Who we are

We are Team 987 - The High Rollers from Cimarron-Memorial High School located in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Our Team started building robots in 2002 and we have been building them ever since. Our team motto is: "It's Not Enough!" and that says it all. School days, weekends, after-hours, or summer break, we never stop building, improving, or challenging ourselves in preparation for the next competitive season.  When we fail, we do MORE. When we succeed, we do MORE. Why? That's simple:

                       "It's Not Enough!" 

What we do

We build world-class robots to compete with and against more than 80,000 high school students from 3,225 teams from around the world in the FIRST® Robotics Competition!


These exciting, challenging, and STEM-centric events are made possible by the FIRST® organization ("For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and  Technology"), created by the inventor, entrepreneur, author, and speaker, Mr. Dean Kaman, with inspiration and assistance from MIT Professor Emeritus,      Dr. Woodie Flowers, PhD. (Wikipedia, 2002)

Why we do it

We do it because it's FUN, challenging, and extremely cool to build world-class, fully functional robots capable of competing against other robots and teams from countries all over the world. We collaborate with team members from other counties and share our ideas about engineering, mathematics, design, and fabrication in a supportive and mentored environment called the FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC).

Highroller members win 

The Shop Award


The Shop Award was created to recognize those team members who made a significant contribution improving, rebuilding, and maintaining the Robotics Shop so we have an optimal build environment for the season. Contribution to building the field elements for a game season is included, plus any other special projects assigned to the Shop. The Shop Awards do not include contributions to the robot build but it doesn’t exclude those team members if they make contributions to the Shop too.

Three tiers of The Shop Awards: Shop Helper, Shop Assistant, and the Right-Hand Man award. Occasionally the Special Right Hand Man is awarded to recognize the individual who far exceeds the expectations of the coaches and mentors in one or more areas of Shop improvement.

Shop Helpers receive a personalized certificate for their efforts in at least one major area.

Shop Assistants receive a personalized certificate and gold seal for their efforts in two or more areas.

The Right-Hand Man winners receive a personalized certificate hand-signed by the coaches and mentors, gold seal, and a new team hat with “Right-Hand Man” embroidered onto the back.

Winners of the Right-Hand Man Special Award receive the same features as the RHM awardees mentioned above but their hat is personalized with their name to further distinguish themselves for current and on-going projects which they complete with little to no guidance from coaches and mentors.

                 Congratulations to the winners of  The Shop Award for the 2023/2024 season.
