TAHLEQUAH — Regardless of who takes over at quarterback, Robinson wants his quarterbacks to make it a habit of finding Powell early and often.
“He’s fun to work with,” Robinson said. “That’s our first target we’re looking for, and that’s what I’m teaching the quarterbacks right now. You’re in man coverage and you’re going with the best look, that’s probably who you’re going to. We’ve got to get some younger guys to step up in that position. There’s some talent there, but somebody needs to grab it.”
Northeastern State will conclude its spring drills with three practices this week. And there’s still plenty that Robinson will be looking for in the final week in pads.
“We’re going to look to see where they can go now,” Robinson said. “We stayed base, base, base, but we’re going to try and amp it up a little bit. We want to see what they can handle. That’s the biggest thing that I’ve noticed coming in here: they’re not a common sense football team of just understanding things. So we’re starting from the ground up — just understanding the little things.”
