Zycorrian Robinson: A True Two Sport Star

Spartanburg High School boasts one of the upstate's premier athletes in Zycorrian Robinson. A big play wide receiver for the football team and a dynamic scorer for the basketball team Robinson is hearing from one D1 school but awaits more interest. Come inside for more on "Z-Man"

You can't judge a book by it's cover and such is the case with Spartanburg High School's Zycorrian Robinson. Standing 5'10 and 153 pounds he would appear to be your average teenager to most but Robinson is truly one of the upstate's very best all-around athletes. Robinson suits it up for both the Vikings football and basketball teams, the results are usually strong play resulting in big stats and usually a Viking victory.

Zycorrian is known to his friends and family as "Z-Man" and SCPrepNation.com caught up with "Z-Man" for an update on his current season on the hardwood. Robinson teams with fellow junior standout Omar Sanders to provide the Vikings with one of the strongest 1-2 punches in the area. Currently the Vikings are currently in 1st place in Region II-AAAA with a record of 13-4 overall and 5-1 in region play.

Robinson had this to say about his knack for scoring, "I feel like getting to the rack and scoring whenever I need to are probably my strengths. If we need a big bucket I can go get it. There are some parts of my game that I want to work on. I need to improve my passing and decision making with the ball."

Currently averaging 16 points per game Robinson provides the strong perimeter complement to Sanders' inside presence and so far the Vikings are playing well. Just a junior Robinson is already hearing from a D1 school on a regular basis. "Right now Ole Miss is recruiting me pretty hard. They're recruiting me harder than anybody else. I like Winthrop and South Carolina too though."

An strong offensive performance against Hillcrest Robinson says is his best game to date. "Yeah my best game would probably have to be against Hillcrest when I scored 25 points, had 5 steals, and hit every one of my free throws. That was the best one so far."

An impending showdown with region foes Gaffney comes up tomorrow for the Vikings. They will look to "Z-Man" and Sanders for leadership to try and keep their winning ways in the region race. SCPrepNation.com will bring you the latest in this much anticipated matchup between these Region II-AAAA powers.
