Robbie was one of the most prolific quarterbacks from Roseville High School.  He set numerous passing records in his time with the Tigers. He then received a scholarship to BYU where he is regarded in high esteem with the many great quarterbacks from that university.

In 1984, Bosco took over as starting quarterback after the graduation of Steve Young.  In his first season as a starter, he led the Cougars to a perfect 13–0 record. BYU finished the season by defeating Michigan  24–17, in the Holiday Bowl, clinching the school's first and only national championship.

Robby completed 283 of 458 passes for 3,875 yards and 33 touchdowns during the 1984 season.  He led the nation in passing yardage, and finished second, behind Doug Flutie in pass efficiency.  He finished third in the voting for the Heisman Trophy.

In Bosco's senior season (1985), he threw for 4,273 yards (the second-highest total in BYU history at the time, behind Jim McMahon) while tossing 30 touchdown passes.  He finished his BYU career with 10 NCAA records, and was third in voting for the 1985 Heisman Trophy.

In 1986, he was a third round NFL draft pick by the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately his professional career was limited to two seasons due to a shoulder injury.  After his playing career he returned to BYU as a coach and administrator.  Robby will always be remembered as one of the greatest high school and college quarterbacks of all time while being a Heisman Trophy finalist two times.
