Robinson ready for LSU/Bama

Cameron Robinson

Five-star offensive tackle Cameron Robinson (West Monroe, LA), the country's second-ranked junior prospect, talks about the Tigers and Tide and more inside...

LSU and Alabama are the two programs always mentioned by Cameron Robinson, who will get the chance to see the bitter SEC West rivals square off Saturday.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the two offensive lines play," Robinson said. "Both LSU and Alabama have such dominant defensive lines; it will be interesting to see how the o-lines do.

"I know Bama has one of the best offensive lines, and LSU's defensive line has been missing a couple of starters. The key (for Alabama) is for them to keep doing what they've been doing. For LSU, the key could be establishing the passing game to keep Alabama's defense from overloading the box."

Robinson frequently speaks with coaches from both the Tigers and Crimson Tide.

"I just talked to Coach (Jeff) Stoutland five minutes ago," he said, "and I'm supposed to get Coach Stud (Studrawa) on the phone tomorrow."

West Monroe, the defending Class 5A state champion, is 7-2 following last week's 31-7 setback to American Heritage (Delray Beach, FL).

"We tried to just let that roll off our back," Robinson said of last Saturday's stunner. "On Sunday, we went to the field house and watched film; we saw a lot of small things that kept us from winning.

"By Monday we don't even want to worry about it; getting that championship ring on our fingers should be our only focus."

What does West Monroe need to accomplish in order to repeat as state champs?

"Play with intensity and discipline," Robinson replied. "We just need to do what we've been doing largely overall all year; with our brand of football - where you go out and hit the opponent in the mouth - we should be fine."

Robinson spent his freshman and sophomore seasons at Ouachita before transferring to district rival West Monroe. He'll likely get the opportunity to catch up with former Ouachita teammate Cameron Sims at LSU/Alabama.
