Robinson Enjoys TCU Visit

Bellaire Episcopal quarterback Austin Robinson enjoyed his visit to watch TCU beat Grambling 56-0.

TCU opened their 2012 season this past Saturday inside their new digs and won in impressive fashion; a 56-0 victory over Grambling.

There wasn't much the Frogs did wrong on the night.

A bonus for the Frogs was several recruits were there to witness the action. Among the recruits in the stands to watch the game was Bellaire Episcopal 2013 signal caller Austin Robinson. From the fireworks, to the jets, to the energy from the stands and the play on the field; Robinson was impressed with everything.

"I thought it was pretty awesome," Robinson said of the TCU game. "The game wasn't really fair but it was a great experience. The quarterbacks were real accurate and precise; you could tell they've spent a lot of time practicing. Even the backup looked good. They were impressive."

"I was really impressed; everybody was there and in full support. I was impressed with the students, they went crazy. The stadium was nice, I was up there this past summer but it wasn't complete; I didn't think it was going to look that nice, it was awesome."

Robinson was joined on the trip by his mother and father and said like him, his folks were very impressed with everything they saw at TCU.

"They loved it," he said. "Mom, she loves the academics and athletics and dad likes the academics and athletics. But, my mom thinks the small classrooms are phenomenal, she thinks it's a good school. They love it; they were really impressed with The Opening with the fireworks, jets and the jetpack. It was awesome."

Plenty of recruits made their way to the game and many of them stood on the sideline during pre-game warm ups. Robinson said he felt he received plenty of attention from the staff both before and after the game.

"I felt like I had a lot of eyes watching, a lot of attention," he said. "I felt like they're getting closer to a decision and I feel like I may be that guy. They said they would be down for a game for sure and they're really excited about it."

Robinson said he had the opportunity to speak with both his recruiter, Eddie Williamson and the quarterbacks coach, Rusty Burns.

"I talked to both of them for a long time and I talked to Coach Patterson for about two seconds and told him congratulations," Robinson said. "He told me he'd be in contact so we'll see what happens."

Bellaire is off to a 1-1 start after beating Westbury Christian 47-14 last week. Robinson has passed for 133 yards and 1 TD and rushed for 129 yards and 2 more scores on the ground in two games.

"We're 1-1; we lost our first game in Minnesota. There were a lot of opportunities we didn't take advantage of. We won Friday night by a large margin, the guys had a new sense of direction playing in front of the home crowd, and it's real inspirational. We did really phenomenal, I didn't have to do too much on my part, I did a little bit of running, didn't do much passing."

Robinson feels his chances of receiving a TCU offer are becoming greater. He admits that if the Frogs do in fact come through with an offer, there stands a good chance that he would waste little time accepting the opportunity to play for the Frogs.

"There's a high chance I would commit there," he said. "They're phenomenal; they feel like a bigger BHS which I love. I feel like I have a lot of support there from my friends and colleagues that go there. I feel like it's a second home for me."

Robinson and his Bellaire Episcopal teammates travel north to take on Ft. Worth Trinity Valley, led by Austin Henyon, this Friday.
