Graniteville, SC--It's probably the toughest week of the year to pick an Operation Football Live, McDonald's player of the week. So many worthy candidates. Sometimes we have to look at the whole situation surrounding the ballgame and that came into play in selecting Midland Valley's Jeremy Robinson.
The Mustangs were playing without starting quarterback Marquett Carr this past Friday and it was Robinson who stepped up his game with four touchdowns and 180 yards rushing. Robinson has overcome some injuries to start the year and is back at the Valley after spending a couple of years in Aiken. It's working out just fine.
"I'm very finesse" said Jeremy Robinson "I love the ball in my hands at all times. I'm very creative and the ability, I have it all."
"We knew Jeremy could get the job done all along and missing him for those two and a half games hurt a lot early. But we're hoping we can get him over a thousand (yards) here shortly." added coach Rick Knight
With quarterback Marquett Carr's status still up in the air for this week's showdown with South Aiken, Robinson should again be expected to carry the load until he's stopped.
