A wide receiver from Air Force? College football fans may have some familiarity with Air Force as a running only option team. This is true. That being said, wide receiver may be an exception to the military rule. Robinette is so unique, that it’s impossible to quantify him in any category. Robinette leads the nation in averaging 27.7 yards a catch. He’s also the all-time leader there with 2,528 yards receiving.

“Speed kills” as John Madden use to say, and this guy has the traction. Consequently, When Air Force played in the Arizona Bowl on Dec. 30th, 2016, the CBS announcers compared him to Calvin Johnson. Say what? Yes, that is correct. His two catches in the game went for 75 yards and 49 yards. If this guy hits an open space, try and get a glimpse of his heels. That’s about all anyone will see. Similarly, he could be a nice secret weapon for the Black and Gold to have.
