The Norman running backs, along with quarterback Zach Long, comprise a formidable trio in the backfield that has been successful after standout Donovan Roberts graduated.

“I think we're kind of a three-headed monster now with Long, Hines and Robinson,” Norman coach Greg Nation said. “It's kind of like who's going to have the game tonight? Fortunately, it's kind of moved around a little bit.”

And next week it will have to move around between all three against No. 10 Lawton High.

The game will decide the second spot in District 6A-4, if Lawton beats Mustang on Friday.

“Coming out after losing last week, bouncing back like this really gives us a little bit of momentum,” Robinson said. “and we've just got to carry that and make sure we do our thing next week.”
