Quotable: "It's deceiving, deceptive [speed]," Maryville head football coach George Quarles told the Maryville Daily Times. "When he's running the football, especially going downhill, he can cut pretty fast, too. I think that makes him a little bit faster. Tonight, he's the one who asked to run the same play again off the long touchdown run because he knew the keep was there off of it."
"I don't know, I've got to break [the running plays] out every once in a while," Robinette told the Maryville Daily Times. "I think sometimes [opponents] underestimate it, and it's a weapon. It's something that we like to use and I'm glad we get to use it and show it off."
