Alabama lineman Cam Robinson on viral block: ‘I don’t get to go downfield much’
Thanks to Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson, the race for block of the year might already be finished.
The 6-foot-6, 326-pound sophomore lineman made a push for the ages against Wisconsin this past Saturday, driving his defender at least 20 yards downfield before discarding him out of bounds in the Crimson Tide’s 35-17 victory over the Badgers.
Speaking with media before practice on Tuesday afternoon, Robinson laughed when the play was mentioned.
“It was a pretty good feeling,” he said according to TideSports.com‘s Allesandra Delrose. “I don’t get to go downfield much, so it was pretty fun, I guess.”
Robinson claimed he did not realize how far he traveled until watching film of the game.
“While it was going on, I was kind of in the moment, so to speak,” he said. “I didn’t really notice it until I got up and was like, ‘Oh man, I’m kinda far down the field.’”
Alabama moved from No. 3 to No. 2 in Tuesday’s Associated Press Top 25, and will face Middle Tennessee State on Saturday at 3 p.m. in Tuscaloosa.
