Safety Neiko Robinson had a super game for Northview, as they won the Florida single A state title over Trenton on Friday night. Robinson finished with 11 tackles and a key early interception. That pick gave Northview early momentum and they never looked back.
Also key in the win were several early big hits by this Penn State commitment, as he set the tone for the night. Robinson was terrific in run support, showing an aggressive and hard hitting game. Sometimes though, he's a tad overly aggressive and over runs some plays.
Robinson has good speed and covers a lot of ground in a hurry. He's fearless in the secondary. Robinson mainly plays free safety but sometimes lines up near the box. Unfortunately, Trenton didn't pass the ball much, so it was hard to get a gauge of what he's like in coverage.
Only 6-foot-0 and 170-pounds, he certainly will need to bulk up for the Nittany Lions.
Below are a handful of plays of Robinson from tonight's state title game.
