Chris Robison plays through injury, Horn out

OU quarterback commit Chris Robison's season came to an end in a 42-21 loss Friday night where he played entire second half with a mild sprained ankle.

Mesquite (Texas) Horn quarterback Chris Robison played the entire second half with a mild sprained left ankle, but it wasn’t enough as the Jaguars fell 42-21 to Dallas Jesuit in a first-round UIL playoff game Friday night.

Robison, a Scout 100 recruit for the 2017 class and pledge to Oklahoma, injured himself on a fourth down run on the first play of the second quarter.

Robison rolled out and in reaching for the first down marker, leapt in the air to avoid contact. He earned the first down but was noticeably limping the rest of the way.

Robison was 10-of-16 passing for 95 yards and an interception in the first half when many thought his day would be done.

However, he would play the majority of the second half basically on one leg and attempt to rescue Horn from its 35-0 deficit late in the third quarter.

He finished the game 20-33 for 267 yards and a touchdown.

OU’s other Scout 300 commit for the 2017 class had the opposite Friday night. Safety Robert Barnes and Southlake Carroll knocked off two-time defending champion Cedar Hill 37-33.
