Zac Robinson’s Ride Into Cowboy Lore
By John Helsley
I’ve got a story in Saturday’s paper, the Game Day edition, weaving together the path that led Zac Robinson to star status with the Cowboys.
Shall we say, it involves some interesting twists.
Zac, while being one of the top prospects in the state of Colorado in 2005, had played just one season at quarterback in high school, doing quite well as a wide receiver before that.
When Larry Fedora joined first-year coach Mike Gundy as OSU’s offensive coordinator, the recruiting of Robinson was just beginning.
“Mike had had him in camp, before I ever got there,” Fedora said this week. “Mike said, ‘Hey, this kid can really run. He’s got great athleticism. And he throws the ball well.’”
Still, Robinson was no sure thing prospect as a quarterback.
