will be majoring in Business Administration.

Robertson is the son of NSU alumnus Joe and Ruth Robertson, and the grandson of Carla and the late Jimmy Robertson and Dan and Beverly Rhodes.
