There’s embarrassment of riches, and then there’s the Guyer quarterback situation.
The Wildcats were set to finally start David Haynes as a senior after he waited behind Jerrod Heard for the past two seasons. Haynes is a guy that’s grown up in the middle school system and has been raved about since he was a freshman by the Guyer coaching staff.
Of course, last year, he showed to be so athletic he became one of the Wildcats’ leading receivers and has interest from several Football Bowl Subdivision schools at both positions.
Then, of course, there’s Kevin Dillman, the Swedish move-in from California who committed to Nebraska last weekend. Behind those two, there’s a move-in from Prosper named David Moore and Austin Luna, who unfortunately broke his wrist in a weightlifting accident on Monday. Now, they’re adding another quarterback to the mix, and it’s a biggie.
Saginaw Chisholm Trail is losing the star of its program, and Guyer is the beneficiary as Shawn Robinson, a 6-3 dual-threat superstar who started at Chisholm Trail as a freshman last season and led the young program to a 3-7 season, will enroll at Guyer on Tuesday, according to Guyer head coach John Walsh.
Robinson is the son of new Guyer girls basketball coach Andrea Robinson, who was hired away from Cedar Hill last month. His father, and Andrea Robinson’s husband, Othell Robinson was Chisholm Trail’s offensive coordinator. He will be hired next week at Guyer as the tight ends coach. According to stats on the Star-Telegram’s website, Robinson threw for 1,123 yards and 11 touchdowns while tossing seven interceptions. He also rushed for 624 yards and six scores — again, as a freshman and on a less than stellar team.
Andrea Robinson won two state titles at Fort Worth Dunbar and went to state another time, then took Cedar Hill to the state tournament in Class 5A.
Robinson was just a freshman this past season but made an impact and is now one of the top college prospects in the still-to-be-determined Class of 2017. Spring football is set to begin at Guyer on April 28, and Haynes is going into the spring as the starter.
