Deerfield Beach Football Star Getting Buzz for Big Game; Another Won't Be Playing
That's the long, long highlight video from Denard Robinson's career at Deerfield Beach High School. Impressive, but no more so than Justin Feagin's highlight reel of a year before. Feagin played at American Heritage, but he's also from Deerfield Beach. Both played quarterback. And both players accepted scholarships to play football for the Michigan Wolverines.
But as the team gets ready for tomorrow's clash with Notre Dame, only Robinson will be wearing that winged helmet. Feagin was kicked off the team this past summer after his name surfaced in a dispute that involved a botched drug deal.
Robinson, who ran for a 43-yard touchdown last week (on the first play of collegiate career), will get snaps at quarterback tomorrow, along with starter Tate Forcier, who form the Wolverines' true freshman quarterback duo.
Yet another Wolverine with ties to Deerfield Beach, cornerback Adrian Witty -- a classmate of Robinson's -- will not be suiting up. He didn't meet the standards for the NCAA clearinghouse.
After the jump, video of Robinson's spectacular debut last week against Central Michigan.
