2014 stats and end result: 2,799 pass yards, 33 touchdowns, 5 INT, 1,416 rush yards, 17 touchdowns.
Denton Guyer has been known to produce some high-profile quarterbacks over the past few seasons, and its current signal-caller and TexasHSFootball’s No. 2 Gunslinger Shawn Robinson fits the mold of Guyer quarterbacks to grace CH Collins Stadium.
The first quarterback to make a name for himself at Guyer was J.W. Walsh, son of Guyer head coach, John Walsh. Walsh is currently under center at Oklahoma State and started a few games in 2014. The next was Jerrod Heard, who led the Wildcats to back-to-back state titles in 2012 and 2013. He is now a redshirt sophomore quarterback at Texas, who is in a position battle with last year’s cemented starter Tyrone Swoopes.
Robinson threw just shy of 3,000 yards, ran for nearly 1,500 yards and scored 50 total touchdowns (33 passing, 17 rushing touchdowns) in 2014. The five-star product earned the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback ranking from 247Sports.
His impressive season paid off when Robinson received 16 offers from reputable programs, including Alabama, Ole Miss, Texas, TCU, Texas A&M and USC. On June 26th, the soon-to-be junior verbally pledged to the Horned Frogs via Adam Boedeker of the Denton Record-Chronicle.
After last year’s 58-42 thumping from Southlake Carroll in the Class 6A Division II Region I area round, the 6-3, 207 pounder has one goal in mind this season — a state championship.
“I’m excited to get back to work,” Robinson told Boedeker in June. “Now it’s just about getting better and helping this team get that state title.”
