2010: He played in all 11 games and started in nine. He is the Grizzlies' 10th (tie) leading tackler with 40 stops. He is also an outstanding student, and was named to the All-District 7 and All-Big Sky Conference academic teams with a 3.90 grade point average.
2009: He played in 14 of 15 games (he missed the Cal Poly game due to an injury) and was ranked among the team's top 20 tacklers with 19 stops. He was tied for fourth on the team with five tackles for loss. He was named Big Sky's all-academic team.
Junior College: He was named the "Freshman of the Year" at Mt. SAC, the 2008 national junior college runner-up. His JC coach was Bob Jastrab.
High School: He prepped at Colony High School where he lettered three times in football and twice in baseball. As a senior he was first team all-league and All-San Bernardino County, as well as team captain and MVP as a senior, when he had 87 tackles and 22 sacks for his 11-2 team.
Career Highs: He had 7 tackles against Northern Arizona and at Weber State in 2010.. He had two tackles for loss at Northern Colorado last season. His interception came against Portland State in 2009.
Personal: His major is sociology. His parents are Robert and Elizabeth Alt of Ontario. Birth date: June 27, 1989.
Quoting Coach Pflugrad: "When Severin (Campbell) got hurt against Portland State he had to pick it up, and that's exactly what he did. He was playing good football for us earlier in the season, but when Sev went down Bobby really came on and had a very solid season for us. He carried that momentum over into winter conditioning, and did an outstanding job in the winter. And then again carried that over into spring drills.
"He's a quiet person on and off the field. He's an excellent student with almost a 4.0 cumulative GPA. I think he's going to have an outstanding season and be a quality leader for us as well."
