2017 Accomplishments: If a box score showed that the Tigers were victorious on Friday night, Roper was likely a big reason for it. He rushed for over 2,600 yards and scored 38 total touchdowns in 2017.

How successes and failures will drive him for the 2018 season: “This is the first year that I’ve had serious offseason training for the upcoming year. One thing I’ve learned is that stuff pays off.”
