Shawn Robinson

Robinson is ranked the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and when you watch him play there is no question as in why. He was a man among boys playing in the 7on7 yesterday. Last season at Denton Guyer he had 1,474 yards (98-of-221 attempts) and 11 touchdowns with 8 interceptions, while rushing for 1,678 yards and 18 scores.

Desoto stayed undefeated and won their pool bracket yesterday. They will move on to the championship bracket and play Arlington at 9am. That is no surprise though because Robinson was making 45 yard passes for a touchdown look like a walk in the park. He is definitely going to be a great player to keep up with in the next few years at TCU.

After their first win yesterday I caught up with him to get his thoughts on 7on7 and TCU. 

How does 7on7 help you prepare for the season?

“It helps me a lot. It helps me get in sync with the receivers and learn the offense better since I am new to the team. So it definitely helps.”

What made you choose TCU?

“First and foremost my relationship with the coaching staff and being able to fit that offense. What they do with their quarterbacks and the school itself with academics. All of that played a factor in my decision.”

What are you most looking forward to at TCU?

“Just getting up there, getting better, and working out with those guys.”

Blumrick, who’s 6-foot-6 and 205 pounds, is the No. 40 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2017 and threw for nearly 1,500 yards last season for Pearland. Watching him yesterday you could tell he is used to having command of the field. He stayed calm under pressure and was not afraid to throw it down the field. His receivers didn’t always help him out but the throw was dead on almost every time.

The oilers also won their pool bracket yesterday and will move on to the championship bracket. They will face O’Connor at 9am to get their bracket play started.

I got to catch up with him as well to talk about 7on7 and Texas A&M.

How does 7on7 help you prepare for the season?

“It gets my feet right. It helps the whole team with timing, tempo, and coverages. So It is great that we get to come out here and do it” 

What is your favorite part about 7on7? 

“Being here with the best teams in the state. Competing, having fun, and being out here with my team.”

What made you choose Texas A&M?

“It is the greatest school in Texas and I think in the nation. So I am very blessed I have an opportunity to play there.” 

Do all the quarterbacks recently leaving make you nervous about A&M?

“No because I know Coach Sumlin and I very comfortable with him and all the other coaching staff as well. I am just ready to get up there and compete.”
