Writers throughout the state sat within the press field at Saddleback Faculty questioning if they’d missed one thing by turning Roderick Robinson and the Lincoln Excessive soccer workforce again.
The Hornets beat Concorde de La Salle 14-7 within the first half of the State Division 1-AA championship sport, and Robinson seemed like a walker.
The second half was fairly completely different as Lincoln received 33–28 and Robinson scored twice on a 32-yard run and thrice.
He completed the sport with 22 carries for 217 yards and 4 touchdowns, and completed the season with 217 carries for two,378 yards and 37 TDs.
Robinson mentioned he was operating at 50% after the De La Salle sport because of a hamstring harm.
And this weekend, after signing a deal to play for Georgia, Robinson was named Mr. Soccer State Participant of the Yr by CalHi Sports activities.
