After a very public transfer from Denton Guyer to DeSoto high school, TCU quarterback commit Shawn Robinson had his welcome to town party on Friday night.
Playing Dallas Jesuit, Robinson rushed for nearly 100 yards and threw for over 250, in a 47-13 win. He scored four combined touchdowns through the air and on the ground. His first play of the game, Robinson connected with KD Nixon on a 53-yard strike – setting the tone for the rest of the night.
“It felt pretty good,” said Robinson. “My line gave me all day to throw and I have four Division 1 receivers, it is too easy.”
Robinson was pulled late in the third quarter. His replacement - a possible Division 1 quarterback in due time.
“We are really blessed to have two really quarterbacks who are learning from each other. We had a true quarterback competition, “ said DeSoto head coach Todd Peterman when asked about Robinson and 2018 prospect Courtney Douglas.
Douglas had a nice performance of his own, finding the end zone twice in the fourth quarter on runs.
“Obviously Shawn is really special, but so is Courtney,” said Peterman. “We will go week to week. Both are talented. But we are going to have one starter. We are not going to rotate quarterbacks.”
Peterman says Robinson has handle the switch in schools well.
“Shawn didn’t want to transfer but Shawn isn’t the head of his household. I understand that, he’s a kid, we are all coaches and most of us have kids,” said Peterman. “He’s come in and the kids have really accepted him. And Courntey and Shawn are close.”
Robinson says he hopes to make multiple TCU games this fall and is planning his official during the week of Iowa State. He has no other plans to visit any other school.
“I’m 110% Horned Frogs.”
