Wildcats News · Robles to Play Football at Trine University!


The signings keep rolling for the Mt. Vernon Wildcat Class of 2018!  The most recent addition to this group of senior athletes is defensive specialist, Anthony Robles!

Anthony has played on both sides of the ball, but his passion has been on defense where he will be playing a defensive back for the Trine University Thunder.  Anthony, a 3-time varsity letter winner, has accumulated 53 solo tackles, 24 assisted tackles, 4 interceptions, 9 tackles for loss and has had 12 pass break ups for which he has been recognized by the coaching staff.  This past year, he was a game MVP one time, he has twice received the “Big Hitter Award” and he was the “Defensive Back of the Year.”

Trine is a very successful D-III college located in Angola, IN.  The Thunder are coached by Head Coach Troy Abbs and for the third time in program history, they posted an undefeated regular season and won their 4th MIAA Championship.

Anthony plans to obtain his MBA while at Trine University.  He would like to thank his teachers and coaches at MVHS for helping him along the way.

We invite you to join us on Thursday, 5/17 to celebrate his signing at 3:15 pm in the MVHS Athletic Foyer.

Congratulations, Anthony & best of luck as a member of the Trine University Thunder!
