Hard-Nosed Back Ready For Another Round

While most people do not know that Josh Robinson is an old time country music fan, many know that the bruising back has his own brand of carrying the rock. The redshirt sophomore talks about gearing up for another go as a Mississippi State running back.

Robinson made his first impressions during the spring of his redshirt year, and he then made his presence known with other Bulldog fans last season with his lower the shoulder style of running.

Robinson says he has a unique view of getting back in pads for spring ball.

"I enjoy getting back in pads; I'm like a linebacker playing running back out there. I think it's the Louisiana boy in me that makes me run hard," Robinson said.

The Franklinton, LA product has gained a lot from his year in the SEC. He now looks to make some slight changes in his game to gain more production.

"I'm going to adjust to the game, see the field as best as I can, have my weak points become a little bit stronger and my strong points keep getting better. That's all you can ask for," stated Robinson.

However, these adjustments will not change the competition that Robinson will face throughout his career.

"The SEC has some big men that are future NFL products; there isn't anything better than this conference," Josh said.

With his fellow running backs (Perkins and Milton) and him all having the experience and playing time that they have had, Robinson expects more out of this group.

"We are going to adjust a little better and just make plays. That's what we do," said Robinson.

The redshirt sophomore who averaged 6.1 yards per carry last season added that other factors play a role in his performance at Mississippi State.

"We take pride in everything we do here at State, so we greatly appreciate everything we get: the playing time, the facilities, and other things," Robinson said.
