Pete Robertson helped stabilize the Texas Tech Red Raider defense from his linebacker spot well enough to earn honorable mention all-Big 12 honors in 2013. Has played in 28 games in just over two seasons for Texas Tech and at 6-3, 225 pounds, has the size and athleticism to challenge for higher honors in 2014. Robertson has 80 tackles in his career, which include 12 starts from 2013, and 10.5 tackles for loss. With few proven defensive parts for the Red Raiders, Robertson should get a chance to add to his statistics quite nicely in 2014.
Attended Longview High School in Longview, Texas where he was a three-star prospect as a senior. Earned all-state and District 11-5A honors in 2010, where he passed for 1,559 yards and rushed for another 1,159 yards and 13 scores as a quarterback.
Played in three games as a true freshman in 2011 before his season ended through injury. Was granted a medical redshirt season. In 2012, he played in all 12 games and made 20 tackles, had 1.5 sacks and forced a fumble. Earned a starting spot in 2013 and stayed there for all 13 games. He recorded 60 tackles, nine for loss, had 2.5 sacks, four quarterback hurries, two interceptions and forced two fumbles. He was one of 19 players in the Big 12 to return an interception for a touchdown in 2013.
