Efficient Robustelli named team’s offensive MVP in all-star game

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – JU's Andrew Robustelli made the most of his two catches in the recent FCS National Bowl, but his efficiency got him named Most Valuable Player for his team.

Robustelli, a senior from Sarasota, Fla., recently ended his JU career and was happy to get the invite to the all-star game played at Florida International University. He was surprised at getting the MVP award.

"I wasn't expecting it because there was so much talent there,'' Robustelli said. "It was an honor to get it and it was a great experience all around.''

Robustelli, who was a first team All Pioneer Football League selection this season at wide receiver and on the Walter Camp All America team as a junior, had two catches in the game for a whopping 97 yards and two touchdowns. His long catch was 52 yards. He accounted for almost half his team's points in a 41-28 loss.

The game was attended by scouts from 11 National Football League teams, five from the Canadian Football League and 10 from the Arena League.
