High school football: Imond Robinson helps Norman to win over Yukon
Imond Robinson had 22 carries for 140 yards and two rushing touchdowns as the Tigers defeated Yukon.
NORMAN — Imond Robinson is like a pack of dynamite.
No, he's even more explosive than that.
That's what Norman coach Greg Nation said about his 5-5, 140-pound halfback whose run in the third quarter gave Norman the lead they wouldn't relinquish. The Tigers defeated the Yukon Millers on Friday 34-21 at home.

“I think the big thing was at halftime we went in and kind of decided what are we going to do as a team, what are we going to be, where are we going to come together,” Nation said. “No. 1 thing, we did not get complacent.”
When Robinson stood in the team huddle after the game ended, he called it the best second half of this year. The Tigers scored 17 unanswered points. Nation ran up, a huge grin on his face, and lifted Robinson as the team laughed. Their coach was proud of the win.
“I love being a Norman Tiger,” Nation said.
Nation also said he thought quarterback Zach Long proved what kind of leader he was with his control of the game.
Long went 9-for-12 with one interception but also tucked the ball and ran multiple times, including once for eight yards during the drive that helped put the Tigers ahead.
