Robinson Focused on PassingCowboys quarterback Zac Robinson was the nation’s No. 5-rated passer a year ago, and he’s the NCAA’s fifth-ranked active passer entering this season. Robinson said that’s been a work in progress. A work that continues still. "I think I improved as a passer every year,” Robinson said. "I feel like I’m still developing. Hopefully, I can continue to improve. This year, I feel even better than last preseason throwing. "I always wanted to be a little more accurate, so I worked on that. Anytime as a quarterback, there’s something to work on.”
In Focus: Georgia LB Changing PlacesIn an effort to beef up depth and pass rush at defensive end, Georgia has shifted linebacker Marcus Washington to the defensive front. A senior who has spent three seasons at linebacker, Washington is trying to adapt to the move. "Linebacker was my home,” Washington told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. "I knew it back to front, front to back, left to right. I could teach the young guys. "And then for me to switch positions, all of a sudden I went from teacher to student.”
Linebackers Leading the Way on DefenseWhen Bill Young took over as defensive coordinator last winter, he found some comfort in knowing that his unit would return six starters. As this preseason plays out, he’s found that a common ground is revealing his leaders. "I think all of our linebackers,” Young said. "They’re veteran players. They’ve been there, done that. They’re doing a tremendous job with leadership.” In Patrick Lavine, Andre Sexton and Orie Lemon, the Cowboys have a trio that claims a combined seven seasons of starting experience.
