Cam Robinson Chief of Security For Alabama’s Blind Side

Security of the ball is the preeminent goal of every football team. A shade beneath the ultimate objective is protecting the quarterback. Cam Robinson has measured up to the task since day one of his Alabama football career. He was the first true freshman to start at the left offensive tackle position in the Nick Saban era.

Cameron Robinson Robinson earned First Team Freshman All-America honors in 2014.  He garnered First Team All-SEC honors as a sophomore from the conference coaches and Associated Press.  He was one of two returning starters on the offensive line for the Alabama Crimson Tide this season.  The 6-6, 326 pound Monroe (LA) native must contend with the best pass rusher on the Michigan State Spartans squad, three-time Second Team All-American Shilique Calhoun.  

Ranked among the all-time leaders for the Spartans , he is second in school career sacks with 27, first in yardage for loss (-267 yards for loss), second in sack yardage (-211 yards for loss), fourth in tackles for loss (43.5).  A phenomenal 34 percent of the 6-5, 250 pound defensive end’s 127 career tackles have been for losses.  Calhoun has a team leading 10.5 sacks (-74 yards for loss) and 14.5 tackles for loss (-81 yards for loss) in 13 games this season. 

Alabama has surrendered 19 sacks for 145 yards thus far after 13 games.  Collectively the Spartans have registered 35 sacks (-227 yards for loss), tied for 18th nationally.   Left tackle Robinson and his offensive line cohorts intend to shield the Tide quarterback in the pocket from anyone wearing green and white.

Watch and listen to Robinson discuss the Michigan State Spartans, quarterback Jacob Coker, running back Derrick Henry, wining the inaugural Joe Moore Award given to the most outstanding offensive line in the nation and the "business trip" to the Cotton Bowl Classic.
