According to longtime Florida prep football records archivist Buddy Collings, Robinson's 11 defensive touchdowns -- in only five games -- is a single-season state record.

Collings, an Orlando Sentinel prep sports reporter, said today that, as far as his archives go, the Knights eclipsed the previous mark held by the 1995 Lake Butler Union County squad. Robinson (5-0) has returned seven interceptions and four fumbles for TDs. Junior OLB Javaughn "JJ" Johnson has five of those scores (two INTs, three fumbles).

"That said, I can't say I am 100-percent certain of a state record," Collings said in an e-mail to the Times. "It's such an unusual category."

According to Knights coach Mike DePue, the Knights have a plus-13 turnover margin so far, recovering 10 fumbles and picking off 10 passes.
