Michigan Football: GBMWolverine Senior Salute and Appreciation — Denard Robinson

Denard Robinson — Quarterback/Athlete — Deerfield Beach, Florida

Someday in the near future, some Michigan player will wear number 16 as a legacy player in honor of Denard Robinson. The legacy will be for on the field achievements and off the field traits that include loyalty, doing things the right way, supporting Michigan as a student, and just being a joy to be around.

On the field Denard’s combined yardage marks will be hard to break for future quarterbacks. Denard has been a touchdown and a turnover machine, but think how well he has handled the good and the bad.

It is unfortunate that Denard will have to end his career by missing games due to injury. But, he has always been able to overcome adversity and get off the deck and come back again and again.

There may or may not be a spot for Denard at the NFL level. He can run a 4.32 or so and punt returner, slotback, or defensive back is not out of the question.

Here is a guy that came to Michigan to have a chance at playing quarterback, and through it all the pluses have outweighed the negatives. Somewhere in the future Denard should achieve success, not only by what he can do, but also by who he is.

Number 16, Michigan legend, Denard Robinson.
