Senior Josh Robinson started at defensive end for El Reno last season but is moving to linebacker this year. The Indians hope to improve on last year's 3-7 season.

Q: What football game on El Reno's schedule do you look forward to the most and why?

Carl Albert. They are a real tough team to beat and it's always a challenge to play them.

What football drill do you hate the most?

The County Fair. You run around and do a bunch of running drills to get into shape. It's like a big ol' cycle of running and doing drills. It's nonstop and not much fun.

What has been your favorite high school football moment?

Just becoming a senior and taking a lead over the team, having most of the team looking up to you.

What is your favorite football movie?

“Varsity Blues.” I just like the characters. They were funny. They reminded me of all my friends and playing football in El Reno.

What is your favorite thing to do other than playing football?

I show pigs in the FFA, and that is probably my second favorite hobby. You get to meet a lot of people in the FFA, learn leadership skills and it's just a lot of fun.

What was the best summer movie, “The Avengers” or “The Dark Knight Rises”?

The Avengers. I am not real big into Batman.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I would like to have super strength so I could run over people on Friday nights. It would help out.

What is the best and worst thing they make in your school cafeteria?

The best is probably pizza. The meat loaf is the worst. It's not very good at all.
