Zac’s Ready… Now
By John Helsley
The long, tedious rite of August has reached its end. Which means only one thing: Game week.
And Saturday can’t get here soon enough for Cowboys quarterback Zac Robinson.
“I’m ready to kick this off right now,” Robinson told us Monday. “It’s been a long time. I know guys are excited. If we could play tomorrow, I’d be all about it.”
One reporter asked Robinson if that made this a long week. To the contrary, the QB said, the promise of Saturday makes this a welcome week.
“I wouldn’t say a long week,” Robinson said, “but now that it’s Monday and getting to a game routine, it’s going to be fun knowing that we’re that much closer to playing a game. I’m hoping it goes back fast and Saturday is here before we know it.”
Robinson, who missed several workouts to a sore leg two weeks ago, said he’s ready to go full speed.
“Last week was really the first week that I cut it loose on some runs,” Robinson said. “I kind of opened it up a little bit and I’ll continue to do so more this week. I feel fine running and obviously, it’s a whole lot different for a quarterback who hasn’t been hit since last season. Once that first hit comes, I’ll be ready to go.”
Robinson seems relaxed, confident and comfortable leading the Cowboys ahead into arguably the most meaningful season opener in school history.
That complete poise is one of the things that makes him so good. Robinson never panics, never flinches and never lets you see him sweat, if he does at all.
And he does it humbly, which makes it even more appealing.
