Here's to you, Mr. Robinson

Allen Robinson might go down as the best non-basketball player to ever play basketball at Orchard Lake St. Mary's.
Well, evidently Robinson's athletic future lies in football. He's going to play in college at Penn State and that'll be his primary focus in a couple of weeks.
But until then, there's the little matter of leading St. Mary's basketball team to Breslin Center and still showcasing why he could be a Division I hoops player if he wanted.
Robinson has been incredible the last two games, scoring 33 points against Hartland and then adding 34 in a one-point win over Novi Detroit Catholic Central to help lead St. Mary's to a Class A state quarterfinal, where the Eaglets will face Bay City Western at Davison on Tuesday.
It's a compliment to him that he's still taking basketball so seriously even though he isn't going to continue playing the sport in organized fashion come the end of next week.
Hopefully St. Mary's can get to East Lansing and the whole state can see just how special a talent he is in basketball and see why he figures to be a great college football player.
- In a way, it's a good thing that Clarkston lost to Bay City Western in a regional final on Thursday. If the Wolves would've won, they would've played St. Mary's in a state quarterfinal, which might have created an uncomfortable situation. Clarkston head coach Dan Fife and St. Mary's head coach George Porritt are great friends, and Porritt is both a Clarkston resident and alumn of the high school. When Fife and Clarkston had trouble advancing past the quarterfinals in the last decade, Porritt was one who wanted to see Fife breakthrough badly, rooting for the Wolves like he would for his own team. Seeing the two meet in a quarterfinal certainly would've been awkward.
