Robison Having Big Year

Mesquite (TX) Horn 2017 quarterback Chris Robison is having a huge sophomore campaign.

Mesquite (TX) Horn is one of the toughest teams in the DFW this season, sporting a 7-1 record and perfect 5-0 mark in district 10-6A.

The Jaguars have also already secured a berth into the playoffs.

Horn has been led by a strong offense that averages 479 yards per game. Headlining that impressive offense is first-year starter, sophomore Chris Robison.

The 2017 prospect is among the area’s leaders for quarterbacks, completing 123-of-216 passes for 2,186 yards, 26 touchdowns to only 7 interceptions.

Robison led his team to the playoff-clinching win over North Mesquite last Friday by accounting for five touchdowns in the Jaguars’ 43-19 victory. On the night Robison completed 15-of-24 passes for 282 yards and 4 touchdowns and added 57 yards and another score from 17-yards out on the ground.

“It was a tough win; we didn’t do too well in the first half but we came out in the second half and played as hard as we could and came out with the win,” Robison said.

Robison displayed the abilities of a dual-threat quarterback against North Mesquite by escaping the rush and gaining long yardage on zone reads. The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder was quick to give credit to his blockers.

“I couldn’t do it without the line and the receivers I have,” he said. “On my rushing touchdown one of my receivers had the best block I could possibly have.”

Already ranked as an early four-star prospect by Scout.com, Robison currently holds a TCU offer and is starting to garner more Big 12 interest in recent weeks.

Baylor has come and talked to me and Oklahoma is talking about me a lot,” he said. “I’m getting out to Baylor’s homecoming game. I’m also trying to get up to Oklahoma. Both have been keeping interest in me each and every day.”

The Frogs offered Robison nearly three months ago after an impressive one-day camp on TCU’s campus. Robison said receiving the offer was a result of the hard work he’s putting in each day.

“It was just a blessing because I’ve worked really hard at getting better each day,” Robison said of the TCU offer.

Robison has communicated mostly with Frogs’ receivers coach Rusty Burns and quarterback coach Sonny Cumbie. The signal caller has built a good relationship with both; particularly Cumbie.

“He’s a nice dude, our relationship is good; we talk a lot,” Robison said of Cumbie.

Robison also likes what he’s seen so far from the Frogs’ explosive offense, which ranks second in the nation at 573 yards per game.

“I like the spread offense and they pass the ball a lot,” he said. “That’s what I like.”
